Amazing eyes! We can feel hypnotized if we look at them too much.Almost scary.This is very well composed.TFS
HAHAHA!! My what big eyes you have my dear!! Really nice, very unusual animal, I've never seen one before! How did you get so close?? Is his contacts really that color??
Fantastic entry for the Friday theme. Good sharp image with impressive eyes of a vibrant yellow.
If I can be little critical of the whole image though, I think the composition would be improved if the Owl was either looking directly at the camera and/or the negative space was to the left of the Owl, the same direction as the Owl is looking. It's also a pity the background is a very similar colour to the Owl, something outside your control I know.
Kind regards, Kath

I think this looks really really lovely Vandana.
Maybe because of all those dark hairs sticking out every which way.
He probably loves his cage dark, otherwise he would close his eyes.
- WMcK (6837)
- [2008-01-12 3:12]
Wow you sure got the eyes to stand out . I love the detail of his feathers here and the beak. This is a great capture and I just love it. Good composition and stunning contribution to the theme.
Thank you for your kind words On “You’ve got Mail”

Great posting for Helen's theme.
Wonderful details and posture.

He is a lovely fellow and you have caught the beautiful eyes perfectly. I love the look he is giving you. Nice sharp detais caught in some obviously tricky lighting conditions. You could get some more light and details in the feathers with some photoshop tweaks. I had a play to see if it could be done and got a nice result with s shadows and highlights and a curves tweak.
It is a lovely shot and perfectly suits the theme
