Technical Details

Sony a6500, FE100400GM @ 279mm (418mm w/crop factor), ISO-100, f/6.3, 1/2500, hand held.

Score! If this were mine, I would not change a thing. Great shot.

Wow, Gary! I want to know what it was going after. A rabbit maybe? Terrific detail. Those talons! And I like how we can see that tail isn’t uniformly white. Such concentration. Wingspread, feather detail - it’s all pretty terrific. Great handling of the direct sun, too.

Really a dynamic pose and image. The intensity is wonderful. Interesting habitat that adds interest.

When I view the larger image, the whites of the head look a bit odd. They have a lot of contrast and a feel of being a bit over processed. While I like to be able to see detail in the white heads of these magnificent birds, I also know what they look like naturally.

A very cool image, Gary. I like the fierce look of the eagle about to attack the poor innocent dandelions-it makes for an interesting contrast. I do agree with Keith that the head of the eagle looks a bit overprocessed.

Great timing and very nice wing pose with good details in the underwing in what seems to be fairly harsh lighting. I also like the flowers as that is not something you ever see in a photo with a Bald Eagle.

HI Gary
It looks like the FE100-400mm lens is by fare sharper and has better dynamic range then you FE200-600mm G lens. Everything in this shot pops.
