Nice image with the owls clearly visible and the tree acting as a leading line. The feathers are clear (even though the fuzz is not really true feathers it represents the youngster actual "pelt" for want of a better term. Those claws are impressive and the top one is hanging on for his life. The one eye you have is sharp.   Posted: 05/10/2020 13:06:37

Good eye for these camouflaged raptors and great capture. I would suggest minimal post-processing to add a little vibrance or color to this image.   Posted: 05/10/2020 13:22:08

Good capture, with great detail in the feathers. Exposure and depth of field also looks good. As well as Sue's comments I would do a small amount of cropping to the image to help the owls move forward in the image.   Posted: 05/19/2020 02:21:41

Generally, very nice photo. Even though the tree was leaning to the right, you might consider rotating the photo counter clockwise until the left edge of the tree is vertical, and then crop a bight tighter. You'll be surprised at the difference.   Posted: 05/26/2020 16:42:04
