I love the majestic isolation of this bird of prey as he sors past the falls. IMO this is a once-in-a-lifetime image and you were graced to have it be yours. Congrats on being the one to capture it, and trust that I will enjoy it for years to come. Thanks for sharing this marvelous image!

Interesting and nice shot. I like the falls itself, very impressive, bird just added flavor to this photo :) I wonder if there should be bit more contrast though. It might be mist of the water :)

The crop is too close to the top of the falls for me. A little room above them would be nicer.

A little more saturation might brighten up the photograph.

The bird makes this more interesting but I'd try a different crop so it was not so centred.
