One of three Eagles at Van San County Park Zoo in Paramus, NJ. These eagles are rescued after suffering everything from a gun shot to hitting electrical wires and losing a wing. They no longer can fly or take care of themselves so they are cared for here.

Did some cropping, levels, dodge, burn, curves, USM and a bit of cloning to cover a growth in the mouth of the eagle and some imperfections in the image.

A nice capture. I wish there was more detail in the white feathers and the top of his beak seems a bit blown out. Love the pose. He certainly looks like he's screaming.

Appears washed out around the upper beak area. IMO the much needed detail has been lost.

Nice shot, but a little blown out around the top of the head.

Great shot! The top of the head is a bit blown out making it hard to see the detail where it counts.

I love this pose, the colors are good but too bright on the head. If you could darken it but retain the hilights it would pop out the eyes and the beak and would make this great.
