Love what you caught in his habitat. Exposure and focus are spot on. I don’t know it the resolution would allow it, but my preference would be of a bit tighter crop from both sides.

I like the pose and sense of action. Good colors and detail and nice clean background. I could see a slight crop on the left.

Lots more pixels, so will do a tighter crop. See what you think.
Thanks -

Sandy, I will be tempted to do a vertical crop here. Love the eagle here, that yellow on the beak and eye really stands out.

I liked the environment in the original , since most of my other shots are tightly-cropped - but I also like the vertical a lot - all thoughts and comments gratefully solicited!


Works for me. Really spotlights a good looking bird.

Really like the cropped version. I can almost hear him crying.
