I sooooo would have bumped this up in my scoring if you had done curves (or another application of curves) as the feathers of the Eagle are very dull/flat in tone...beautiful capture

Great capture caught at just the right moment, I love the intense look on the bird's face with those nasty talons at the ready, just very glad I'm not the subject of his gaze!

Great action shot. You did lose a lot of detail with noise reduction it seems.
