Super shot, David, capturing that penetrating gaze and with excellent detail over the whole bird.

Great shot Dave. I love these owls; they have so much character wrapped up in such a small bird.

It's a fine detailed image David - it does have a slight blue cast though. I think you could reduce the blue channel a little to bring the brown back into the Owls plumage.

Its a white balance issue. Best to use the colour balance tool, and on the blue/yellow slider, side it towards yellow for a value of -21. That sorts it out. Ive tried this using ACR, thats whee the value comes from.

let me know if it works for you.

A fine shot overall.



regards



Willie
