I'll be happy if you give me some points, but I would appreciate constructive criticism even more.
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!
