Hello from the critique club

An interesting image that contributes well to the open challenge.

It's already been said! What an excellent study, that all powerful eye really transforms 'just another bird portrait' into another league, it dominates the image in exactly the way it should to create a menacing atmosphere of stalking. The light is excellent especially against that darker background. The detail in the feathers is awesome. It could be argued that the beak could benefit from a little more light to but this way its lethal potential is implied in a much more subtle way. I like it all just the way it is well done Eugene and congratulations on your high score and placing.
