'Just Being Eagle Eyed!'

By briantjjones
A long distance Telephoto shot of a Bald Eagle perched high in a large fir tree in a small town named Hoonah in Alaska, last August 2012. It was only by chance I spotted the bird while looking at a sea plane which was out of shot. I liked the way the sunlight caught one side of the eagle and highlighted the wing feathers.

Thanks for taking the time to view.

Kind Regards, Brian J.

Nice image, although I think i would work on the breast feathers a bit with the dodge tool. I bet there is detail in there waiting to come out. Low viewpoint, so what does long distance mean? A very tall tree.

Its a good, and fortunate shot. Very nice eye detail and catch-light. Looks to have a slight magenta colour cast on my monitor, so uploaded a mod with a colour balance adjustment

Thanks again for your mods much appreciated.

In answer to your question Paul is was at least 50 yards away from the tree which was over 60 feet tall and the eagle was very near to the top.

Willie I've recallibrated my screen so hopefully that may help.

Regards, Brian.
