Another image from earlier in the year.
Not everyones taste with the OOF foreground I know, but pretty regal looking on that stone.
Thanks for all the recent comments, hope to get some more time on-line soon to catch up.

I like this one Cheryl....think it is one of my favs now :o)
This is beautiful, nicely done.
This is fantastic.
Great feel of space to this image. I think that the background colours add a lot to the subject. Sylv.
works for me...
I think this is fabulous.
The pose and slight off centre comp are spot on. The colours and blur in the fore and background are gorgeous and serve to emphasise the sharpness and detail of the owl to a great degree.
Must catch up on your work Cheryl, but life is a blur at the moment :-(((
Have you seen the thread for March ??? and we are green for go for Nov again )
Glorious shot of a majestic bird. The sharpness is a killer in the large version. Excellent.
Love This picture! Amazing detail!
Terrific colours and details.
Superb detail and colour Cheryl although the out of focus grass between the rock and the more in focus grass in front of it doesn't seem right to me (hope that makes sense)
Regal is the right word for this, I really like it.
Yep Geoff. I remember at the time I was having a migraine, so couldn't get down low enough to blur all the graa without feeling sick.
This is kind of a compromise!
Thanks Pete. I guess I should retire now
Wonderfully sharp and clear! Congrats too!
Sharp as a sharp thing from Sharpsville
Can see why Pete gave this an EC.
A well deserved EC..
Superb pin sharp detail on the bird, and beautiful colours on his feathers.
I can see what Geoff means about the focus though. It does look a bit weird, almost like the rock and owl are levitating!
Great pic....photography is all about expression and there are no rules to what you shoot looks perfect to me.
Fantastic inage, congrats on the EC
Fantastic, - pose, expression, exposure and dof.
Stunning shot throughout Cheryl.
Congrats on the EC.
Congrats on the EC Cheryl
Wow Cheryl, what can we all say?
Excellent. I love the natural setting
Kev, not sure totally about the mod on this or the barn owl. Whilst the colour adjustments look good, really not into the gaussian blur of the background. With a couple of exceptions where noise has been softened the background is as taken using a large aperture. I don't have the time or patience to select the bird as a mask and apply a blur to the image. Plus 9/10 times you can tell. Thanks for taking time to have a play though.
what a fantastic pose you captured here well done
Absolutely spot on for my taste.The kind of shot I aspire to.
another stunning shot
