Here is a Great Horned Owl sitting on a fence post. The sun was setting and low in the sky. This fellow posed so nice for me it turned into more than a photography moment, it turned into a bonding moment for me. This owl lived in a local barn that has since been torn down. Not sure if I will experience this again but at least I did!
Image taken in Taber, Alberta, Canada. As for editing, I duplicated this RAW image two more times so that I had 3 images with exposures of 0+1-1. These 3 images were processed through Photomatix to produce an HDR image. From there it went through Photoshop for some of my tweakings to bring out details.
