"Zoo Bald Eagle"



This guy is at my local zoo and I took his picture a couple of years ago. But I decided to go back to it and make a significant change (or three?) to the original picture. What do you think the change(s) was(were)? As a side note, it's interesting to see where our thresholds are for our pictures.

I won't give the shooting parameters away right yet.

Hi Neil,

Bird is now bigger, you have a digital camera which is better, you now have a lens with a sweeter bokeh? But whatever the changes since your earlier attempts, this is a fine shot of a Bald, strengthened by the fact that it does not look like it is in captivity. Watch out for those bright highlights on the tail feather area though. Well done!

looks like there is some artifacts of a chain link fence across its back

Thanks for sharing,

Jeff
