Well done on your finish. Well deserved. Not all 70-300mm "basic-kit" zooms should be discounted when placed in the right hands ;)

We are not worthy! Superb image with exasperating detail. Love the framing. The BG is extremely well handled (It's in a zoo right? Not unusual for NG) and lets the main subject pop in 3D reality. Perhaps this was achieved in PP or merely with superb exposure technique. i.e. -0.5 EV. Be wary if submitting to NG if you have PP the image. Publishable? Definitely. Perhaps a tiny bit more crispness on the head, beak and eyes but overall, high marks. 10.
