great head shot Sam!

if you want to bring out more detail in white subjects, like the eagle's white head, turn your camera's dial to "P" then on the top of the ring is a +/- setting, hit that and spin the dial into the - area, this will dull the overall image, but bring more detail out in the normally bright white areas. I generally start with - 2/3 on the dial, and darken or brighten from there.

Just remember to reset the dial to 0 when you are finished or the next set of photos might be to dark! I have been caught with dark images many times for forgetting myself.
hope this helps

Yeah, I have to experiment with the settings. I will try that tomorrow. I am in Cape Freels tonight. am realizing photography takes time. I get frustrated too easily. Talk tomorrow. Sam./
