Great work, contrast and tones superb..
Thanks again Mark!
Your Photoshop work has made this creature more real not less, as it has liberated him from captivity. Fine, precise, and sensitive treatment of a noble being – noble unless you’re a rodent in his claws, I suppose.
Thank you so much Peter, i always try to show my zoo piks without bars, so thank you for seeing that!
Wise photographer. Wise creature.
Thank you so much!
very beautiful work!
amazing shot – superb B&W edit
Thanks Alan, he definitely worked better in mono!
Whoo!, you’re on the featured art page! And with a beautiful portrait too :)
Thanks so much for letting me know!
Wow, what a fantastic shot. The contrast between lights and dark and the use of negative space really emphasizes the owl. It definitely says nighttime in my element when looking at this photo.
Thanks for your comment Jacob, I nearly deleted the colour version, but wanted this effect in mono, so big thnaks!
Brilliant he does indeed look a wise old owl!!
Thank you Tainia, he really did!
What a brilliant capture Carole
