    As much as I've been enjoying your Bald Eagle series, Dan this one has some great intensity in the banking pose, keeping his eye on the prey, nice head turn, beak starting to open and like the wingtips curling. Nicely framed.

    You caught a fine pose here Dan and the colour of the bird is more in line with what I'm used to seeing. A dandy image. Do you have room in the white on top of the head to reduce that exposure a bit and try to find some feather detail there?

    Solid eagle image. Like the looking back/down pose. The crop works well. Nice and sharp.

    A very pleasing image, slightly unusual pose and a fine background, the plumage looks great though I do agree maybe there is some extra detail to be had in the whites.

    I agree with seeing if you can tease out a bit of detail on the head, and I would also perform a bit of NR to the front wing. I love the pose and especially the evergreen forest background - pretty cool.
