Great detail and expression. What I want is the traditional space in front of rather than behind him. I might have gone with a vertical crop to get that. Gave this an eight. I think it will do nicely for you. 6.8
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/08/2015 09:31:47 PM
I predict 6.5. Very clear, well balanced, well lit.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/08/2015 07:35:16 PM
I say you are close... love the contrast and monochrome. 6.3
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/08/2015 06:49:24 PM
Very elegant. Beautiful detail, tone and sensitive composition. I think in this group, it will be higher than your estimate, probably a 6.8 or even better.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/08/2015 05:59:24 PM
Good b/w & detail...I think in the range you choose 6.2 I vote 7.0
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/08/2015 02:47:56 PM
Prediction 6.0. Lovely detail, but the vignette might be too strong.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/08/2015 12:18:51 PM
Great capture...I think the vignette's a bit too strong, but otherwise well done. 6.5
  Photographer found comment helpful.

This can only succeed as eye candy, and as such it has some problems: it is black and white with a big dark vignette, and you're cropped too close for eye candy lovers. Still there is a lot of detail on the face. I think you'll get a straight 6

you wish 5.85

Awesome photo. Top marks

My guess is your guess 6.4758

This is among a relatively small number of images that I think will score well. 6.5

Very nice portrait. 6.78
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/07/2015 04:59:45 PM
I gave it a seven. Guessing a 6.453
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/07/2015 11:48:31 AM
Sharp! Just how DPC likes it - I suspect you're about right. 6.47
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/07/2015 06:13:37 AM
Wonderful capture of the bird! 6.23
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/06/2015 03:50:18 AM
great sharpness and texture is visible in dark and light feathers due to well chosen exposure - 8 from me, predict 6.75
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/05/2015 11:32:48 PM
Nice sharp eagle. Great lighting with good depth of field and complementary background. I hope you score at 6.47 Good luck.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/05/2015 08:33:40 PM
Top 10, maybe top 5 - 6.50
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/05/2015 07:32:40 PM
I think you'll get hit for looking out of the frame so close to the left. The right 1/3 of the picture doesn't do a lot for it, imo, and takes away from the overall. Also the vignette so close on the left closes it down. I think it would have worked much better if you had darkened the right side and not the left (in more of a gradual vignette). I'm guessing 5.65.

He looks thoughtful. Planning his next fishing trip, maybe. Great detail and Eagles are a very popular subject, deduct a smidge for the people who hate captive shots (because this looks like one) and I'll guess you're about right: 6.51
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/05/2015 06:56:12 PM
Nice, great detail! 6.5 Scratch that - magnificent detail! A terrific image and one of my favs in this competition. I gave it an 8
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/05/2015 03:45:35 PM
Nice. I'd actually say 6.7
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/05/2015 03:16:46 PM
Wow a beautiful bird and it the black and white suits it perfectly. A 7
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/05/2015 02:39:15 PM
yes this is true fact,,,,, but ends close to 6,8 + my guess
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/05/2015 02:36:17 PM
Lots of great details. 6.39 should be pretty close.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

That may be just about right...6.478
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/05/2015 12:52:56 PM
nice detail... not a fan of the vignette on it.
and is it Too Much to ask that for once, please, stop putting wigs on these bald eagles. they are magnificent the way nature made them. stop telling them they need to have feathers on top of their heads to be beautiful. ;)

6.33

Colors, please!!! Amazing bird and very sharp on the head. I think this will score well but not as high as your guess. I would say 6.15
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/05/2015 10:17:39 AM
Great close-up. 8 from me.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/05/2015 04:24:29 AM
great picture and so sharp! kinda weird having the bird look into the small space on the left of the frame. the score is a good guess, I would say 6.51
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/05/2015 02:09:02 AM
I like this a lot! May have preferred if the empty space was in front rather than behind but appreciate that is my own preference. I estimate a final score of 6.75
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/04/2015 08:34:42 PM
I voted before looking at titles, now commenting.

A good portrait, but somewhat overdone subject style.

My guess: 6.12
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/04/2015 07:29:09 PM
Beautiful shot. I think your score should improve upon your title. Eight from me - I predict an average score of 7.1805
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/04/2015 07:03:35 PM
6.358 (I gave it a seven)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/04/2015 11:16:53 AM
It's a good, clear shot of a majestic animal. I would prefer a crop that left more space in the direction it is facing. A fine photograph, but doesn't give me more information or excitement than I had before it which keeps it from being a super high score. 6.1
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/04/2015 10:40:28 AM
Good detail. I predict 6.6.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/04/2015 08:14:17 AM
Love this in black and white, just a beautiful capture, gave it a 7

My guess would be a 5.5
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/03/2015 09:37:42 PM
Scores a bit overerstimated I say around 6.20, eagle seems crammed into the frame, I like a bit more head room, and the dark thick line behind it's head is rather distracting, but apart from that it's sharp. 6
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/03/2015 08:25:15 PM
Don't mess up wit this guy!

My totally irrelevant guess: 5.9
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/03/2015 07:00:38 PM
So sharp in the right places! Well done on the bw conversion. I find the dark line in the bg draws my attention and if it was 'real life' and not dpc rules, I would soften it considerably. 6.62
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/03/2015 05:16:15 PM
Might hit 6 but only just could even 5.894, mono is hard to tell
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/03/2015 01:10:06 PM
Nice and sharp in the right spot. Maybe a different crop would work better. 7
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/03/2015 10:54:30 AM
Nice crisp shot with great detail and a nice sharp eye. But the vignette doesn't do it for me and the crop. Would have like more room in front of the eagle rather than the back.
Sorry I'm in just under your guess.
Back to post my guess. 6.33
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/02/2015 10:32:39 PM
This is very nice shot. For me a 7
