Found a whole directory of unprocessed images from the meet at the Mid-Wales Falconry Centre just prior to Xmas.

Thought this one is rather special - which translated means I like it a lot.

Thanks everyone.

Glad to see that others like this one as well. That lighting is something a bit special.

I decided to use the village as the background on a number of shots rather than the field or trees. Think it gives an environment feel to the image.

I can see why you consider this one "rather special"
It really is a top-class shot in my opinion and I'm not really into captive wildlife shots. As Pete said, the barbed wire does suggest a wild setting as does the fields and the backdrop and this really makes the shot work. On top of that, the framing is so precise with the owl looking into the frame and the fence perfectly horizontal.
...nearly forgot to mention the gorgeous light!!!
Congrats, well deserved

Thanks again.

Gonna post a portrait as my next upload. It's of an ePZ'er, but it is actually a nice image - let's hope they think so too. That'll got a few people from the BWC meet nervous Wink

Its an unfortunately cliched shot, but this doesn't harm the picture in any way - a well executed and truly stunning shot!
