|Wow, a top ten free-study image asking for critique. I'll give it my best shot, but clearly this is a good image that the community enjoyed a lot. Nicely done!
For me, what I especially liked about the image was those water drops. Seeing the splash added to the action of the image. Plus the bird is just majestic, quite the beauty, and that shape of the wings made the photo unique to me. I gave this image a 6 during voting, so it was an image I thought was executed and presented very well. The only thing that might have made it stronger for me was had there been more detail in the fish, or had the eagle been facing towards the camera. But still, this is just a fantastic catch. Thanks for sharing.
