Wonderful job! I would like to see the second image in black and white. The main thing I would do is adjust the composition in the second photo. Maybe have the owl in the middle of the image? When it’s at the top, you kind of have to look around for the owl’s head, which should be the main subject.
Wow! I really love these pictures, @austinvinar They look so crisp & clean and look at those yellow eyes. What an amazing Creator we serve! 🙂
There’s only one thing that I could think of. You’re so close to using the rule of thirds in the first image. The head is almost spot on on the 2 intersecting lines in the top right corner of the grid. I thought that if you cropped it just a bit to get it exactly in the right spot it would look more balanced. Also, with the second image the owl is almost in the middle, but again it’s just a tad off. If you could just centre it, then I think they’d be perfect! Amazing shots! 🙂
