This image was originally photographed for Color.  The light was soft and the sky was blue.  Because of the lighting it gave great detail in the wings and feathers.  By converting the image to B/W in Lightroom, I bumped up the contrast, and brought out the shadows.  Now you can see all the feathers on this great bird.  This Eagle is in her twenties and on her second life partner, I've been following her for years.  She is gorgeous, strong, and defiant against urban growth.  That's what I wanted the image to display. This image is available in Print.  Look in the Florida Fine Art Portfolio.
