This is so stunning, it's amazing to see such close details of a powerful bird
Thanks for sharing it

Absolutely beautiful shot! I love the sharpness of it all and you really managed to capture that intense, strong look eagles have in their eyes!

BTW, is it OK if I use this picture as a reference for photoshop practice? I'll basically be using the eyedropper tool to paint a picture that (should) look like this one, to study colour, light, feathers etc. Also, provided I like the result, could I post it on DA, of course referring to this original?

Sure, please do - as long as I get to see the result afterwards! And feel free to post on DA and elsewhere as you see fit :)
