Challenge: Best of 2010 (Advanced Editing VII)
Camera: Canon EOS-20D
Lens: Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM
Location: Le Claire, IA, Lock and Dam #14
Date: Jan 30, 2010
Aperture: f/7.1
ISO: 400
Shutter: 1/2000
Galleries: Nature, Birds
Date Uploaded: Jan 20, 2011

Shot RAW with a 2X tele-converter, then tweaked and converted in LR2 with editing done in PSCS2. It's been almost a year but, from what I can remember and by looking at the original, there was some color correcting (yellows & blues), sharpening, dodging and some burning. Then cropped, resized and border added.

Great expressions :) I find myself wondering what this would have looked like as a square crop - there's a lot of nothing going on in the left. Both the bird and the fish hold a lot of interest - I'd like to see them in better detail.

Lovely shot! Great timing. Would love to see more details in the shadows of the eagle's wing but I assume it showed too much noise based on the noise throughout the shot. Perhaps slightly overshapened (look next to wing above eagle's head)
