I haven't had any time to take anything new the last few days. The sun came out today so I had to work in the yard all day. So the same eagle, just a different shot and played with again to improve the dull sky.

I prefer this one to the original as the processing gives more emphasis to the eagle - Carole

A magnificent bird, not sure it really needs a heavily textured background but I guess that is just down to personal taste, a super capture regardless.

Nice one Sandy - good use of textured layers.
I smile when you mention "yard" - as in UK it means the small area around the back door, whereas for you in US it refers to the whole garden WinkWinkWinkWink

This looks much better, Sandy. More contrast and much sharper. Just one niggle...that crack from the layer which is superimposing itself onto the eagle's head.

Other than that, perfect Smile

Ye gods and little fishes, Sandy (don't ask me what it means, it is something we used to say as an outburst many years ago...).
That stare reminds me of my French teacher at Itchen College in southampton. He could wither bushes from a great distance, I recall.

Very much like the treatment here...you do this style so well.
