Shot few weeks ago. There was tall grass between me and owl so I didn't get clear shot, but the grass created very nice out of focus BG. Good amount of crop at 16x9 aspect ratio.
D2Hs, Nikon (MF) 500mm f/4 P IF ED + TC-16A
1/1600, ISO-400, f/6.3 on tripod.

Please click on the image for uncompressed view, thank you.

The best part of this image is the fantastic tone of the BG.

Ludo, I like the nice soft feel you captured in this photograph. And the background is amazing.

Beautiful flight shot, Ludo. You can se that the bird is looking for a pray to show up.

Attractive image especially considering the challenges presented to you, particularly the grass and the fact you were manually focusing this with a teleconverter attached, that's skill.

I agree!  The softness of the view through the grasses paints a beautiful picture, Ludo.  This is gorgeous! 

Print it large and frame it.  :)
