Thanks for all the posts regarding my three Bald Eagle photos :-) It truly is a stunning bird. For those living near Red Wing, MN, I would highly recommend heading to Colvill Park as there are usually always one or more Eagles there and the chances of one flying over your head or grabbing a fish from the water is good. You are in good viewing range there.

Love all three but the first is amazing! WOW!

How did you get that picture so close? Did you anticipated the eagle at certain point?

The first Eagle photo was taken of a rehabilitated Eagle at the National Eagle Research Center in Wabasha, MN. I just kept my camera lens pointed at the bird 100% of the time hoping for such a shot. It was patience and luck!

That shot is the kind of shot I would print billboard size so everybody could see and admire it, if I were the one who got it. Simply outstanding, and you ought to enter it for potd if you haven't already. Keep up the fabulous work and keep posting. Best regards,

WoW!

Photography is about the actual image and not about the camera that took them. Your picture - the first one, really shows that. Some of my best images too were made with simple or even obsolete cameras.

I agree, you should print it as big as possible.

Again, congratulations!

Thank you KennethD and aswp01 for the compliments on the first Eagle photo. Unfortunately the Olympus C750 is only a 4mp camera so I won't be turning it into a billboard photo for all to see and I doubt I'll have that opportunity again with my Canon 20D! One never knows though!

There's enough detail in that shot, so that it can easily be printed at much LARGER sizes. You have to use the interpolation method, and not a simple resize. You can interpolate it up to 80 megs and it will print FINE at 16 x 20.

Wont be as good as if you had ten or or more MP's, but trust me, it can be done! And done Well!
