Good sharp focus on the bird. Needs a little PP help with some USM to bring out the feathers etc.

This is a stunning shot. I like it. I just wish you had captured the whole eagle or just the head.

not really a stand of if you're the only one... Nice eagle capture. I think this is the 5th or so I have seen and only 25% through them L()L. Nice details in the body feathers... yet the head feathers are a little washed out. But nice as well. Just something is missing for me. But a good capture overall.

Would of been better if the talons were in the photo.

Seems as though he has a bit of defiant pose, there! Really like the tones and detail in the feathers. Great job!

Strong eyes!

Outstanding portrait, although I'd like to see a bit more space above its head to help balance the body and move the center of attention from it's neck to it's eyes.

I think I would have had more space above the head and less of the body but a brilliant photo.

NIce 'classic' bald eagle pose. I don't like at the bottom that a part of a finger is shown. I think it would have been better of not showing leg parts at all (or if yes, then to show more).
