I really like this photo, but the wire fence in the backgroud takes away from the regalness of the bird. I would welcome a workshop in this photo to give this beautiful bird more dignity.

Hi, Carol. This is my favorite bird and although the exposure, sharpness, pose and eyes are in sharp focus I agree the wire is a great distraction. I did a workshop per your wishes to restore its dignity. I hope you like it Cheers.

This is wonderful Carol. Such sharp detail and beautiful color. I agree. Would love to remove the fence. I am not a PS expert, but I hope someone else can help. But the shot is still a great capture.

Hi Carol,

This is a very good shot of the eagle, with a nice profile of its head to show off its huge beak. I agree with you regarding the fence, so I assume this was taken in some type of an enclosure? Brech did a nice job in his workshop, it would take me forever to change the background with the software I use. The challenge now is to photograph one in the wild ;))

Warm regards,
