Thank you Jeff, and thank you for your input and suggestions Wayne. I did lighten the eyes and played around several times with different adjustments in lightroom. This is my first time editing an image in over 9 months and I am still struggling with the software. I do concur with you on the eyes without a doubt. I made several variations with varying contrast, and settings etc, but I chose this one as I liked it and it spoke to me the most.

I captured many body shots of this owl that I could have used, but I took the liberty of challenging myself by looking at the subject and photo in a new perspective, hence this close-up of the eyes. I shoot all of my work handheld and because this owl was incredibly close when we surprised eachother, I had to rely on the gear I have, and the skills I developed last year to the best of my ability.
