Well captured, simple. I like the HDR treatment.

Wow great shot. I spent a week at our Sportsmens Show recently very near to a raptor exhibit. I didnt get one good shot. You got a prize winner there Simon.

Nice! It deserves the watermark.

Hi Simon

The 2nd shot is a real winner for me... the 'head and shoulders/ wings' really shines!

Love the detail the HDR brings out, except the halo effect is a bit noticable. Still - a great shot.

Agree you should keep a watermark on it, but imho - it could be a bit smaller / less conspicuous.

Well done. What lens / camera combo? Was this taken in the wild?

Paul

bynx it funny you say that i only took six photos at this one, all of them of the sea eagle 4 of them were usable ... the hdr wasnt needed that much really as the original is ok too

as for the watermark im just playing with some software i know it could easily be removed .... if somone wanted the original i would hapily give it to them

this was taken with a d90 55-200 unfortuanatly not wild i just dropped lucky with the background
