About the Image(s)

Taken with my Sony A7RM5, Tamron 50-400mm lens, ISO 1000, 1/2000sec at f/6.3 with +.7 compensation. Because of the blank sky I decided to convert to b&w using a LUT in ON1 2024. Added dynamic contrast at 50% to the eagle. Used ON1 DeNoise and Topaz Sharpening. I think there might be a bit of fringing on the right side of the head and maybe the body. Not sure how to remedy it.
Sorry, I'm still pretty much pecking with one finger. Fracture stabilized with plate and screws and now I'm in a removable splint for four weeks.

Nice shot and I like your crop. I might have used the leaves around and above the eagle to give it a frame but am guessing I'd like your treatment better. It does look a bit flat to my eye. I played with the whites and contrast to punch it up a bit. Nice work!   Posted: 07/10/2024 14:42:29

The intense stare and expression of this Eagle hold my attention. I like the perspective. The bird seems to flow into up and into the background, and then my eyes meet those eyes. The image works well in B&W. May you heal well and fast!

I really am a great admirer of B&W done well as this is. The stark sky pulls they eye to the Bird's stare, here is the drama, what have they focused on? The bird is crisp, sharp, and the image well composed. the image is powerful, striking, and to the prey there is danger. For me it is the entire story. Well done I would change nothing.
