I think I would call this the "Smiling Ghost." He seems to have a big smile on his face. I think you did a good job of salvaging this shot. You captured him in a wonderful position - I love the semi-circle created by the wings and his head right in the center. I also like the composition with the owl on the side.

Wow! great capture, what a fantastic face, he really does look like a ghost.
Wonderful capture of such a beautiful bird Asbed!!
I love the shot even though it may not be technically perfect as you stated, you made a wise choice in posting it.
Some images are special because of what you see in them, and the story behind how you obtained it. Well done!!! TFS.
One of my favorites is of a partial albino Red-tailed Hawk that I've been trying to capture on film for two and a half years now. Even though the shot is not the greatest, it is still one of my prized photos.

It's a great capture Asbed... You got a picture of a snowy owl in flight!!!!!! I love how you positioned it in the frame. The gradated blue sky is lovely. I love the way the owl has turned his head to look at you. And... I love your story!!

Though technically not as good as your previous of the Snowy Owl, I like this frontal flight POV and the composition with the lightest part of the sky creating an artistic balance. The title suits the ghost-like appearnce of the owl in this image, which is unusual and appealing.
Thanks for sharing it,

A lovely shot - great pose and composition - having the owl to one side of the frame.

fantastica e spettacolare cattura di gufo delle nevi, un rapace notturno che mi affascina, eccellenti momento di cattura e POV dal basso per una bellissima composizione, ottima definizione, belli e naturali i colori, buon controllo del controluce.

Nice shot Asbed, I like the head-on POV and birds pose here..
We are supposed to have owls here too, but darned if I've ever seen one around.
