Nice capture. Uneven lighting will keep this from finishing where it deserves.

This is nice, but one eye sits slightly higher than the other and it really bothered me... still great shot overall

Like the texture of the feathers shown in this photograph. Very dramatic photograph using the tight crop and three colors, emphasis on the eyes. Very well done!

Excellent detail! This might get you a ribbon. Well done!

INTENSE

Close crop = dynamic and intense. Shadowy around the left but nice eye detail. Don't think it needs selective desat myself, but that's personal taste. 7

Perfect compostion. Good work.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/14/2005 10:21:04 PM
Wow. This photo is awesome. The only suggestion that I may have is to slighty rotate the photo counter clockwise to level out the eyes.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/14/2005 04:03:20 PM
The clarity is impressive. Very, very strong detail.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/14/2005 12:52:26 PM
wow, what a fabulous picture! definitely a 10 from me and a favourite! You'd better make this a print, it'd do very well I think! You should also get a ribbon easy with this one

beautiful portrait
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I find the overall image a bit too dark and the eyes way too dark. They need to be lightened as they are the image's major focal point. The more I look at it, the more it looks like a partial desaturation job. Either with colour of partial desat., you need to bring out those beautiful eyes more by intensifying their colour and brightening them up.

This is the best owl photo in the entire challenge -- including mine! I love the tight crop, focus is sharp, feather details are fine, the expression in the eyes. Great job.

Great owl shot! Love the emphasis on the eyes and desaturation.

Great emphasis on the eyes, wonderfull detail in the feathers. Good effort deserves to score well.

  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/13/2005 12:40:24 PM
Great capture of it's stare. It may have even worked without the desat.

Another winner. This is superb. Tight. Close in and well focused. Love the lack of color except his eyes. 10

You chose a very stable, staionary subject - nice crisp capture; interesting use of selective desaturation.
