The detail in the owl is very good. I hope you do not mind my being a bit critical in the way that you have blurred the background. leaving some quite sharp corners and very straight edges which make it look cut out. I think you have overworked what is probably not a pretty backdrop and it would have been better to have reduced the amount of blur applied to make it more natural. I often have similar problems with the type of shots I take and sometimes a quite dark and feathered vignette can reduce the impact of the background and not leave such harsh edges.
The rest of the presentation is nicely done. Sorry to be negative but thought you would prefer an honest comment BlushBlush

A superb capture of this beautiful owl, Lynne.
The subject sits beautifully against that wonderful background.
