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. :)

This one was on a Traci-arm cruise out of Juneau. Seems it is not uncommon for the eagles to perch on the ice bergs, The captain approached the ice and of course the eagle took off I was just lucky to be already shooting it and took advantage.
