Here's a shot I took earlier this year. Just re-found it tonight. I kinda liked it but the white at the very top of his head just seemed a little too hot to me. Anyway I hope you like it and thanks for looking.

WOW, nice capture. Wish we had more eagles here to get close up shots. I saw my first eagles in flight this Saturday.


Capturing moments in time with some Canon stuff :)

Very nice shot Ray.

Probably not much you could do about the hot-spot, you'd have lost the dark feathers. Its a small area, so maybe you could just clone a few feathers there to hide it?

Still a wonderful detailed image.

Thank you . I will give the cloning idea a try. I do believe you are right about losing the dark area.

The whites are a little hot like you said, but you needed to get the details in the darker feathers so not much you could have done exposure-wise. That's the challenge with high-contrast subjects like eagles. Possibly to a little burn on some of those white areas, might bring out some of the detail. Nice to see all the green - here in MN everything is so monochrome this time of year!

Nicely done Ray, Here is a very quick clone and dodge job, I'm not very good at PP, but this will give you an idea. :D
