    I just came across this forum and am looking for some input on my latest photos. I've had my DSLR for about 6 months and have slowly been adding a few lenses and also trying to figure out how to improve my skills.

    This weekend I went and took a few eagle pictures and am looking for some criticism. I know I'm an amateur, but really just want some advice. One area I definitely need some direction in is post processing, I'm definitely a starter in that area. I currently use CS2 for my post processing.

    Here are my pics.

    Pic 1 - Eagle Swooping in to land

    I tried to do a little better job in Photoshop using Curves...I also reduced the amount of sharpening...

    Thanks for taking the time to look at my photos.

    These look good to me. The only thing I would like better is if there was a higher depth of field to make the eagle "pop" more. Oh, and a closeup of the face would be cool too. :)
