Light was pretty harsh... and I should have removed my 1.4X TC - but still, I am not all that unhappy with these.

A99ii + Minolta400/4.5 @ 560mm F8, 1/2000s. ISO 500+ Handheld.

An impressive bird! Well captured. A petty from the dust bunnies and a sort of dark halo around the bird in #1 and 2. Is that a PP effect?

Thanks everyone!

Fred, yes if you see a halo (I don't) it will be from pushing the files a bit. Sun was high in the sky and harsh.
Dust bunnies are my nemesis. Time for another stab at cleaning. Though I don't doubt they are there, again, I don't see them here. (though I often do and remove them of course) I suspect your monitor is set much brighter than mine.

Best regards

Smashing shots and it must of been one hell of an experience - such a majestic creature.

BTW I see a slight darker halo on the two shots Fred mentioned but I had to really look plus you would expect a brighter halo if you were pulling details from the shadows so not sure what would cause a darker localised halo???

Cracker series! Think #3 would be my pick but #4 isn't far behind...bet you are kicking yourself for the clipped wing.

Can't see the halo but do notice some dust if I scroll up/down, have a real dust bunny riddled A77 so it's turned into a habit zooming in a tad and scrolling through my shots in LR before exporting.

Thanks again for all the nice comments!

And Johan, I DID do the zoom and scroll (and fix) before exporting. (That should tell you the state of my dust bunnies - yeah, I REALLY need to look after that. )

Cheers everyone!

Should see my shots mate. The old A77 is about to tick over 100k and has yet to see a sensor swab. My last F/22 test shot looked like I had flipped the mirror up and sneezed into it.

You captured the eagle's flight movements well. Nice images.
