Wonderful shot Mya. You have done well to keep some detail in the all white plumage of the bird.GrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrin

Brilliant capture. I echo Ron's comments. She's a beauty.

With the Mod, all I've done is a few minor tweaks in 'Contrast' and 'Lighting' (as I felt the image was slightly 'flat'). I also gave it a bit of sharpening.

I turned my attention to the beak - with your image, I thought perhaps the black beak had been lost in the mouth's shadows - by using the 'dodge' tool on low I was hoping to bring it out...................I'm not sure if it has worked or not! Hopefully someone with a greater ability then mine will have a go and describe what I should have done! Smile

The image as a whole is brilliantly timed, it's nice to see an owl doing something (other then staring into the camera!). Smile

Hi Karen
Thanks for the mod. I think the detail on the beak has been greatly improved! I thought the owl was just staring into the camera as they normally do until I looked at it later on and realized that it was yawning!!Grin
