Im usually not lucky enough to see Owls, so it was nice to see this Great Horned Owl earlier this summer. Canon 5DIII + 500mm f4 MkI + 1.4x TC.

Very nice. I'm on the lookout for these all the time. Can't wait to see one close enough to get a photo.

It's a beautiful shot I love the branch he is on, (my opinion) if he weren't so centered in the frame it would a stronger photo to me in the fine art sense. I do love the image though, I don't have much luck with wildlife. I do have days when luck is on my side.

Rob, Morris, Steve, Ken, Den,

Thanks for the look and kind words.

Erikca,

if he weren't so centered in the frame it would a stronger photo to me in the fine art sense.

Thanks for the comment. This was about a 50% crop, so I had plenty of room to move him around, since he was looking straight at me I choose a more centered crop.

Shreeni thanks!

I agree -- with the straight-on pose and the bird positioned so vertically, I think your framing choice was the correct one.

However, I think the image is way too dark. You could open it up substantially with a combination of a Curves adjustment, S/H adjustment and some dodging about the head and eyes.

Still, a great capture of a gorgeous bird!

Eric, Tim,

Thanks.

John,

I think the image is way too dark

I did minimal PP on this, I'll have to play with some addiitonal PP to see how it looks.

Kenny, codroy, Ron, David,

Thanks for the look and comments.
