The much photographed pair of Bald Eagles, in the Eagle sanctuary at Ketchikan, Alaska.

I blurred the background a smidge, and boosted the levels and colours. I still think the white crest is a bit bland, and does not capture it as well as the naked eye.

Hi Paul,
Nice shot - I particularly like the composition with the birds in a diagonal line. Know what you mean about the white not shining out as it might - but it's a natural looking shot. Nice detailing on the body feathers which almost look a slatey blue colour.
Thanks for sharing

Hoi Paul,
For me it is amazing that you took them together. Very nice.

Hi Paul
Great shot but little bit fuzzy.
Look on my wokshop

This is a beautiful portrait of the Bald Eagle. The dark background allows the focus and sharpness to be concentrated on the Eagles.
Very nice image...

well done, It is difficult to catch the Detail in the whites and not lose the details in the darks, good balance, did you pay them to pose? LOL Very well done.
