    WOw...I think this is great. You have this right down to the eyes, and it is really sharp. Nice work. I really dont know if I would change anything.

    what dod you do that it is so nicely exposed?? the whites are not blownout while there are still some details on the black parts!
    I'd change only one thing... crop a bit of a right side. It seems to centered for me. I'm not a fan of central compositions. But this is only my 2 cents :)

    But I agree; there's very little to find wrong with it. I like the composition; not too centered for me at all. Perfect DOF. Sharp as a briar. Great work! :thumbup:

    You know wat, BOTH shots are excellent. I absolutely love the form of the eagle landing on the falconer's arm, and the head is wonderful :)
