About the Image(s)

Our local club now allows nature mono for mono nature to have the restraint straps showing. Here are two I have taken in the past.
The saw-whet could be cropped but when I do so I think the size of this little bird is lost. Cropping out the strap between the claws gets very touchy. Thoughts.
For the eagle I have edited out the wires. Do you think the presence of the wires detracts from the image?
Judges will be informed that wires, straps plus the usual PSA approved tags are allowed.

I am not a bird or wildlife photographer so can't really comment on the restraints/wires. However the feather detail, particularly on the eagle, is sharp and the tonal variation looks good. The background is soft enough to give a nice bokeh while still placing the birds in a natural environment.   Posted: 10/20/2020 22:15:37
