[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
It is one of my favorite bird. The background you are seeing here is not the natural one, but the result of post processing. The background was cluttered with leaves & washed out sky on the top. So to get a plain background, I selected the green color from the leaf & painted on the background carefully using a brush, then used the magic wand to select the background color & did a guassian blur. Hope you'll like it.

Hi Sharma
Great shot with very nice BG and perfect exposure and sharpness on this lovely owl. Maybe a bit too much empty space above, but not really a problem
