This is a nail bitter. It's a really crisp shot but the fact that it says don't photograph an eagle makes me not want to give it a high score. Ughhh I'll have to vote on the whole challenge and come back to this one.


so why such a high finish? guess nobody read the damn rules this time around. super cliche shot.

Great detail, colors and composition and definitely symbolizes the US.

No points for hitting the cliche!

Could do with a little more deth of field as the outline feathers of the eagle's head are not in focus.

I'm sorry, it's a nice shot, but when the challenge description says "For example, it is a stereotype using an eagle as a symbol of USA. However, challengers could photograph something else to represent the spirit of USA instead of an eagle.", it's hard to score an eagle high...

Not the most original spin. A very well done eagle portrait, though.

Cliche though it is, somehow you got a fantastic capture, and so I must give you a 9

pin sharp. No doubt what country this bird represents

Came back to bump this photo. I originally had this at a 4 because I thought the challenge description said that submissions should not be of an eagle. On review though, I notice it says photogs could photograph something other than an eagle. Sorry for the oversight, I have scored your photo a 6 now. Good luck :)

Great focus and clarity. I bet you're going to get a lot of people asking if you read the challenge description.

Don't suppose anyone has pointed this out yet-

For example, it is a stereotype using an eagle as a symbol of USA. However, challengers could photograph something else to represent the spirit of USA instead of an eagle.

I despise these Eagle shots. They are such a DPC cliche. This does however suit the challenge so I'll have to like this one I guess. Nicely composed. DOF is good but we seem to be lacking detail in the lower feathers which is a shame because it takes our attention a bit

WOW, I love these shots, great looking bird right there, 10.
