I'm sure I don't want my cat meeting him on a dark night. He's gorgeous! Looks like there's a bit of motion blur that you tried to fix with sharpening, but the rest is great.

Nice owl portrait. These guys have cat's eyes kind of don't they?

Perhaps just a bit too bright and my eyes keep getting pulled to the background by the vertical lines. I like the eyes the best.

This looks like it was over-sharpened to try to rescue a picture that wasn't sharp.
