    OMG. That is fantastic. Any chance to ligten up a touch using the shadow tool in PS?

    The original does have a lot more detail. I think the jpeg compression has "killed" it a little.

    Thanks for the positive comments!

    Taken at the Barn Owl Centre near Gloucester in UK. Vincent Jones who runs the centre hosts photography days where he will fly owls and other raptors specifically for photographers. On the day I went I was with just 3 other guys.
    5 hours shooting birds like this for £65.00 (a Christmas present from my wife)
