Lovely image I also like V1 , V2 and V3 I think a bit too blurred I feel one can get away with slightly blurred if the head or face is in focus but again everyone see's something different in an image thats my opinion only.

V1 is very nice indeed!
Maybe a little bit cropping would have a bit more impact. I might would get rid of some from the right hand side because there is not much there to look at. Bring a bit more attention to your main suspect.

V2 & V3 it not my cup of tea. There is far too much movement and out-of-fosus elements in it. It's might not be that pleasent for the viewers eyes.

Otherwise to V1 well captured and composed. Very good use of DOF!
Keep it up.

V1 is a great composition Andrew, but as has already been mentioned, there must be some resemblence to the owl for it to be considered as an owl shot, unless it is submitted as abstract.
Essentially, you need to have the eyes(and face) sharp, which normally means that the rest of the body will be in focus also. The wings can have varying amounts of blur, and this often makes a shot better than if the shutter speed is so high, that it freezes the wings completely.
For the reasons I have mentioned, I dont like V2 + 3, but I will vote for V1 : )

I like V1 best but I think if you had more distance from the bird when it was in flight it might work better ^^^^^ as said above

I have to agree that V2 & 3 are just too blurry, but V1 is a cracking shot, Andy Smile

Sorry Andy but I'm not convinced by these three.
v1 looks over sharpened and needs a crop form the right
v2 & 3 are just too blurry - perhaps a shorter focal length would have worked better.

Version 1 works for me, not keen on 2 and three. But I find I learn a lot by experimenting so it`s always worth a go!
