Great shot of this Eagle applying the 'air brakes' - lovely plumage and a magnificent span of tail feathers. Concentration captured in his eyes and a nice crisp head. Well done from me.

Nice but I do not like this area, looks a little strange.

Would be nice if you would vote for others on the day you post a picture, you just posted and ran...

nice catch...could be a bit darker, and this would make the speed look even better

Very nice capture!!! Great light and most of the bird have a great details. Better BG seperation and faster shutter speed will makes this shot just perfect. Still VERY IMPRESSING capture of beautiful predetor in flight!

Cracking flight shot, Helly. I know from experience that these guys are not easy to get a good shot of. I think that if you warm up the tones and then play with shadows and highlights, you can get the bird to stand out a bit more. I tried to show what I mean.
