About the Image(s)

My owl friend this time give me perfect posing in a perfect location, as it is a nature photo, I didn't do lot of work on it in post processing, only basic adjustments in light room, and I made some eye sharpening and amber edge in photoshop.
my EXIF as following :
Nikon D 850
I used image area as crop 1.5 to earn some more distance Nikkor 200-500 @ 500 = 700 mm in crop mode
F/8 shutter 1/1250

Waiting for your opinions and suggestions.

My opinion? .... stunning.
Love the DOF, sharp eyes and placement of the subject in the frame. I can detect a slight bit of noise on the feathers, if I really look hard for something to improve.

Congratulations Abdo, a beautiful image that you can be proud of.   Posted: 10/02/2020 02:46:19

Oh, I see. Thanks for explaining that. As you can see, the technical side of photography is not my strong point.
Well, in my opinion, your owl is competition ready! Congratulations.   Posted: 10/03/2020 02:12:45

This is fantastic. What a beautiful image. Love the background colors or orange and purple.

I also like that this image can be further cropped in several ways as required (by competition or publication) since you have a lot of space to work with. If you wanted to cut out that rock in the foreground you could make it landscape or square format as well and I think it would still be very successful.

Any other critiques are just nitpicking. This is great.   Posted: 10/04/2020 17:05:56

Really beautiful. I might lighten the eyes just a touch, but it is perfect!   Posted: 10/05/2020 17:41:51
