    A friend of mine has some young owls in a tree on her property. She let me take pictures. Do you like the portrait or the landscape version? The red bit to the right of the owl's feet is something it was eating for lunch. The owl had its back to the sun. I tried to bracket the exposures using aperature priority. These are the best ones.

    Thanks, Susan

    I am not a pro, and I have a lot to learn yet.... But I think I prefer the Landscape...

    I would crop it a little on the right ( landscapes shot) to take the owl out of the center a little. tho im still a noob.

    That's a good suggestion. I would add that as you crop you will want to keep an eye above the owl. Keeping the same aspect ration will bring that edge in to the top of the owl pretty quick.

    I like the landscape too, the trees frame the owl. If you have a speedlight, some fill flash would have helped balance the lighting and added some catch lights into the dark eyes.
