Eurasian Eagle Owl (Bubo bubo).

Great children-friendly falconry demonstrations are given by Angelique from the falconry ‘Flying Free’ at Muiderslot (the Muiden Castle), the Netherlands. After the demonstration, I could photograph this lovely bird of prey.

September 2008. Canon EOS 300X, Sigma 28-135. Post-processing: retouch, crop, color/tonality adjustment, sharpening.

Lenka tries to capture positive emotions. Her work features images highlighting inner and outer beauty of various subjects. She loves finding unique and unexpected perspectives of subjects normally considered as ordinary.

    This image made me giggle a little, Its a great portrait, love the clarity and focus seems just right. The warm/yellow colour cast could be adjusted a bit though. Composition with background included is dramatic.
