Eric, they weren't loading for me either, but only for a very short period. There must have been some glitches between your server and the rest of the internet but only for a small amount of time.

Nice shots Eric. Would have been better if you had shot in RAW. 100-400 is a nice walk-around lens.

I agree. I only use RAW now... I hadn't been shooting seriously for very long at that time.

yeah...RAW is amazing...especially with Camera Raw in CS

it would definetely help with playing around with the exposure for these...

i don't have the memory for RAW though :-\

only 1 128mb

I did play some with the brightness directly (using shadow/highlight to lighten the shadow part a bit), but I didn't like the results. It wasn't that more detail was visible... it's got the detail now (on my calibrated monitor, any ways.) I just like having the part of the head in shadow.

Do others find this too dark? How clearly can you see the hawk's right eye (left to us)? I can see it fairly clearly (but at work the eye was almost gone.)

Eric, now that I am viewing the first photo on my newly calibrated monitor (using MonacoOPTIX thanks to your recommendation), I can see the hawk's right eye perfectly. There seems to be plenty of detail in the shadowed areas of the hawk.
