Description

Quite a lot of work avoiding the background to be all red and triyng to enhance the shape of the eagle.
An Eos clip CLS is mounted in front of the Astrodon modified Cmos of the eos 400d, therefore, the images needs to be up to 600sec to receive enough light. 300sec unitary poses would have been sufficient if my night sky was a bit darker...
