Hi Adam.
You have pictured a very cute owl. Its look is great and I like crisp sharp image of it. Absolutely smooth dark green BG is amazing too. My best wishes.

Hi adam,

superb portrait of this owl. Excellent clarity on the head showing off those intense eyes. Perfect DOF with a very pleasant BG.
