Actually an easy shot. The rich, warm lighting came from two halogen work lamps. I took a number of shots at various angles and came up with this as being the best.

Very little post production needed: crop, levels, slight increase contrast, very slight saturation, no USM because it brought the strings out too much and obscured the eagle.

I am not really sure what I am seeing exactly, but that is part of it's charm. This is very well done! 9

Beautifully composed shot. The lighting is a tad harsh, but otherwise, very well done.
