    Nice balance to that composition. Good colours, exposure spot on, pin sharp, but somehow totally abstract, mainly because there's nothing to give a scale to it. If I had any word of complaint, it would be that I always feel your images ought to be a little larger on the screen.

    Wow. I love it. The "eagle" together with those clouds is brilliant. Great eye on this one.

    That's brilliant. The moon is kind of in the "arc" of the 'eagles' head, and it appears to be looking down on it. Great.

    Thanks!

    Thanks Chris- I have a small monitor, it ain't no fun if I can't see it. :(

    Thank you Dani.

    Thanks, I appreciate it.

    The eagle's POV seems to change for me. Sometimes it's looking over its shoulder, sometimes down. I tried to bring in the boulder on the right as a wing, and sometimes it works for me and sometimes it looks like part of the roost or even a mountain beyond.

    I like finding and working with 'morphs.' I think scale could be a distraction, and it's hard to pull off without losing the illusionary/spirit-like(?) quality of the photo. Most of all, I like being there and getting to see 'em.

    Man, you are on fire! Excellent work again. The texture of the clouds and the rock, with the moon placed in there all works so great together. Composition at its best. Great capture! :thumbup:

    Thank you! It was a really good day- I was able to shoot for the sake of shooting. I was treated really good by nature.

    Thanks Keith. This is becoming one of my favorite shots. I can kind of drift with it and imagine ...

    You certainly caught the spirit-like quality. I think it would look very nice on any of the walls in my home.
