sedwards, beautiful shots. I wish to capture shots of a snowy like that one day.

Here are some of a Barn owl from today.

Beautiful pictures, Ryan.

+1  A rather odd looking owl depending on angle but lovely photos.

Good job you had the D500 and 200-500 at hand, we all know that kind of image is impossible with a Canon combo¹.  ::)

In all seriousness the reason I looked the camera info up was because I found the bokeh pretty busy and wondered if it was the lens or the background or simply an interaction of the two.

¹: Yes I do realize they were actually shot with the Nikon gear.
Too often we lose sight of the fact that photography is about capturing light, if we have the ability to take control of that light then we grow exponentially as photographers. More often than not the image is not about lens speed, sensor size, DR, MP's or AF, it is about the light.

Scott, I don't have the ability to just eye the photo and recognize a characteristic in the bokeh but I did wonder if there was some effects due to the LP filter absence.

Thanks for the comments, Jack and click.

Privatebydesign, the bokeh is busy. The background was busy, and at f6.3 it's not smoothing much out. The Nikon 200-500 is known to have a more distractive background compared to the sigma 150-600 as well.

Barn owls are magnificent creatures, so interesting and beautiful.

Cool pictures Ryan, even if they were with a Nikon  ;) ;D

Lift off
The babies are learning to fly.  I followed the mating pair of Ospreys for months and on this trip they were jumping up and down when the wind picked up.  They were testing their wings with short hovers in this shot.

sedwards, beautiful shots. I wish to capture shots of a snowy like that one day.

Here are some of a Barn owl from today.


Ryan
They are really great photos.  But, like the one you posted in Bird Portraits, the downloads are very noisy.  It's of interest to all of us weighing up the D500 to know what it is really like aside from its awesome AF.  Are you processing RAW files or are these jpegs from the camera? Are you not bothering to suppress noise?

Alan, although I share your interest, I think it might be a bit much to expect someone just investing a lot of money in their gear to start digging deeply for its shortcomings.  Like me with the 1DX2, there are somethings that aren't up to the 5D4 level but I prefer not to make them my focus or it tends to spoil the experience.  Just my thoughts. :)

Jack, that is unduly defensive  - it's hardly digging deep to ask about noise levels and whether those are out of camera jpegs or RAW? They are Nikon shots posted on a Canon forum to show us what the new gear can do so of course we want to know what is going on with them.

Hi Alan, Jack, Ryan.
Don’t forget the shots seen on the forum are squished as it were and not true representations of the shots until you open them in their own page!
Aside from that lots of superb shots recently, well done all. 👍

Cheers, Graham.
