Hi PhotoEagleFriends,

I was looking though my recent batch of Bald Eagle flight shots. I decided to crop one of my pictures to only show the head and fish because I thought the feather detail in the white head was interesting. I hope you enjoy this one photo!









Thank you so very much for tagging along with me through my Eagle Adventure!

Hope you like my one photo.

BB, great details and super BG.
Could you crop it without chopping off the left wing?

Very nice detail in the head feathers and the fish scales also. I would keep it cropped this close but shift the eagle to the left so it is flying more into the frame. Basically remove the empty space behind him and add some in front if you have it. You can do this and still keep the same magnification to show off the nice feathers.

Really nice image BB. Good looking fish scales. I like the suggestion from Geoff.

While you are cropping, why don't you go for an even greater crop; at least 50% more! Try it. Don

Beautiful detail BeeBalm, well done. In addition to the crop suggestions, I believe there's room to recover more detail under the wings too.

BB:

I too do not believe a wing should be intentionally cropped unless some how, it enhances the image. In this case, I do not believe it does. The eagle needs to room to fly and the crop produces restraint.

Nicely captured and presented, BB. You may want to try to open the shadows a bit more to show some underwing detail

Sharp, detailed image showing classic Bald Eagle predation. There are some good suggestions here, but the image is still very nice as is.

Chris,
Unfortunately, I didn't capture it's full wing.
Thank you so very much for such kind words! I really appreciate you stopping by

Arbitrage,
Thank you very much for your input.
Yes I always want more space in
front of my bird. But this capture I didn't have the extra space.
My thread is just an experiment.
I have no intentions of printing this 20x30.
This crop is just for fun
So glad you liked the detail I captured very much appreciated!!

I like it BeeBalm,

In my view you could go even tighter on the bird, perhaps cropping some of the top of the image and also cropping the left hand side so that you actually clip the bird's right wing. I'm assuming you have the resolution in the original to do that without compromising the quality too much, but I think it would make it clearer that the wing crops are intentional.
