My Friend
Just so that you know I am alive and well - saw you asking Gerhard. I'm snowed under at work, wil get back when things calms down. Japie is well - he was in London last week, also working too hard. I miss you all, and I see you are enjoying the new toy, This is nice, good to see someone having fun. I love this mugshot of Baldie here. Good impact on the viewer with the strong diagonal and the shining eye. Take care

Great work again Luc!, Really like this POV and pose with the eagle looking straight into the sky...Excellent details, colors and exposure, Very well done my friend!!

Hi Luc, magnificent portrait of the bald eagle. Excellent details and colours even to the back lighting.
Very impressive.

Stunning photo, as always, Luc! The sharpness and POV are absolutely amazing. I can't imagine what type of lens you used to get this close. Fill flash was perfect to fill in the shadows and I love the diagonal line from corner to corner. Outstanding!


Superb portrait of a beautiful bird Luc. Fantastic details, great colours and very interesting composition. This is really a great capture - well done.

great shot luc!
very sharp, great colors and a rare pose. TFS!
