hello Martin
beautiful picture
great sharpness and good colours
greeting lou

Hi Martin,
We don't see much of your work here. You have some interesting animal shots in your gallery. Wolverine!!! Wow! Anyway, I like this shot. I like the dullish side lighting and the feeling that he is emerging from the darkness. It is for that reason I'm not overly fond of the posted workshop. There is an interesting softness to the white feathers. Did you remove noise from the background and in so doing soften the white feathers a bit? Normally that might bother me, but in this image I kind of like it. So often photos of bald eagles show them very contrasty with very white whites, and very dark darks. This whole image feels more gentle. Thanks for sharing.

Evelynn : )

Hi Martin,
An excellent portrait.The eye contact established is superb.The bird looks regal every bit. I just wish you could have managed some more light.The loss of light has softened the portrait a bit.Nevertheless a very effectve and interesting photograpy.
TFS & Cheers
