Hello.
Wonderful image you have. Congrads. Here are some thoughts as requested. I believe the bottom 20% of image shows lots of lost image 'real estate' . I'd try a wider ratio crop like in the example attached. Although it may be hard to evaluate, maybe the horizon is not perfectly level and there might also be a slight pincushion distortion from the lens.
Hope you find my comments constructive.
Cheers.

Thank you Paul. It's nice to know what they are. Interesting that they would be unrelated.

Andrew, this is not a Great Grey Owl, it is in fact a Great Horned Owl. Good find.

Those look to be <i>Nerodia sipedon</i> or Northern Watersnakes.

The two small ones are probably a couple of years old (at least) and unrelated to the adult.

I am lucky to have my jumping spiders in focus at all, they are so small and usually moving very fast.

I see you used a 500mm lens, were you also using extension tubes - maybe 32mm?
