Just leave me alone

By JLWebster
Took the kids to Eagle Heights this morning, as the weather was nice and warm.
I get the impression this Bald Eagle wanted to be left alone today.
Thank you to every one that has left comments on my photographs. your advice is well needed.

WEll detailed shot.
But maybe waiting until the eagle was facing upwards so you could see more of the face and and eyes, and maybe to focus on the eyes and feathers more instead of most of it on the beak. Hope that helps Sad.

It was taken a this angle for a moody look, but many thanks for your advice.

Such an incredibly dignified creature deserves special presentation, hence my modification. Lovely shot.

Nothing wrong with it at all, you could maybe bring out the left eye slightly in PS or similar, but i like the pose.

This is an excellent image, Jeanette-Louise, but you have put it up for critique and I can therefore understand why Scott and LynneJoyce have suggested lightening the eye area. You certainly achieved the moody look you were after, but I still feel he looks moody in the modification that has been done for you, even with the eyes lightened. I think it's just a case of bird photographers liking the eyes to be the prominent feature and, if you look at your "Bald Eagle 2" in your portfolio, just as an example, you have good detail on them there. If you like it the way it is, that's fine, and I do like the way you have presented it.

Nice shot, but it may have been better if there was more eye contact and the focus was on the eyes and the area around them. I would have been inclined to clone out the white "streak" on the beak,

Although I echo previous comments regarding light where a slight adjustment in brightness/contrast might improve the image, this is still a fine raptor portrait. Well done.

I think you got a point there but in some situation it is better to shoot then loosing it completely... fare enough if you get that chance, but hey what is this Photoshop is for!! I think I have proven your point up to sertain point by post processing this image... just click the link and see what you think! I personally like the attitude of an Eagle, it matches perfectly with the title! I have also loaded Mod.

Sorry, forgot to mention.... after clicking the link, to see 720p HD video enlarged, simply click on 240p and select 720p HD from the list and hit play, then click on next pop up box which will bring video box out and then Full screen (four arrow) sign to view in full screen.
