really, you have taken this shot beautifully i really want to vote it. why you have sent it to the critique gallery?

1. your subject is at the center of the frame but it is looking good.

2. a little cropping could give benefit.

Excellent capture, maybe a bit too central. Did a mod where I cropped the RH side and extended the canvas on the LH side, cloning the wall in.

Hope you like it.

Nice shot of a Barn Owl and technique good. OK, relatively easy with semi tame captive bird but does loo good.

Very sharp as it should be.

The exposure, pose and expression of the bird are excellent. However the composition can be improved immensely by applying a vertical (portrait) crop. I would never use a square composition unless it was the only way to accommodate the subject and make a good composition. That's not the case here; there's a lot of room around the subject and the crop shown in my mod has taken nothing vital away, but it has improved the composition.

As people have said about photos.
You need to view and look to see if it looks like a book.
If the image is view left to right like a book and you fill thirds with a suject or focal point.
Then you get a pleaseing image...
You photos do look sharp clear and full of detail.
Some time breaking rules make a photo...
May be this is why you have somay people view this great image...
