    Hello, thank you for allowing me to join this group! This is my first post, so I hope I'm doing everything right. This photo was taken just after sunrise at a wonderful burrow in Southern California. The Owl family was very affectionate, something I wanted to capture in my photo. I welcome any critiques! EXIF info is:

    Canon 1DX
    100-400 lens
    ISO 500
    SS 1/2500
    f/5.6
    Taken at 400mm

    Hi Melissa welcome to the forum. Nice image a little on the warm side, would like to see more at the bottom and not so much room on the right, maybe a 2X3 crop ratio.
    Looking forward to seeing more.

    Much better, still would like to see a bit more at the bottom of the frame if you have it.

    Thanks Tim

    Thanks! No, I was literally on my stomach taking the photo so the ground level was what it is in the photo. You were so right about too much warmth - I like the corrected one so much better!

    That's a powerfully sweet photograph. Congratulations on your POV and the warm storytelling. I agree with Tim about the crop. I would want to end up with the birds larger in the frame, but that's a personal like. I'm very glad to see your work.

    Thank you Jim! I had "rule of thirds" drummed into me, so I try to crop showing that. I do, however, understand what you mean and don't disagree.
