    Wow! Thanks guys. Talk about stats...I had one main challenge win up until a couple challenges ago and now I have 3! It only took me ummm..gosh I don't know...6 years and 65 challenges! I've had 3 firsts in open but that doesn't count. We won't talk about my average though...I'm most of the time at the bottom of the pickle barrel. LOL!

    ...excellent image to me, I like the way that your treatment highlights all the patterns & texture of the feathers , far from your average birdshot & a TT 4 me.

    I like the subject, composition, and especially the lighting which meets the challenge perfectly. This is my favorite favorite.

    Dear friend this pic has a strange appeal...I must admit it's well executet and it has all the right elements to fit this challenge...Forgive my vote cause surely other members will rate this one more high...Perhaps it's because birds aren't my favourite subjects...However it's a great example of low key

    well done to get a nature shot in this theme. Works well with the lovely feather patterns

    this is in top two for me. toss up still. one of the best examples of low key as i understand it now. i think this excels in that you seem to have captured a feeling. an expression. even though you cant' see an eye, there is a sense the 'wise' owl is keeping an eye on you. nice going. good luck with entry. el

    in my top 5. I can feel the owl vibrating deciding to stay and fight or take off.

    Striking image. Right on theme. I can't help wanting to see just a pinch of detail in the eye.
