As always I love the image - but was left thinking it had a little too much space in front of the bird. It might have more impact with some slight cropping.

I always try to leave the subject 'space' to fly into rather than centralise it. It is a fine balance to get it looking right, either not enough space or too much :)

Terrific lens, what aperture do you shoot at?
Reply
:iconphotosbykev:
Photosbykev Featured By Owner Feb 13, 2007  Hobbyist Photographer
normally around f5.6/f8 without a TC on or around f8/f11 with a TC fitted to stop the images being soft

Do you use the TC with the full frame or with the 20D?

I normally shoot with the 1D MkIIN which is a x1.3 crop sensor. If I want more magnification I switch to a 20D body which has a x1.6 crop sensor. Doing this means I effectively get the effect of a TC without having to use one. But sometimes I need the focussing speed of the 1D so I use the TC

Oh I see, so it's the 1Ds that's full frame. Thanks :)

Amazing shot that shows how aerodynamic these birds really are, when perched they always look so "fluffy"!

Looks like a battering ram, haha! I like the way the body tapers back to the tail feathers, and I like the position of the wings in this shot. I like the blur of the background, too, puts all the focus onto the owl, and he certainly looks magnificent. Nice shot.

I don't know what lens you used but even if it was 600/4 with some TC you must have been pretty close to them - even with car it's for me really incredible! although some days ago I've met hawk owl and pigmy owl - I could walk to them very close ( not enough for good shots though :/ ).
Anyway - great job and great photos!
