A striking composition of the Short Ear Owl on the hunt. Set against a black background the intensity of the light through the trees is enhanced, for me, while the feel of darkness is extended with the owl seemingly flying right out of the image.

Wonderful. I am interested in the technical details. (I left this comment
earlier but ti seems to have disappeared.)

This is a composite of an Owl I shot at an airport, and a back ground
I found on a free website. The Owl was captured with a Nikon D7100,
manual mode Nikon 75-300mm 1/3200 F7.1 auto iso. This is one of those
images where the bg takes precedent over the main subject the owl.
Since I didn't shoot the bg, I can't take the credit for this really.
It was fun putting it together and it still looks great.

I didn't read any of the commentary before I thought to myself, this looks to be one image superimposed on another. I think that you might be more proud of your images if all the content were your own -- and by doing so you would certainly have the respect of your peers at this site.
