Killed so many wild lives and still pretending you are innocent? I will vote a 10 for you to be the best actor of the 2009.

Love the angle of the owl's head and the fact that you have captured its personality. Very well done.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

This guy does not look innocent at all - he looks rather intense and ready to peck my eyes out....
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/27/2010 03:04:35 AM
wow the eyes are spectacular one of my favs 10

Great animal portrait. Nice and sharp... colours are perfect. Great job.


Now... please bear with me... I'm revisiting a little comment experiment I conducted in the 2009-03 Free Study... something like 21.gif K10DGuy's comments, but with a twist... the twist being, the story will move from one photo to another within the challenge... also, I don't select just a few photos I start at the first and end on the last as determined by DPC random order assigned to me, with a single sentence for each photo... should be interesting... and you're photo is 4th in the series

Very pleasing shot and composition. You really caught a different owl expression
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/23/2010 06:00:36 PM
Magnificent owl shot .. I love how his/her head is tilted in that, 'looking at you, questioning' way. Great detail, colour and light. In my top picks for a ribbon.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/23/2010 02:58:44 PM
Love the pose, very cute. Nice and sharp and clear, focus on the eyes where it should be.

I wish more of him was in focus - that'd have made it a truly outstanding shot!

great shot- top 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I love the tilted head - so different from most owl shots!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/22/2010 01:22:28 PM
The little owl tilted his head to the side and said innocently, "Who, me?"
Heh, great capture and look at all the nice detail! The details are so nice and sharp I can see the individual filiaments on the feathers.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/22/2010 12:48:24 PM
Pro shooting. Look at that light and color! You even got the personality. JUST clear as crystal.

Oh the tilt of that head just makes the shot. Love the feathery textures. Great focus.
