great detailed capture of the bird and really like the inclusion of the foreground. If i was to be ultra picky i'd say it might look better with an even further diffused background to blur the greens and browns further. But a top shot Smile

Super sharp eyes in this - looks to need warming up a little though on my monitor. A lot of blue in this image.!

Taken at f/4 Lee, main issue was that the foreground grass was not long enough (as was being grazed by sheep today whilst we were using the field!). The background was not as far away as would like, but the owl kept heading towards the spikey grass (which is the background).

Will take a look at some of the others, as we moved the owl about looking for some better angles, so one shot may have worked better than another.

Shot was taken in the shade, so light was cooler. I could warm up future ones when I look at them, but left as shot, which was on cloudy WB, so you can see just how blue the shade was.

It's your choice Cheryl but I would prefer not to see blue in the plumage.Smile

Sorry Brian, was very tired last night and re-reading my post I need to clarify I was sort of agreeing with you. It is as shot with the WB on something that should have warmed the image naturally, so it shows that the shade light was very cool, but I was also trying to say on future uploads from the session I'll take a look at warming them up Grin

And if you think this looks blue you should see the merlin shots straight from camera, had to check I'd not used the wrong WB they were so blue!

Thanks all.

No problem Cheryl - I got the gist of what you were saying.

Merlin's already have blue in their plumage so I can picture how they must look. I expect they will look fine when you post them warmed up.Smile
