    Hello, Bobo, and thanks for viewing.

    Regarding the last one, as mentioned in the original post, the owls were too far and they were under a kind of shelter, hidden from light, while I was under the sun, so there was a lens glare and I had to bump the "fill light" too much, affecting the final result. I just included it to show a different kind of owl, as, despite of the bad image quality, I liked their expression a lot! They look so friendly!

    Kindest regards.

    I love that owls have their own fatial expressions between types. You have caught each well. A fun series.

    Great facial expressions, Otavio. However, I'm really missing the detail in the feathers that I think you could probably bring out using post-processing techniques. Consider starting with the dark areas and lifting them.

    I llike the portrait style shots. Very well presented.... wish I could find some owls around here. I can call in a couple of great horned owls but only after dark.
