I like the shot, the bottom half of the owl seems to not fit the top half. The detail is just different not sure how to describe it, but the brown spots on the chest area just bothered me, since there was so much detail everywhere else. Love the eyes!

Degree of difficulty is very low for an image capture of an owl in captivity. If this owl was not confined by a leather tether, please let me know. So, you found an owl at a rehab center or zoo or menagerie and you stuck a camera in it's face. Excellent closeup, but no environment, no background, no foreground. My recommendation for improvement is that you mention the name of the hosting facility. That's the least you can do. Congratulations on your top 10 finish.

Excellent shot and great finish. I was so wanting to go visit my friends the owls up in Vermont, but I couldn't find the time. This shot is wonderful and the details throughout are first rate. I had to 'settle' for some cattle instead!
