Went out today even though it was very dark and overcast.

Nice shot Tom, wish I could get that close to a Bald Eagle.

Thanks, although it wasn't quite a close as the first image seems.

Tom -- Great shot! I know that if I ever got a shot of one around here, it would probably be a once in a lifetime opportunity, and I'd more likely than not find some way to blow it! :-)

You have them on your doorstep all the time, do you? (Nah, I know it takes an effort and skills to get a shot like this.)

I tried Ben Kanareks contrast enhancement method (usm in a few steps). What do you think? Do you notice any difference? Better?

Kjell, you know I forgot about that until you brought it up and I do like the extra punch it gives the photo.

Great shot Tom. I knew where there was a nesting pair of Bald Eagles until I became interested in photography and they apparently decided to move elsewhere. The crop is a nice improvement over the original, which was not bad by any measure.
