This is a very nice picture of this eagle. You've captured him in interesting pose and with some very good details. The overexposed rocks in the BG are a little distracting, but apart from that it's a good shot.

Hi Sochirca, this is a very nice pose you have caught here. The composition is also good. The only thing that detracts here is the lighting, it's coming from behind the bird leaving the eyes and head in the shade. You made a good job of it however. Well done.
