The eagle pair in Centerport Long Island were trading incubation duties when I visited them the other afternoon. A little while after dad returned, mom took off and I followed her into the woods and managed to find a clear view through the branches shooting up at about 45 degrees. I was happy that to almost filling the frame with her and that the late afternoon light was showing off her lovely feathers. She blasted off a little while before the sunlight turned golden.

Comments and suggestions welcome,


Very nice shot and love the extended wings. Consider bringing up the shadows a bit in post, since there's some beautiful feather detail "hidden" in there that, IMHO, might make the presentation even a bit more dramatic and interesting. However, as with anything, this is very much a matter of personal taste. (BTW, one other approach would be to increase the "exposure" a bit in post for the entire image, then simply bring down the highlights... either would work).
