Beautiful capture of this Snowy Owl Selen.
The pose is excellent and sharpness and DOF are very good.
In general you've handled the whites ok although it looks just a little overexposed above the eyes.
Sometimes just taking the blue down a notch can make all the difference I've found.
A very comprehensive note as well makes thios a great post.
One of most fascinating birds in superb portrait. Lovely, BIG, amber eyes, immaculate white feathers and black BG - everything made perfect composition. I love it!
BTW - Prague? Really close! Come to Lodz :-)

a striking shot of this Owl.
Sharp and crisp.
Excellent black BG.
They are impressive birds Selen that I didn't have the chance to see yet in real but I know that we have many of them in my country... This is a great portrait with intense eye contact, good composition, details and exposure. This dark green background makes him stands out so well. Is it your first zoo shot? Thanks,

An execellent portrait!
I like so much your close approach and the clear details got on this owl.
It's so good the contrast made by the stunning yellow eyes and the white feathers.
I like also the framing made and the dark background used, that stands out so well the subject.
Well done and thanks for share it.
My best regards,

Nice portrait of this beautiful owl.
Good focus detail and POV,
Agree the white over eyes looks a bit oe but you did very well as a whole.
The soft white feathers like fur are not easy to get much detail.

It is nice to see the clean focus and the extreme details of the eyes.
I cannot wait until this winter and spring to see more of these birds in the environment here.
Seeing them flying and sitting with others is amazing.
Even though this is a zoo, they are beautiful birds to photograph.

Outstanding portrait shot of this Snowy Owl with amazing exposure on its white plumage and sharp details. I like its gorgeous yellow eyes and the intense look in them. Great DOF lets the image stand out well from the darkish BG and I like your POV to portray it. Very nicely composed. Kudos.

A real stunner. The bright eyes and its catchlight makes the look a bit scary. As if he can look right through me. Love the wonderful details in it coat. The dark BG really helped to bring out the beauty of the bird.
