Golden Eagle by richmowil

A well-timed image of a Golden Eagle with it's prey has been awarded the Photo of the Week accolade this week. 

The image, titled "Golden Eagle" is by ePHOTOzine member Bill / richmowill and here's why we chose this image to win the accolade:

The Golden Eagle holds the prey down, as though there may still be life left in it, although we suspect not, and the shot looks as though it could have been taken soon after the kill. There's plenty of detail in the bird's features and you can see the fine texture of the prey's fluffy coat giving a contrast between the sharp talons of the bird's feet. If you look closely you can see the red blood tipped beak.

The photo uses a rule of thirds composition, and there is plenty of space in front of the bird, as the bird's eye leads us to look where it's looking. The background is nicely blurred but still makes it clear that we're in the bird's natural habitat thanks to the dark green tones. A really lovely image. 

Photo of the Week winners currently receive a 64GB MicroSD card with SD adapter courtesy of Samsung. See all of the winners of the accolade in the POTW gallery.
