I have no skin in the game for today’s “big game”. I might, or might not watch it for the play or the commercials. I’d rather watch birds to be honest, and owls are my very favorite bird. Therefore, here is my contribution to the #Superb_Owl meme on @Twitter.
This particular owl is a burrowing owl (Athene cunicularia) that I photographed a few years ago and have gone back to as part of an experiment to look at older images and reprocess them from raw with modern approaches. The original post with other images is here. It could be that raw processing algorithms have changed over the past 8 years (they certainly have), or I am seeing images a little differently than I was then (also likely true). Whatever the reason, the images come through differently, for the better.
