This is in my opinion the best photo and best edit I've ever done. If it gets dinged, I hope people leave their reasons why. Open raw, adj white balance, up viberance, open in edit, cropped, Levels midtones down, burn the top of the head a bit. Saved, reopen raw, recovery, and a bit more viberance, open edit, tiny bit of contrast, resized, sharpened, saved for web.

Seconded. I voted yours a point higher.

No dings at all - this is an amazing capture. We who have been here a long time tend to see a lot of eagle shots, but this one truly is very well done. Print this up for yourself nice and large and hang it somewhere! Congrats on the new PB, too!

Makes me think Jedusi has entered a free study. Beautifully done and amazing detail. Bokeh sets off the bird very well.
