THIS IS AWESOME MORE SO BECAUSE IT IS BLACK AND WHITE... WONDERFUL DETAIL AND TEXTURES TO DIE FOR.

I NEVER ENJOY COLOURED SHOTS OF VULTURES BUT THIS BLACK AND WHITE IS BRILLIANT...

WELL DONE AND LOOK FORWARD TO MANY MORE AMAZING IMAGES FROM YOU XOX.

One of my favourites for this challenge. This photo is really great (10). Hope to see it on the top 3

Much more attractive than the Turkey Vultures I often see around here. Still not what I'd call pretty, but a surprising dignity in those eyes. Nicely captured.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/24/2012 08:09:21 PM
Not such a handsome fellow but so well captured -- I think he would be pleased with the detail and tonal range of this portrait. In my top 10 for sure.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/24/2012 03:36:53 PM
Wow! This is great work! Sharp in the right places, perfectly soft over-all. The subject is a rare find which brings additional interest to the image. It's hard enough to find such a willing subject, let alone to have one actually pose for you so gracefully. Kudos on one of my favorite entries in this challenge. Awesome work!

I just love the multiple textures and the contrast between them, the fluffy "collar" and the armor like feathers. Great expression in the eyes. Damn! Nice shot! 10

very intense stuff - the eye is magnificant but I wonder about the beak as it appears smoothed in some unnatural way

My Yellow - 9

I normally give out an eight for my yellow, but this was too good not to give a 9. I actually think this will win if it can beat out the cat in the hat.
