This is such a stand out shot!
The color of the background is awesome and compared with the color of the owls feathers, it adds some originality. The little spots of grey mixed in with the black is great.
Great timing with the open mouth.
I like the angle of the photo and I really like how the owl isn't looking up or at the camera. Most photos I see of birds, they are looking up or at the camera. It's very cool how you captured somthing totally different.
As always, your photos are very clear and crisp. :D
You captured the texture and color of the feathers perfectly.
What do you think?

The background colour works really well at making the eye focus on the details of the owl's plumage. Great capture :)

What a gorgeous barn owl!! The coloring is astonishing! The angle and the position of the head is superb. Love the slight chiaroscuro with the dark background and the shadowy areas it high lights the color of the feathers perfectly!!
