Rework of an earlier shot and now in large size.

This is the same barn owl that can be seen sitting in a 'window' in my portfolio, just to proves he's not stuffed Smile

Lovely picture, the owl stands out really well from that dark background. This one could hang on a wall!

Cheers,

Well at least you're consistent Pete Smile

Got a HC in it's earlier days as well. I was working on the image because someone wanted to buy it from my website.

Now not everyone will know this (although people who remember it from last time may recall). I actually clipped the very top part of the left wing. So this is reconstructed. Last time I spent ages doing it, but yesterday about a minute and I thought the result was better.

So should really have been in Digitally Manipulated but I wanted to see if anyone noticed.

I must admit that I would not have noticed. LOL - Well, it's not a drop shot, but I like the perfect pose and light on the wings.

Thanks everyone. Greg my mood is fine, though I have a bit of a downer on Yanks Smile)

Things are looking positive on the job front, just need the R word to be confirmed and then I can start afresh. Probably better off and a more fulfilling career!

Really thanks to everyone who has offered support and guidance.

I have a few meetings this week and next, an accountant, some contracting friends, business link, etc. So might not be around too much.
