Female Bonelli's Eagle in the host monitor the area. After 8 days of getting up at 5 am finally appears nerves are tuned ... I have visited the Queen of the rocky Mediterranean. Are a thousand couples in Europe. Hope you like

Well presented and a great stand proud pose

its a wonderful shot. sharp and clean, i would lose the foreground bush on the left, its distracting the eye away from teh centre of your shot an main subject. The focus on the eagle itself is spot on along with great DOF

Lovely image with good focus on the eye. I might be tempted to clone out the grasses behind the tail which are slightly distracting and the sky looks a bit messy, particularly on the left hand side for absolute perfection!

Very nice indeed Jose Julian. Perfect lighting.

I have uploaded a mod where I have flipped the bird horizontally so he is looking to the right and cropped the shot so he less in the centre. The end of the slope in the main rock, before the other rock starts is a handy place to crop the photo. Also I cloned out the whispy grasses around his tail.

Magnificent shot and worth the early starts.

best wishes

Catherine

Is it me or does he appear to be leaning backwards?

I've uploaded a quick mod in which I've verticalised him (using Picasa) which has coincidentally placed him away from the centre which was the other thing I was going to do.

Hope this helps.

Bren.
