Great shots, I like the first one of the 3 of them in a little pyramid. Looks cool, and the close up is awesome.

Surge was kind enough to let me try a few PP techniques I am learning on his awesome snowy owl pic. i hope you like Surge. I reuced the noise in the BG and adjusted sharpness slightly on the Owl.

Thank you, all, for the generous comments.
No Angle, Thanks for the improvement. Maybe someday, I'll figure this stuff out.

No problem, If I had the full RAW file to work with I could make it even better I think. The file I worked with is a small 130kb file that does not have all the data anymore. I would be able to make you one that you can print out large size like you wanted.

Ahh, you are killing me with these shots!
I really love the snowy owl, and hope to see them one day (not in my neck of the woods, thats for sure!).
Great composition and exposure, just super!
