Another upload of Quince, the golden eagle, who is about to land on a snack in the heather.
I've added dig.manip in the catagories, because in the original image the wing-tips were almost touching the top of the frame. I added some canvas to the top of the image, and blended it to match the surrounding area. The other edges of the frame are cropped to about 75% of the full-frame size. The image has also had levels adjustment, and sharpening.
