Barred Owl Poster by AuntDot

Currently unavailable for purchase

Available to buy on…

This large barred owl was in a very dark wooden enclosure at the Suncoast Seabird Sanctuary in Indian Shores, Florida. The photo was very dark, and when I lightened it enough to be able to see the eyes, it became impossibly washed out. I didn’t want to throw it out, since it’s the first owl I’ve ever photographed! I tried a few effects in Photoshop, and I thought it looked better posterized, so that is the way I left it. The text finishes off the poster effect.

FEATURED in Alphabet Soup, October 16, 2010

Having lived most of my life in the northeast U.S., I am enjoying retired life in sunny Florida. I enjoy photographing many different kinds of things, but especially flowers and animals, including the beautiful birds found here in Florida. I am currently using a Canon EOS Rebel XSi/450D camera, a Canon 55-250 mm telescopic zoom lens, and a Sony P10 Cyber-shot digital camera. My newest acquisition is a Canon PowerShot SX260 HS, a point and shoot which I will be carrying in my purse.
