Hi Grin

I had a lovely day at the zoo today, weather was perfect. The snow leopards are still my favourite every time, as is this wonderful Bald Eagle who poses very well for all to see.

After seeing a fellow togs eagle image, I really liked the processing treatment he gave it, so thought I'd try it myself, although I don't think it's nearly as good. Anyway V2 is the original if V1 isn't your cup of tea.

Thanks so much for all the clicks n comments on 'Essentials', means so much Grin

A super capture, Kaleena, but I think the original works best for me. Carol

Great shot !!!.....both versions are top notch !!.....but the treatment in V1 adds a bit of 'oomph', & makes
the birds 'expression' look quite 'sinister' !!.....nice one !!

A beautiful capture of a stunning creature...the original for me, although I can see the attraction of the processed image.

The bg doesn't do you any favours in the original, Kaleena but v1 is beautifully done. Loads of impact and the processing suits the fierceness of the boids expression.

I like both, V1 does tone down the background, great expression and detail.

An interesting process on v1 that pulls out a lot of detail in the feathers and at the same time gives a moody feel to it.

Personally for me i like v1
