    I shot this owl using a Sony DSC-P100 in manual mode. ISO 100 at f 5.8. Cropping and a 15% unsharp mask in photoshop was done along with the framing.

    The frame is too much. It intrudes into the picture - especially the white corner bits.
    Always keep things simple.
    It's a nice shot of the owl - but there is far too much space to the right of it and too the bottom.
    This space does nothing for the picture except make everything look off balance.
    The way you have composed it, the log the owl is perched on becomes as important as the owl.
    Try cropping right down.

    I have to agree with hertz again, loose the frame. If you can take it again, get a nice closeup of the bird, the more detail of the plumage the better I always say.
