[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note

A picture of a Fish Eagle at the Chobe river in Botswana. What to say more about this proud bird? I enjoyed the view of this magnificent bird.

PP work: shot in jpeg, adjusted levels and curves, contrast and saturation. Cropped and sharpened with USM. Resized, sharpened again and add frame.

Waw...what a great capture this wonderful Fish eagle!
Details and colors are fantastic.
Blue of the sky on BG is beautiful!

Hi Hans

Delightful photo - beautifully composed, and great sharp detail.

There does seem to be some 'bleeding' of colours or shadows, around the head and chest of the bird, and also near the branch at the bottom left - did you have to do some burning to reduce exposure, as well?

Impressive shot.

Nice shot Hans, good sharp shot with plenty of detail and colour, there is a bit of a 'dark' halo on the left of the bird but nice shot. I particularly like the spark in it's eye. Best wishes
