due to the captive nature of this barn owl i had to cut it out of the original image and paste it onto another background. this is how i would have liked the original to have been. but in the real world nothing is that simple.

Nice job Sue - at first glance it's hard to see the cut and paste.. Nice pose and the catchlights in the eyes are good..

Hi sue
Thats a nice job u've done here
From the thumbnail i thought it must be shot with some 400mm or 600mm Canon's Big Glass :)
The soft B/g (altered) made this one stands out!

I wonder where is the other toe ?? :D


Beautiful capture Sue

hi sue
excellent shot,the detail is great yet it looks so soft maybe its the blurred orange b/g,well done.

Hello Sue,

Who could resist this!
Barn owls have the most appealing, round faces and this one, coyly tilted to one side, is gorgeous.
Your focus is pin sharp capturing the details of the plummage perfectly. The catchlight adds to its character.
Nice, diagonal perch and good dof.

Kind regards,
Bev :-)

Hi Sue,

The owl's pose is perfect. You've done a remarkable cut and paste job, it's very difficult to spot. Very sharp, I love the details.
