Had a barred owl visit yesterday evening to squirrel hunt. Should have used a higher ISO as quite a few shots weren't perfectly sharp.
5DMKIV, ISO 1600, f 7.1, 1/100 sec, 600II + 1.4X III on monopod.View attachment 188890

Love it. HIis twin was just out here - lemme go find it.

Did you know owls can't move their eyes? That's why they have such great neck rotation. No kidding.

I guess this thread is not about image processing, but I've been playing with tone mapping some single exposure files and wanted this group's opinion. How's this version?

I am not a PP expert but I find the original one more natural although I would up the exposure in it just a little anyway. But congratulations for the photos anyway.
