This is kind of a stretch for this challenge and I'm going to get hammered for the American tribute but I'm going to try anyway. Predicting a 5.5 or so.

Post challenge: 9th place?!?!? Never would have thought I could get that. Thanks everyone for voting and commenting but based on what's above me (and my free study entry), I have much to learn.

Good clarity and contrast, with great foresight of the background. Blown highlights on the head are a bit distracting, but overall a contender.

Fantastic capture and editing but too tightly cropped IMO.

Nice eagle shot, very crisp and clean. Too bad about the wing getting clipped off on the left.

Excellent pic. The triumph part is a slight stretch for me

Ok - it's a bit of a stretch for me but I'll give the nod and say this fits the challenge (after reading the title). You've done a good job of getting detail in the browns without completely blowing out the whites - Bald Eagles are tough. I wish the photo were just a little more crisply focused, though. Also, I assume there is a reason why we are not seeing legs and yellow feet?

Nice capture - Great pose from this great bird and the sharpness is spot on. Just a tad off on the blown out highlights.
