GreatHorned Owl on Barn Owl Box

Critique Style Requested: Standard

The photographer is looking for generalized feedback about the aesthetic and technical qualities of their image.


This July shortly after our Barn owls had fledged and disbursed, this Great Horned owl showed up for a few days and I caught it perched on the Barn owl box very early one morning. Knowing that owls will usually be very still and tired of having noisy owl photos from keeping the iso up, I kept it down for this one and went with a relatively long exposure for bird photography and was pleased with the results.
