Default Bald Eagle Portrait- Setting Sun Series

I was fooling around with crops of my recent Eagle pics and came up with this portrait. Please feel free to C&C. Maybe this should go in the C&C forum, oh well, have at it.
Thanks,
Steve

Thanks Rocky. I agree, it is a tad soft. Probably due to the fact that I had to shoot at 1600 ISO and I really cropped in close to get the head and I used a noise reducing filter (Noise Ninja) to help with the high iso setting. I tried to not go overboard because I felt that over processing would lead to even more artifacts so I chose this happy medium.
Thanks for your comments, as always, they are much appreciated.

Steve
