Rainbow Flight by Photosbykev Rainbow Flight by Photosbykev
Sometimes bad weather is a real blessing :)

processed on a netbook so not sure if the colour is accurate

Edit: thanks for the feedback on the colour, I'll reprocess the file when I get it onto my main computer.

Edit2: reprocessed closer to the correct colour :)

Moved to scraps and replaced by a print version

Love the sunny feeling on the owl. And the brighter sky compared to the other version with heavier sky and less color.

What is this guy doing flying around during the day? :XD:

Beautiful shot! Lovely composition. I love how the post he's landing on almost looks like a cross. It really gives the entire scene a great depth that really makes you think and try to interpret the photo.

Much better with the adjustment. I assume this is a captive bird? Or were you actually lucky enough to find one of the few (just one pair I believe) wild European Eagles Owls in the UK?

Captive bird called Kaln from the Barn Owl Centre in Gloucester. He is the perfect model :)

looks like golden hour, myself i know it's tough to get colours right on a notebook, but on your image they seem ok, as sun must be rather low for a rainbow to appear. hard to get rainbow and a nice view in one shot, you managed

That's a beautiful bird!
The color is toward the "golden" side, if that is what you wanted to know, and you are right, I am working on a notebook, and it is sometimes hard to tell on the color.
