nice animal portrait. I like how the owl is peering over its shoulder like a model might strike a pose. the shot is lacking in contrast, though. It would have more punch if you darkened the dark values and brightened the highlights.

There is a color cast and it could use some sharpening, but otherwise a great photo; good composition, nicely blurred background, and a wonderful pose.

I think this could benefit from auto levels and a crop of the face with some of the neck.

Great shot, but really needs a little boost in the black-point (to make the darks darker).

The eyes are compelling but the colors seem a little washed out.

Nice warm tones, good exposure, and seems fairly sharp with some texture on the feathers. The colors are a little muted and it blends into the background a little, but the eyes are nicely vibrant.
