[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A white tailed sea eagle soars above a clear blue sky looking out for potential prey. These birds are migratory birds and not resident species to Brunei. They are possibly migrating from Northern Asia, and are so beautiful to watch as they circle the skies so wild and free...Lighting is critical to capturing the true spirit of these majestic birds of prey. A fast shutter speed is essential as they get closer and I Track the bird using 21 Point C AF_S dynamic mode until the right moment comes to trip the shutter. Conditions were ideal on this day when I set out to photograph the raptor.

Camera Settings:

I shot this in manual exposure mode at ISO 500, 12 bit NEF format in spot metering mode.

PP work:

Edited it in LR 3.0. and resized using CS5.

Any comments welcome and thanks for viewing.
