an attractive upload with great details even though it is standing on something unnatural,if not for your note my guess would have been a mound of dirty snow.Tfs. Bob
One of my favorite bird is Snowy Owl :)
I made some changes in my workshop just show you another way to show this beauty.
I hope you like it :)

Hey Rick, :)
Man are you serious, that's it I'm packing my bags and moving! What an Excellent subject to happen upon. Well done, Love the details in her feet (yes I have a thing for bird feet...course you would never know it with as many as I chop off in my pics! lmbo) Great POV and the lighting was working for you as well. Great job on the crop as well, interesting notes. Awesome as always, you're a superstar in my book! Have a wonderful day. :)

You have shared a picture of a very nice owl. I like soft colour palette of the picture. It suits to pictured hero very well. Despite some art softness the details of the bird are great as well as the reproduction of the owl feathers. Elegant picture. My compliments and TFS.
U2 AB boys are keeping me hoppin' eh!
I feel the owl - because of its stature - can benefit from a more portrait like presentation. At the same time some colour saturation will help in bringing out the beauty of this bird...
Tfs and letting me play with white owl on back tar! Jay

Wonderful capture of this Snowy Owl. Of course we do not have these here. He looks so soft and, well, snowy. The colors are soft and pretty and the details are wonderful.

A beautiful picture, Rick.
The bird assesses you cooly with those slit-like eyes, standing tall and dignified.
Those markings on its white plumage look very attractive.
Since I know nothing about this species of owls, your note gives a balanced information about it to my great advantage.
Thanks and take care.

Hola Rick.- Exelente foto de este Buho. Su plumaje muy bello y con una gran nitidez. El fondo le da un realce especial. La pose muy buena tambien.

Oh man! You just happened upon a snowy Owl posing for you.... : P
The exposure looks good. I might have been tempted to clone out that distracting bit along the left side. I think a touch of sharpening just prior to upload would make this even better... if that were possible.

There is no doubt that this bird is looking straight at you :) This must have been an impressive encounter again. I have never seen one of them in real... The white and details stand out very well and I like this composition. What nice feet he has :-) Thanks,

A beautiful fellow!
We can see how well protected against the cold he is with feathers all over...
A fine exposure of the white bird, great details in the plumage!
