Great shot, Andrew. Wonderful detail in the feathers. Hope you're enjoying (and drooling) over your D3 as much as I am over my D700 ;-))

Really beautiful, and I don't usually think of Barn Owls as beautiful. Detail is perfect and background is softly complementary.

A nice static shot of an owl, but not much more in my eyes.

Wow, really amazing. The shape of the feathers around its eye and the contrast between the eye and surrounding area really draw you in.

Nice detail on the owl's eye-area feathers, your image might benefit from a warming filter in post-processing.
