What an elegant shot of this tern in full flight! Great timing, lovely details and wonderful composition.

Lovely flight pose captured here, Anna. Could I suggest a slightly different crop? I also reduced shadows and played a bit with the colour balance to brighten the bird up a little.

#5 TW_Bda(Tim White): Excellent crop, Jim! I tried to do similar but my was not as good as yours.
Agree that brightening is a good direction.The day was overcast and grey, there was extreme black - white contrast, that is why I was very careful with pp.
Like your example image. Many thanks!
