ok, its not a bad shot for a first go ! :) is it captive ? if so, have a read below and see if you can go back and have another go ! :)

Its a little soft/out of focus, a tweak in a photo editing prog could fix most of that.

It would have been better framed, if the eagles head was a little further to left of frame, to allow it some space on the right for it to "look" into !

All in all not a bad go, am certain you will improve on future attempts though :)

Welcome to the forum JW. I like the composition on this shot but I'll echo Ian's comment about the soft focus. I'd also suggest tweaking the brightness and contrast a little.

Just a quick edit, to show how much difference a little levels and sharpen can do :) obviously would be better on the original, rather than the saved for web version

Basically in CS2, did a levels adjust, then ran some unsharp mask on it. If you spend a little more time on it, you could get a much better effect !

The shot was taken at the local zoo. The lens was a Canon 80-200 4.5-5.6 II
ISO 400, 1/125 @ 5.6 and shot as a jpeg. Once I resized the image to load on the forum, some of the detail was lost. I’m using the software that came with the camera.
