Bald Eagle taking flight from an IceBurg

This image was featured Here : [link] and [link]

Edit, due to the popularity of this image and an improvement of my post processing skills I have reprocessed this into what I consider an improvement over the previous version, as well as uploading a larger file to share more details. Enjoy.

Edit** well after my reprocessing, the image is more detailed, however, the eagle has landed a bit darker than I intended. I will fix this perhaps tonight. (note to self, invest in a monitor calibrator)

Edit*** ok I think its done now :-) YAY!!!!

Thank you all for your fav's.

Brilliant composition! :clap: It's truly the perfect moment, and you've captured it so well. :)
the only thing is the color of the background, I think it would have been nicer a little greener, but that's just me.

Overall, a fantastic photograph! :D

In today's world of Photoshop etc I certainly could pump some green into the background, however the colors are pretty accurate to reality as is. Thanks for your feedback :-)

Wow! I've never seen an eagle in this anatomic configuration before. He looks almost human, or like a superhero. (that is not to take anything away from his beauty as an eagle, just something that struck me as I examined his form). Exceptional photo!! :wow:

Thanks, hmm a humanoid eagle :-) The poses they take are infinite, When they take off and land, their wings go through such huge transitions each step is on its own a beautiful moment worthy of capture. :)
