I know that well-received bird shots tend to be tack sharp. This isn't one of those. So I expect it to be unloved. But I love how his blurry wings frame his intense face.

Wow, I'm amazed at this score. While the wings were meant to be blurred, the face was not tack sharp. It was actually quite soft. I worked on it a LOT and used Topaz' SharpenAI. Holy smokes.

Lovely!

I'm not fond of the background, but golly! You can't pick when an owl will fly straight to you and look at you like that!

Well done!


Yeah, wasn't much of a choice of bg... I guess I could have darkened it out.

This! It's just amazing! The blurry wings add it, I think. It shows motion and makes his tack sharp face look even more striking!
