This is one from 2018 that I hadn't processed. It was a tad soft so it's been sitting there waiting for a time when I had nothing better to do. Like while under quarantine...

I really love these birds.

The bird looks sharp enough and the softness around it suits the image very well Dan. Also lovely light and composition.
Thanks, Binnur. Yes the lighting worked on this one. At this resolution it's plenty sharp.
So beautiful. Well done.
Thanks, Bill.
Soft??? Looks good to me. Terrific capture.
Thanks, Allan. Soft is a relative thing. There's not enough feather detail on the face to print it large. As opposed to the same bird a few frames closer(previously posted) which I print in large format on metal and is tack sharp.

I never tire of looking at these birds. Well caught!
Thanks, Nick. I absolutely love them. Fun to shoot too. They seem to habituate to your presence pretty quickly and just ignore you. Which makes it a lot easier.
Lovely! I'd trade you several shots from Africa for ONE great snowy image! LOL!
Thanks, Karen. Canada is a lot shorter flight than Africa. Though what you save on airfare you have to spend on down filled nickers and packs of hand warmer.

I've got all the gear for very cold weather. I maxed out when I was getting ready for Iceland in February! LOL! I feared I would freeze to death! :eek: Glenn Nagel kept telling me Iceland was warmer than Chicago! But I bought boxes of warmers anyway!

Didn't intend to say it was not a good image. But everything is relative. When coming back from a trip when I've done a lot of shooting I tend to pull out the images that I can process straight in LR. Which pretty much means they have to be sharp SOOC. The ones that need additional processing have to wait until I have the time. Like now...
You've done a terrific job with an owl I hope for every year will return to this area.
Thanks, Louie. I wish they'd visit you every year.
Beautiful capture, Dan!
Thanks, Dossy.
