Wow, this is a great photo! I'm not a pro at photography and I will not pretend to be, but I will give a shot at critiquing this :)
First of all, it is genius that the background is blurred. Because of this, the viewer is forced to pay attention to the bird, which is the action of the photo. With this done, the owl is more noticeable and stands out more. Also, the pose in which the owl is captured is wonderful. That is one thing that photography is all about, capturing moments before they are gone, capturing things while they are still in motion. You've done this splendidly. Here you've either captured the owl mid-flight, just before it's about to really spread its wings and take off, or you've captured it as it's about to land. I'm betting it's the later, but either way it looks great in the air. Another thing, that sunlight on its feathers looks lovely. Because of it, the wings look somewhat transparent and we can see the true beauty of the owl. All of these things in the photo go together to make a truly great photograph. Great, great photo! :)

I don't know if you've managed to keep track of all the comments, but I asked other members of the Gothenburg Ornithological Society where I'm on the board, and they all agreed that it's indeed a Long-eared Owl.

I'd say Long-eared Owl [link]

There has been discussions concerning eye colour. Long-eared Owl, Eurasian Eagle Owl and Bengal Eagle-Owl have orange eyes, Short-eared Owl yellow eyes.

This specimen is paler than an Eurasian Eagle-Owl will ever be, so the base colours look good for Bengal, but neither Eurasian nor Bengal Eagle-Owl have a brown facial disc with white and then black border - Eurasian has a brown disc without distinct border and Bengal a pale buff disc with black border and distinct black orbitals.

I agree with a light Long Eared Owl :) the ears are pressed back against his head.

I think it is a Bengal Eagle Owl. If you like, I can post it to #Birds-Club's bird identification blog and our members can help you find out :)
