What a magnificent image! He checks one out with one eye and one ear, the others probably making observation in another direction. Oh ok, can't be looking in different directions at the same time. Very informative note. The colours and definition are just fantastic and so is the background. A fabulous portrait of this beautiful bird. Well done.

Excellent POV, the eye adds impact (has previously stated) and excellent detail. The sky background also adds to the photo.

A very fine CU of this Bengal Eagle owl. The blur around the edges is very well applied. The most important part of any bird, especially in photography as we all know are the eyes...They are very well captured and really contrast well with the plumage. Very well done. TFS.

WOW! What a fantastic portrait of this beautiful owl,dear Steve, amazing sharpness and the eye is the big hit.Absolutely an excellent work.I love the soft blue bg, too.
that's a real 'in your face' shot, I am surprised he didn't have a peck at you - he is not stuffed is he? :)- a really interesting note

A exceptional closeup capture of an exceptional owl, Steve ;O))
Great details of its facial features, especially the eye is the "eye-catcher"!
Nice clarity and well kept contrast with amazing PP work in the scene.
The light and exposure are well done, and colors are natural.

Hi Steve, now that is a unique birds eye view.. It is certainly a sharp image with the details in the feathers being very clear. Looks like he is trying very hard to ignore you. Fiona

Very very impressive image of this owl, excellent sharpness with perfect and natural details especially that one big beady eye.The tones and colours on its feathers are prominent and the BG is most fitting.I learnt something today from your interesting note as well, thanx.

Good job! You have made a comics portrait! It's like a scene of an animation. Foggy rounded corners, and an eye on the hidden side, while a little black circle shows off as to be a pirate's eye cover, has made the picture exceptional. TFS.
