There looks like there has been some jiggery pokery here... you may need to work on your PS skills, did you cut out the owl and added in the background, looks like the owl was attached to a strap as well and it hasn't been removed properly ? However.... that said - beautiful owl and PS skills take a while to master, do keep practicing... I am learning something new every day. Kindest Regards Jude

given the camera, i think the image is a little pixelated which, if it had not been for the comment above, would have led me to think that the subject had been cropped from a much larger image.

so, given the ISO is easily within the workable range of the camera, has the image been perhaps compressed too much from the original to web friendly?


otherwise, i would personally be interested to hear / learn regards your use of positive exposure compensation here please. also, are you using either 'all-points' or centre-point focusing? the former allows the camera to pick a point which rarely works , whereas the latter means you get a very centralised subject and as such not neccessarily the best composition.

if you are already aware then i apologise, but if not take a look at 'rule of thirds' regards composition - i can send you some destructions if you wish as i recently wrote a 'how to' for our local club

also are you using continuous shooting or single / AI Servo or One Shot ?


don't get me wrong, certainly not a terrible attempt but one i think that we can perhaps help you to improve upon next time

hi phil, yes i have to be honest that it was cropped, that was due to fact when i went to muncaster castle i never took my 100-400 lens with me, and had to settle for my 24-105, i also shot with centre weighted and yes A1 servo, as i do for most flying images, i never use the iS function. i would always be grateful of any advice you can give me as im always willing to learn............regards........Alan

"What can be said that has already been said?" Still very much worthy of my humble vote, in all honest I would be somewhat chuffed if I had caught even the **** end of one of these delightful birds.
