Great headshot! Nice sharpness colors, composition, blurred background, blown out in places, but strong image carries the day. Very nice.

A real beauty. I see many eagles around here but never this close. Was he in a wildlife preserve? I give this portrait a 10.

Great mustard beak. Lovely shot. I like him better than regular old baldy.

Talk about close up ... very nice colour and detail. One of my favorites.

Wonderful clarity and detail. The DOF is good and I like that he isn't perfecty centered. The glint in his eye does it for me. 9

6 - Good contrast control in the whites. Criticism; for this 'close', like to see more detail/definition in the feathers/texture/face/etc. Sharper and a crop variation (dependent what you had of course), especially to have the full white 'skirting' feathers around the neck in frame, make this even better in my opinion.

Nice clean detail and great glint in its eye. The color of its beak (?? never really know if it is beak or bill :D) really stands out. Can't tell if you employed selective desat or if the grey-ish background is just due to nice blurring and the time of year. Either way, it works for me (which I don't usually say about selective desat).
