Bald Eagle Portrait

While I was fishing at our community lake in the the Poconos I saw one of the eagles we see from time to time perched in a tree. Luckily I had my camera in my car.

Nice pose and detail. Whites below the bill appear a little hot, but the darks are nicely exposed and show nice detail…

Nice detail in the eagle and I like the head turn, Nicholas. The side lighting really makes the beak glow.

Excellent detail, pose and head turn. I would also work on some of the hot white plumage areas.

Thanks for the suggestion David & David. This version is toned down a bit.
