Thank you all for your comments!
Pappy - I was maybee little bit closer than 30 feet. That photographer said that ususally they fly away when you come closer than 100-150 feet, so it's very unusual. :-)

What an exciting story and photo! Maybe he was as curious about you as you were about him?
I was going to try and sharpen this a bit for you using unsharp in PS but did not dare to save your file as it is not a jpeg...

Very nice and expecially as it is out in the wild and not in a zoo !

Hmm, what kind of file than is it? :?: I really think it should be jpeg (or atleast jpg, which basically is the same). Maybee try again, because I would love to see how my picture looks afres some PS editing :-)

The pic is definitely soft and needs some USM and brightness/contrast.

Ceramby, I truly like your #1 owl photo. The owl is in wonderful pose as only am owl can do....but DynamoHum does have a point regarding brightness, contrast and sharpening. I've taken the liberty to do just that with your picture to illustrate the point. I don't pretend to be as good at it as DynamoHum, and perhaps he will grace us with his corrected rendition, but for whatever it's worth here is my attempt at it.

In a way, I can totally understand your point of view. It boils down to this " One hundred people giving their opinion = one hundred different opinions." There are many ways at looking at the same subject and we all see differently. That's what I enjoy the most about posting pictures in this forum and getting feedback form the other participants. In the final analysis, Ceramby as the creator and owner of the picture has the final judgment, and that's the way it should be. "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder"

Hiroshi you are 100% rightand so am I.:G:G

Well, it's just that owls are connected with ghostly things that it seemed to me that a soft picture might reflect this better.

Happy shooting and happier posting.:-)

Hiroshi - your sharpening of the owl is great, but could it have been done without also sharpening the background? Might you have been able to select just the owl's outline and done the sharpening within it? Best of both worlds!:-) Tom
