Eagle eye!



I spotted this pair a couple of days ago and shot a couple pictures before the male flew off leaving the female to keep an eye on me while I took a few more shots.

  1. I really, really hate you! LOL

    These are great shots! The eyes are perfectly in focus. Were these taken with the Sigma? Settings please??

    1. Let's see... Sigma 120-400 handheld at 400mm, f8, spot metering.

      In Photoshop I adjusted "Levels"(I usually select "auto"), "Shadows/Highlights" (mostly shadow recovery), some cropping and finally "Unsharp Mask" at (Amount 150 / Radius 1.5) and then I went back and sharpened up the eyes some more almost to the point of being grainy but not quite.
