Ancora un grande lavoro, Jim. Hai saputo cogliere l'attimo. E la successiva rielaborazione rende questo scatto un capolavoro. Foto non facile e ancora una volta perfettamente riuscita. Veramente bravo

Thank you Jim, You've got it in a rare natural light setup and it looks great. The one and only claw in this picture foretells what the sort of night is ahead ! :D

Jim, this little "baby" owl is wonderful...I saw ( again )him (ou her )on May,23 and I am thinking about the life. It is gratifying to know that this owl is growing and becoming so beautiful and special.: )Great photo!

I thought you used flash, too. Very nice natural light. Great photo.

Christine, I'd be glad to send you a jpeg if you'll send your e-mail address to me through NPOD :-)

You've seen this owl and its sibling (May 23rd) when it was younger and smaller. I took this the evening before it fledged the nest.

No Flash, Ali. I shot this at sunset just as a shaft of light came through the branches. I had been watching these owls for two months. I deliberately underexposed it, then I selectively increased the highlights in Lightroom and boosted the contrast overall. Thanks to you and Christine for your kind comments.
Ali from Tehran about 8years ago said:
Wow amazing subject and better photography! Jim: have you used any flash for this scene?
Christine from Australia about 8years ago said:
One of the best I have seen. The colour, the expression on the owl's face...everything...perfect. Could I please "borrow" the owl for one of my slide shows? :)
