This is a stunning photo. Not only is it perfectly framed, but the quality of the image is very well done as well. The colors are just right, the size of the image is just right, and the angle the owl is in fits the way the picture is cropped.

The only issue I see is that, if you look in the right corner of the top of the picture, the 'pixelating' effect of the image suggests that it was sharpened just a little too much. Aside from that, it's a stunning image. Looking forward to seeing more from you.
What do you think?

This is really such a perfect shot

Care to share the ISO/Speed/Aperture settings?

I guess the 1D makes such a difference! If I use anthing over 200 ISO on my 7D it is so grainy/noisy.

Can one do anything about that in processing?

The 1 Series Are Excellent For Low Noise But The 7D Should Be Ok
Well Above 200. The Main Thing Is Not To Underexpose..
Aim To Shoot As Far To The Right As You Can Without Blowing The Highlights.
If You Underexpose Then Try To Brighten The Shadows In Post You Will See Far More
Noise Than If You Expose To The Right And The Darken The Image If You Need To.
You Deal With Noise In Post Process But There Ia Always A Compromise In That To Much Noise Reduction
Will Also Kill Your Detail So You Need To Get The Balance Right.
Hope This All Makes Sense And Helps You A Little.
Drop Me A Note If You Need Further Help. :)
