great light and colors. also the water drops and the eye contact with the owl make this image special.

p.s. 400 5.6 and 2x ... nice combination :))

fresca questa cattura Angelo,
ottima composizione con il sole che scioglie la brina sui rami e il bel ritratto del gufo

ciao sERGIO

This is a great capture with wonderful side light. I love the surrounding pattern of twigs and water drops. The limited palette of toning colors unifies the image nicely.

Evelynn : )

Hello Angelo,
I didn't see it in the thumbnail, but when I opened this photo I see a masterpiece! The light from the right side, the details in the drops and owl are wonderful. The dark BG is amazing. Splendid colours! Very nice POV, composition and pose.

Hello Angelo,

What a fine photo of the owl you have made. There is such a strong and fine light in your photo. The colors of the plumage are so well rendered and the yellow eye of the bird shyning in the strong light looks impresive. I like the water drops haging on the prerches above the bird and giving a special depth to the image.

Thank you for sharing,

Ciao Angelo,
una fra le pi¨ belle foto di gufo comune che abbia mai visto, bellissima ambientazione ed Ŕ straordinaria questa cattura con questo splendido rapace completamente visibile illuminato da una morbida luce calda, mi piace molto anche l'intensitÓ dello sguardo.

Bellissima! Complimenti! Ottima sotto tutti i punti di vista.
Hai ricevuto la mia richiesta per i dati per l'atlante di Venezia?

Ciao e grazie, Emanuele
