Hi Jim,

An interesting record shot, and it's nice to see the trees and the cut wood from the woodyard in the background and nicely blurred out. I'm not sure why you needed to process this as an hdr from three images, but perhaps the woods were very dark?

And talking of the woods, whatever happened to the colours of the leaves? I have posted a mod which 'corrects' the leaf colours as I see them using a hue&sat layer, and dulls down the brightness of the cut wood to the bottom right of the frame.

I find it a shame that the owl is looking out to the left rather than towards the cut wood, but given that's what you had to work with I think you were right to leave enough space on the left for him/her/it to look in to. The spacing above and below is good too.
