Hi Lili,
Lovely focus on this little owl, the colour of it's eyes are superb as is the sharp background colour, not what you would expect to see an owl against but a striking contrast. Lovely use of border top and bottom and great composition. Best wishes

Excellent portrait of this owl with fine detail and clarity. Good bokeh in the background makes strong focus on your subject.

Nice Job!

Hi Liliana,
A very sharp portrait of this owl with such stunning eyes!
I like the red BG and the sparkle there is in its eyes.
Good details in the plumage. The framework suits the subject.
My best regards,

Hallo Liliana,

Good to see you posting after a gap!

What a superb closeup capture from a cute fellow :)
The sharpness and focus on the eye part of the owl, is amazing.
The colors are natural and very well shared within the picture.
The red BG makes this work so eyecatching.
Well taken!

Viele Grüße

Hi Liliana,
Great detail and sharpness and a very impressive contrast with the b/g adding a powerful chromatic effect.
Congrats, mb

Buna Lili si La Multi Ani !!!

Grozav rosu, grozavi ochi !

Hoi Lili,
I prefer perspective 1, because of the portrait format. Perspective 2 has exposure problems in it.
The owl you present as main-image is superb too ! Great colors, details and focus. Exposure super too.
Nice frame to present it.

Hi Liliana,
Very nice and strong colours / tones. Great sharpness.
Fascinating animals - owls! What has Photokina to do with owls? I'd rather expect to find them at the zoo.

Best regards,

Great shot of a wonderful subject. The colors, contrast, sharpness. Fantastic!!

Hi Liliana,

This is one photo I really do give a hoot about! Couldn't resist. Such clarity, color & contrast. Wow. Although I must admit that for the briefest of moments, I thought it was stuffed. Wrong, as usual. Well done & congrats on your first every owl!

Regards, Derek

Bom dia Liliana,
The red BG was very effective. It's a lovely image with good exposure, excellent control of lighting and offcenter placement.
Very good to see included the two nice WS.

Hi Lili,
Not only the photo is wonderfully sharp, you captured a very nice expression of the owl. He seems talk to us! Love the fine focus on his eye and the strong contrast with the red background.
The two other versions have equal qualities of this one.
Bravo! Annie

Nice shot madem.its sharp with good detail...

HeLLo Liliana

I watched the other two versions in WS and I liked too.
WS 1 is too funny.
Superb red bg is so worth the eyes of the owl.
A very good and aesthetic photo with excellent details.
You have sense of beauty.
Elegant pesentation.

Bravo Lili !

Ciao Lili, bentornata ! :))
Incredibile ritratto! La messa a fuoco è perfetta con fantastici dettagli del piumaggio di questa simpatica civetta....che occhi!
Ottimo il contrasto con lo sfondo rosso e perfetta la presentazione.
Ciao! Vanda

Buna Lili,
Excelenta captura, acei ochi de aur sunt fascinanti. Claritate deosebita si culori.
Toate cele bune !
Parca WS1 e favoritul meu...

very eyecatching images, all 3, so you deserve 6 points :)

the red background adds magic to the shots and you did a great job in terms of composition and sharpness on subjects.

i like most this one you posted, and a slightly lower point of view (at the same height as its eyes) could've made it more artistic in my opinion.

beautiful images, i am looking forward to see more of these... did you shoot more at that exhibition?


Hi Liliana

Stunning photo with an amazing sharpness, composition and bg.
What more can one say..... Very beautiful TFS


Hello Liliana,a stunning study of the owl;the red bg seems an unusual bg for this subject but it does work very well.
The sharp quality of your shot is wonderful, and you have managed to catch the light in its eyes.
Tfs, regards Jean.

Buna Lili..
Und eai gasit ochioasa asta??
Imi place cum e realizata imaginea..
Multa culoare si...claritate!!
Numai bine

P.S. Nu m-am putut abtine si iatama-s pe aici. Imi place aici si asta este adevaru:)

Hola Liliana,
That's an interesting composition. I was looking at the size of eyes of this owl in relation to it's body and it's rightly made for the night vision. And you've beautifully presented here. Thanks for sharing.
Best Regards,

Ciao Lili, nice meet you again on TL, great portrait of lovely Owl with fantastic eyes, wonderful colors, fine details and splendid sharpness, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio
