41 Bill_D (William Donnelly)   (10/14/2004 9:19:03 PM)
Ahh sweet shot but maybe one more Fstop to make the right side as sharp as the left.
42 Hazel   (10/14/2004 9:53:12 PM)
Fabulous Joe. Such clarity and details. She's a beauty that's for sure! Well done!
43 Greg (Greg Governale)   (10/14/2004 10:09:20 PM)
very nice image Joe, I would have liked a little more depth of field especially when working with a captive animal. A shorter lens may have helped! Still, very nice and sharp, with a good exposure! 9.0 Greg Governale
44 George Oze   (10/14/2004 10:49:09 PM)
Good details and pose! Is this bird a young one?

50 Thomas Bauer (Just Beggining)   (10/16/2004 6:31:03 PM)

Nice job with the background Joe!
Seems your talent
Is limited only to “physical equipment”.
That landscape reflection in the eyes,
51 LindaY (Linda Y)   (10/16/2004 8:50:30 PM)
Sorry I am late in commenting on this one, Joe. It has been a busy week. This one is gorgeous! I love the dof that you used here. It looks almost like the style that one uses when taking portraits of humans where you want the viewer's attention to be on the facial features. You have certainly accomplished that here. I can't pull my eyes away from the eyes and beak of the bird. Excellent in every way!
52 Marc Guyt   (10/18/2004 8:57:39 AM)
excellent portrait! Details, colours and light and sharpness are perfect but it is the stare which makes it a winner!
I can't see many things that are wrong on this picture, only wished a bit more dept of field - the unfocused back of the head is a bit distracting.
I think you were well pleased with the result I imagine....
53 ray bayer   (10/21/2004 8:14:29 AM)
Spectacular image. Jaw dropping in fact.
54 martin ma   (10/28/2004 3:05:40 AM)

Extraordinary shot. Impressive details.
61 Terry Forrest (Teresa Forrest)   (2/21/2005 10:55:36 AM)
A superb in-your-face shot, Joe. The bird has a great look that makes me think that he or she is as curious about you as you were about the bird.
62 Rose von Selasinsky   (3/8/2005 5:57:21 PM)
Excellent! This is top of the top. A perfectly presented portrait.
63 frankmedrano   (3/8/2005 6:04:50 PM)

66 Marc Adamus   (4/8/2005 8:24:08 PM)
WOW! Is there any award this image didn't get? I don't think they could even fit one of those little volcano symbols above your thumbnail! Well, all the praise is well deserved, as this is absolutely one of the finest raptor images I've ever seen! Flawless! 10
