Red face What would you do to this photo?

Hi all,

I am a *very* amateur photographer. A while back, I was lucky enough to stumble upon a bald eagle who wasn't the least bit camera shy. He let me get within 20 feet of him, so I was able to get lots of good up-close shots. Photos were taken on Vancouver Island (BC, Canada).

Sadly, the lighting on these eagle pics isn't perfect... plus the shots are hand-held, and I didn't shoot in RAW... but I still think they could be decent pics with a bit of work in Photoshop.

Anyway, my question is this: what type of edits / tweaks / crops would you do with these photos? I have Photoshop CS6 and I'm relatively familiar with graphic design, but have no real experience in photo editing. Would love to see what you photo editing gurus can do with these original JPEGs.

Below are three of the best original photos... if anyone wants to spend 2 minutes touching them up in Photoshop, I would be forever grateful! (Any general photo editing advice is welcome too.)








Thanks in advance!

Haha dude that is f*cking awesome! Thanks! Nice job (Aside from the fact that the eagle in question is proudly Canadian.... hehe). Did you increase the contrast or saturation...?

Sorry. Thought the forum would auto-resize them.

I made a similar post on another forum I frequent, and one of the members there came up with this... I think it looks fantastic!
