Nice find but needs some focus/sharpening help.

Too blown out on top of the head (though as a balding man I appreciate the difficulty of lighting such... LOL!) I'm also just not sure that the focus is there enough.

wonderful portrait of a bald eagle, although i think the highlights on the top of his head are blown out just a bit and it's a tad distracting.

-Considering there is a shot quite similar to this on the front page, my brain automatically is bored with this shot
-It is technically well done, however, I would like to see something more unique

Composition: 5 - I'd have liked some extra space of the left for it to "look into"
Technical: 5 - There is some overexposure on the head and I think the background would add more impact if it were darker.
Creativity: 4
Appeal: 5

Overall Calculated Average Score: 5
