    An incredibly technical shot. Bravo. Exposure? Check. DOF? Check. Focus? Check. Shutter speed? Check.

    DING.

    I am impressed.

    pointed the camera and held the shutter button down, took about 10 shots and this one was the best

    In what way is it unconventional?

    My comment was meant to be a congratulatory one :)

    If you draw a vertical line in the middle of the photo, you'll see that the owl is past that line –and heading out of the image. In my mind, that's usually a no-no. However, since you caught the owl looking down, you made this composition work beautifully –thus my comment about it being unconventional. (Hope this makes some sense; English is only my second language and sometimes it's not easy for me to convey the right idea.)

    Great shot LP.
    The blue sky and the tree add nicely.

    to me its a very conventional shot, the bird is on a third, well the tip of the wing is, the tree is also on a third and the bird is looking into the bigger empty space. but maybe its just because I look at more 'wildlife within a landscape' style of shots than the 'fill the frame' style that its more conventional than unconventional to me :lol:
