Hej Micke,
I have always wanted to photograph the Ural Owl and maybe one day I will get the chance!
This is a superb capture of a young bird with everything perfect, especially the contrast with the dark green OOF BG.
Bra jobbat!

Ese pollo está precioso con esos ojos a medio abrir, produciendo una sensación de total indefensión.
El detalle es impresionante y me encanta esa luz que hay sobre sus cabeza.

Excellent photo of this baby Ural Owl :-)
What is so good about this shot is the BG... it is completely blurred, has not a single speck of niose and it contrasts perfectly with the Owl causing it to "pop" out of the frame :-)
Very, very sharp with immense detail.
Superb composition.
Excellent light.

Exceptionally well done!


hello MIkael

excellent shot of this young Owl, with fine POV and vertical framing,
excellent sharpness and details and amazing eye-contact with you, TFS

Hi Mikael,
Wonderful shot of this young and cute looking Owl in a fine pose. Great colours and detailes on its fluffed plumage and the lighting is superb. The darkish BG works well in lettuing the subject stand out nicely. Excellent DOF, POV and composition. Kudos.

Hi Mikael,
I dont think i have visit your gallery much and i see i have missed quite a lot of work.
THis is superb portrait you managed to do here of the young ural owl.The details on the plumage are spectacular and fine.I like the studio like shot.The dark green Bg and the PoV helps to keep the focus on the owl.
very well done with good lighting and contrasts and sharpness.
TFS & Cheers
