About the Image(s)

This is a flying bald eagle at a Conservency .
I darkened the shore line because yellow usually converts to a light tone in monochrome.
The white head and tail had also been darkened a bit to avoid lost of texture.
Shadow lightened a bit to show detail of dark wings.
Green grass darkened and blurred a bit to decrease attraction to the eyes.

Sony A 6000
f 6.7 Speed 1/1500 ISO 2500

A very nice capture of this magnificent bird. I like everything you've done in post processing. My only suggestion is that the left wing might be darkened just a bit as it appears to be blending into the background.   Posted: 06/08/2020 11:13:56

An impressive example of wildlife. Probably he has a wingspan of 2 meters and eyes are frightening. Well-edited great shot.   Posted: 06/09/2020 09:33:33

A well captured shot. You have done the right things in post processing to let the eagle stand out from the surroundings and refine the texture.   Posted: 06/09/2020 14:47:06

Beautiful! You capture the right moment.
I like B&W version better.
It has wide range of tone, good composition with a space in right hand side.
I might try to crop the water part just a bit more.
but this is pleasant to see...
Great job!   Posted: 06/14/2020 23:23:18

Great capture and the mono conversion has been handled extremely well. You have also position eagle lovely' leaving room on the righthand side for him to fly into. The detail in the feathers is beautiful and the eye just stands out in the mono conversion.   Posted: 06/15/2020 02:47:01

Very good snapshot, very clear, the bird's look and posture are good.Reasonable composition. Good Feather details.
You may fade the background to make the subject stand out more.   Posted: 06/22/2020 18:43:00
