I've been playing around with background colour changes, but I can't decide which looks best.
So I put it to the vote.
Number 1 or 2.
Thanks. :rolleyes:

I’d say the first is my pick as it compliments the colors on the owl better.

Could we possibly see the original as a third option?

The colour of the owl is different, too, in each.

Not wanting to appear controversial but it's shot 2 for me as I think it separates the bird from the background and the whites look WHITE :grin:

This is it. The green background is probably the best, but I have such a lot of green in wildlife shots that I thought I'd try something different.

No
I think the green background works best. If you have already taken the time to isolate the bird for shot 1 and 2 comparison, why not try blurring the green background to give the effect of more separation.
