    Well...this is one of the eagle pictures from a yearly adventure in Alton, IL. I finally got the picture to were I would like it after a couple of days in photoshop, and still am not completely happy with it cause I forgot to change frame to black and white. But anyhow...some general critique on composition, or anything else you can think of. Thanks. OTE

    it may be my monitor, but the overall image appears overexposed just a bit.

    very nice shot... it can be tricky to get near one in the wild. The picture does appear a bit blown to me and perhaps the white balance may need some tweaking. I have seen many bald eagles in the wild both up close and at distances. In this case the head and beak are too light. perhaps this is also caused by the over exposing

    yes, like they said, it is a little blown, and the head seems a little out of focus. But I have to give u kudos for getting a close up of a wild animal. I got some good shots of a hawk once, but they werent nearly THAT close
