Good photo, Alexandre!
Nice details on the owl, good colors.
I think the crop is a little bit tight on the top of the picture.
Well done!

Nice shot Alexandre
The pose is very good and the POV is perfect.
Good DOF and sharpness.
Is that you in her eyes?

I agree with Robert, the owl must have more space on the top.

Good post, well done.

Great shot Alexandre, this is a lovely little owl.
You have acheived a good depth of field with both foreground and background out of focus.
The focus is directed to the eyes and 'wow' what a pair of eyes they are.
Great note, thanks for showing this lovely picture.

I wondered why it was on the ground - but it is a burrowing owl. Very interesting notes - I never knew about this owl before. She's looking very warily at you Alexandre. Good shot and well done.

Great shot Alexander.
Very good pose, POV. details and colours.
As mention it's a little to tight at the top.
Very well done.

Very nice post Alexandre. The detail and POV is very good. Amazing eyes. Good work

Another great picture of beautiful owl. I like her face, eyes and pose. Looks little angry for me :-) Did you fire at her with flash?

Points later.

Nice shot, good sharpness and DOF, good note.

A very endearing capture again showing nice details. Well done.

The DOF is particularly good here, Alexandre, because the owl being tack sharp between a soft fore and background, it puts it really very well in evidence. Superb light and exposure between clear and dark sides. Great diagonal to frame the subject. Very well done.

Personal assessment of the photo: great
Aptness of the photo for the site: great
Degree of difficulty for the photographer during the capture (personal assessment): high
Degree of utility of the note: excellent
Comment: Alexandre, I test at present a new and personal way of writing my critics and you are among the first ones to whom I send it.
Any comment will largely be appreciated.
An excellent work.

I love colours of his feather! Great shot!

Exceptional capture, Alexandre. The critter is sharp and well composed to show the burrow. Love the eyes. Well done.

Iste e definitivamente unha ave moi bonita e fotoxenica, semella estar feita para sacarlle fotos :D
E unha foto preciosa, co BG e FG fora de foco nunha diagonal, e o gradiente claro-escuro na outra diagonal, e o paxaro perfeitamente definido e situado. E unha verdadeira magoa que non a publicaras un pouco mais grande.
Un traballo meritorio.

Simply wonderful.
Optimal subject.
Optimal photo!
