Terrific capture Fred. The fact that it is looking straight into the camera enhances the portrait. Well done.

What a beautiful Owl,

It is in my list of birds to shoot one day, it is a wild Owl?

FredS - beautiful image, I know how you feel about zoos. On the bright side often times they have animals that aren't able to survive in the wild, hopefully this is the case with this beautiful bird.

Fred, this is such a good portrait of a beautiful creature and the stance shows how difficult it might be to see the owl if in the wild.

It is a wonderful image; the expression and background contrast for both color and texture is perfect for this.

At least zoos are getting a little better in that regard. I still know what you mean.

In any case that's a great shot.

Beautiful creature. On the screen I am viewing, it almost looks like a line drawing it is so sharpened. Did you use any kind of special affects in shooting or processing?

I am not sure
this guy did not seem to fly away as I approached him for a few pictures
Possibly born in captivity, so he cannot be released.

I get this in some of my posted pictures , which I do not understand
All my EPL-5 setting are 0 ( contrast and sharp )
I am a jpg shooter . I do not see this in the SOOC jpgs
After some adjustments in Elements 8 , Fill light etc, resize ( High Quality ) for posting
the line you mentioned shows up ( sometimes )

does your software or the site hosting you use apply more sharpening when you upload? the shot looks okay to me, but if it looks different than what you see on your end that might be the answer.

Beautiful shot for sure but to me it looks a tad oversharpened.
