this is great. What a great capture of this eagle. Colours are nice and natural and composition is also good.
Great work, JAcob

great picture, you manage to catch its yellow eyes, good 4u, TFS Ori
Very nice in flight. Good sharpness and composition. You have stopped the action well. I have posted a WS trying to get a little more out of the image. Hope you don't mind.
Just noticed a couple of things from you exif data. Firstly I'd shoot in Colour Mode II as this is better suited to general shooting, especially if you are going to PP. Also, I'd pull the iso down a little as 640 is pretty high for bird shots...you shot this at 1/800th Second with a VR lens. You could probably drop back to iso 320 - 400 no problems and get better resolution out of the sensor. Finally, If you are shooting JPEG then turn of any in camera setting that has AUTO on. Definately change the auto saturation and sharpneing values. I find sharpening set to meduim high (+1 equivalent) does a good job. Set Saturation to NORMAL. Hope this of help...it works for me but try it out.

You did well to capture the bird so well in flight. Focus is spot on, sharpness is good. Excellent shot

Nice picture of this flying eagle, well captured. Good sharpness and composition. Paul made a good job on his workshop to push a little bit the contrast.

Great in-flight capture of the Short-toed Eagle with fine detail and little noise, especially as you used high ISO.
