Those are truly beautiful shots. Since I can see the leather pieces hanging from the talons, I assume this was a bird used in a birds of prey show at a zoo somewhere. The Portland, OR (Washington Park) zoo puts on these shows in the summertime. It that where these picturese were taken?

It was a show indeed :D.
I don't see them often in real life here.

Very nice.
How do you put your signature in the corner of the pictures?

the first one is very clear but a bit blown the white feathers....i can't find anything about the second one....nice shot :)
a little fringing in the second.....kinda unavoidable though....

nice shots :)
keep shooting and posting your pics :)

Vito ?
the exposure of the first one was dead on, maybe that with the curves in PS I blew out a bit, but I did not notice that as much as you say now ;D.

The signature is very easy, just scan your signature and copy paste it.

That exposure is good on my monitor, which is recently calibrated. When you can see details in the whites, they are not blown out.
