This is a Tawny Owl that I photographed in a raptor centre, I wanted to show him as I imagined he would be in the wild, hunting by the light of the moon, so I used some Formby Pine trees and several of my textures to create the cold winter night. He is facing away from the camera, so I think it gives us an “owls eye view” of his territory.
Edited in CS3 with Topaz Simplify and adjust as well as my own textures.
