Hi Paul,
Hoe is het er mee? Even uit beeld geweest.
Wat een schitterende foto! Dat je de gelegenheid kreeg om in deze positie zo'n opname te maken! Fantastisch. Gaat direct bij mijn favorieten.

This is a stunning image! I would love to have a blown up version for the wall in my lounge. Congratulations, this is remarkable. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

amazing original capture, TFS Ori

Hello Paul,
Le cadrage est est parfait, la lumière douce et bien contrastée. Bravo pour cette prise !
Best Regards.

Hej Paul!
Nice to see your post again.
A fine and unusual shot of the Golden Eagle.
The sharpness, DOF, light management in the snow and POV are superb. I wish we had such a hide here!
Thanks and best regards,

Hi Paul
Terrific photo, very amazing pose. Super POV , detail and colour
Thanks for sharing
Best regards

Hi, Paul
This is a very dramatic image, with the eagle facing straight into the viewer's face. Getting an image like this usually requires a great effort, with long and boring periods of waiting in bitterly cold conditions, with short periods of great excitement - if you are lucky, so I appreciate the work that will have gone into obtaining this imposing picture. I agree with Tom that I would have adjusted the exposure in post processing a little, but I very much envy you the experience of peering down the viewfinder while the eagle looked straight back at you!
Best wishes, Nigel.

Hi Paul. It's an interesting shot in the eagle's pose. It's also neat to see all the patterns in the feathers. I like your POV. Any lower and you'd have lost the feet to view. A very unique photo. TFS Trevor
