Hello Harry,

Welcome to TrekNature! You start with an impressing picture!!!

The colors, details of the feathers, great POV, action taken at 1/1250 (excellent choice) make this picture a winner...

The only thing is that I would have left a little bit more space above the eagle and under the tail of the fish.

Excellent job and TFS,


Hi Harry,
Splendid...my image of the day (month?, year?) so far....
Amazing in flight and wonderful decisive moment.
I'm really impressed.

wow...this is an unbelievable shot harry. The majority of similar shots I've seen on here have a very narrow depth of field and the wing tips are badly out of focus and thus distract the viewer. This shot has the perfect DOF, keeping the eye of the eagle and the fish in perfect focus. Very impressive.

It is an impressing picture to start with. It is a lovely action shot, with beautiful elegant colours, a perfect exposure and lovely clearness.
My late welcome to TN, nice to meet you.
PD: Your sincere critic on my photo is much appreciated.
Regards, Felipe.

Hello Harry,
Thanks a lot for your last comment about my picture as I discovered your gallery that I haven't seen so far. I'm stunned by the quality and subjects in your picture. They are, like this one, excellent actions shots. Congratulations for this great capture, I love the movement, POV, composition, details and exposure. This is a great shot! I wish that I can visit Alaska someday :) Thanks,

This must be the photo that is at the top of my wishlist. I would LOVE a photo of an African Fish Eagle with it's catch. :)

You did everything by the book here... no nits, just a pleasure to watch this exceptional piece of work.

With an opening like this I will be keeping an eye on your portfolio. Welcome to TN.
