Hello users of the Camera Labs forum. Basically I got the idea of other peoples definitive threads, so I took some pictures of the owls which my friends have and were friendly enough to let me take some pictures. So if you have any interesting and pretty owl pictures, you are more than welcome to come and post in this thread. I would have took more pictures, but the owls are so incooperative when someone wants to photograph them. =)

All the pictures were taken from a Panasonic Lumic DMC-FZ38 camera, and all of the pictures are PP-ed.

I like owl's pose in #3 but the backround on this (and other photos) is blown out and it has weird length/width ratio. When cropping, lock your ratio, or go square.

cool owls,but too overexposed or too much contrast...a lot of details just vanished. and the 2nd photo looks like you didn't had enough shutter speed.

a tip: try not to shoot a subject in the shade with an "radioactive" background,because you cannot repair that photo. shoot in the shade & with a background in the shade or shoot in the sunlight,with the background in the sunlight as well. shooting in the sunlight is a bad thing to start with,but I wanted to point out how to take control over your exposure.
