odd angle, needs some contrast as looking a bit flat.

Great angle, eye could be have sharper focus.

Better definition on the feathers whould give a better 'Texture' feel.

Good work. Lacks the dynamism to really excite the eye - colours and textures quite muted really, and your presentation (composition and cropping, aspect ratio) isn't actually doing it any favours - not quite sure what i'd change, but the eye being dead centre to frame is a difficult thing to get away with, even though you've promoted it to the top of the image.

+ You did get close to the eagle. There is some texture noticeable.
- POV isn't very interesting at the moment. This could have been improved as the eagle moved its head more to the viewer.

nice shot

felt that becuase the challenge was texture that more feathers coulkd have been in focus to display more texture

For a texture shot, would have liked a larger DOF. Not crazy about this perspective. I think I would have cropped more off the right to focus on the beak and eye area more.

Much of the texture goes unnoticed due to shallow depth of field. Focus seems to be on beak which doesn't hold much in the way of texture or interest. Hard shot to capture perfectly I'm sure, good effort.

This would be awesome with better focus and DOF

Really wish the feathers were in sharp focus. Good angle on this though.

How mighty he looks.

very good photo, more could probably have been made of the texture of the feathers considering this is supposed to be a texture picture. I'd be very pleased to have taken this picture though. I've only marked it a bit low because of its fit with the challenge topic.

DOF too shallow
