The Stare Down by Behrfeet The Stare Down by Behrfeet
Early in the afternoon we headed off to the marsh at the head of the lake where I live. On the way there I decided to take a detour and we came across an old barn complete with a Great-Horned Owl in the loft opening

Now, THAT's a sure fave! That is such a gorgeous image! The only thing I'd perhaps try is cropping it a bit closer, so that the owl is a little bigger. How you captured the light in its eye is incredible!

I thought the same thing and tried several different crops ..... I even had my special lady in on the decision and we both thought that even though the owl was more prominent, cropping it down really lost the cool aspect of where it was in that opening. I think the difference would be having a cool close-up of just an owl or a more artistic shot of an owl. Both being more artistic we went with that. Of course it's never right or wrong .... it's personal preference :]

Hmm, I understand. Often I have also tried to crop a picture, but found out that it really didn't work. Sometimes you just need the environment around it. Whatever, it is really a great shot!

This owl has his eye on you.

It did! For sure! It heard me creeping up the loft steps and was keeping a close eye on me but didn't move till my lady tried to sneak around the outside and get a shot .... then it was off!
