Backlit Barny ...

Backlit Barny ...Going to stick my head above the parapet here and go against everyone else :Čo

The exposure is very well handled (though the primaries are blown out) but apart from that there is very little creative input to lift it above a captive barn owl on a post.

Asking the falconer to move the jesses to hang at the rear would lift it a bit, turning the owl completely around for a back view would hide the jesses altogether. A simple clicking noise can make the owl look over its shoulder and without the jesses, it becomes a much more credible shot though it would never pass for wild as the primaries are shot. Typical of a falconers bird - the feathers get damaged in the aviaries.

Sorry to sound harsh
