well done Lillian regards the separation from bg etc - personally woul dhave been tempted with -ve EC but then again i tend to prefer marginally darker images

nevertheless i shall direct other victims of my critique to this as an example of how to do it...

So crisp and sharp, the plumage of this juvenile so beautifully captured, Lillian: exposure looks spot on and the b/g works for me just as it is, not needing any changes IMHO.

You would have had a good laugh had you seen the Big O sinking into the marshy ground beside Woorgreens Lake on Tuesday morning and ending up getting his feet and ankles soaking wet! Gary had the sense to wear wellingtons and I had the good sense to avoid the boggiest areas so my feet remained relatively dry

Fantastic Lillian, luv it, the backgroud colour works so well with the owl and very sharp and great use of dof. the catchlights in the eyes are awesome.
Well done i think you deserve my carper award, bearing in mind, your description and exif data.
