Compo is very good; good close up.
Bit of softness around the beak though ...a pity.

Ohh...it's so cute!!!
Look at those big black eyes and the great contrast they make with those fluffy white feathers!
Excellent shot, Karan!
The lighting is excellent here and also the metering is great.
Very nice POV and composition, too.
Bravo and TFS
thats a jolly shot of this creature...i would like to see some catchlights...a white hanky does the job..not flash of course
and i bet it could go sharper...although its the eyes that are more important...so if they are sharp then its more dof you may need to introduce..
brilliant close up

Light and foucus suboptimal. Cropping might also have been a tad less tight.

This extreme closeup shot is good. I can see good details of the face. Agree with annick, the beak is a little soft, or it would have been a perfect picture.

this is a great portrait shot from the Eagle owl. I like it very much. Great sharpness, details and very nice colours. This is a great composition. Thank you for posting.

This is soooo close again! I like this centered compo and I think that details are OK (but they could be a little sharper). Good natural colors and interesting notes. Well done :-)

I like this fluffy heart shaped face a lot :) Nice shot, a bit too close though, but it is still great picture.

Another fine shot Karan, this time with good eye contact. Is this a close crop or the original composition. Again good detail in the pens. Iv never seen the Barn Owl, Id love to see any kind of Owl when I'm out hiking. Well done.
