Hi dear frineds,

Here the nature is in prison.
Here, nice eyes are charged to be presioned.
Here, flying is restriced.
Here, flying in the nice eyes of bird is going to be down.
This beautiful eyes is watching it's own sunset flying with regret.
This eye is belonged to owl and I took this shot in pardisan park located in Tehran in last week.
" This image is not photographic in fact this is real."

Thanks for your attention.

Hi Saaed, what a fantastic, unusual shot. The photo is crisp and clear and the composition great. Your comments are also very good.
Well done

The sunset reflected in the eye of the owl looks impressive as photographic innovation, Saeed.
However, your 'poetic' note seems to convey a lot of meaning in terms of what you see behind the obvious and the manifest.

bonjour saeed
j'adore le reflet dans l'oeil.

Hello Saeed
Perfect Picture with comment.
Colors,sharpness. +++
Greeting Robi

Hi Saeed,
A very good picture with strong message on it.

Hi Saeed

Wow..... this is an impressive shot! Congrats! :-)

Salaam aleikum Saeed, I see a painter via this photo, my friend!

What a powerful image depicting what it means to loose freedom to fly, freedom to sore.

The reflection in the eye of this owl an is awesome message.

Technically I can but utter one word: BRAVO!.

If I spoke Pharsi I would use the equivaent of the Arabic "Wajid Zain!".

Excellent theme; fantastic implementation; outstanding presentation.

very enigmatic...i can see why now the fence in the eye is so important..

Hi Saeed

Wow, what an original posting.

An imprisoned sunset contained behind a fence,
and seen through the eye of this raptor from the sky.
Never again will I look up hence,
when I see the sunset without getting tense,
while I question my freedom and ask aloud, “Why?”
because I know there was a day when the sun was captured in the sky.

How’s that for an impromptu poem inspired by this wonderful shot of yours? I just love it…I love it…I love it…

I don’t think I need to say anymore, because I will just say again that I love it…I love it…I love it. I think that is clear enough (chuckle).

Great work and TFS.

Hi Saeed,
I loved this eye shot. Beautifully sharp and true to colour. Pity the bird is in an aviary but the pattern of the netting enhances the picture. I suspect it is an Bengal Eagle Owl and a credit to you.

Hi Saeed,
This is the most powerful photo I've seen in a long time. It's technically excellent of course. But the eye is so absorbing and the message it gives is so poignant.
Best wishes,

Remarquable gros plan et bonne idée.
Bonne journée.

Hi Saeed,
I really like the simplicity with deep philosophy background of this picture, the strong reflection of cage tell all the sad story, nice POV with good contrast, TFS

Hi Saeed
Beautiful but very sad photo. Great idea, good sharpness and nice compo
Best wishes

Hi Saeed,
AÍlthough You have many excellent photos in Your gallery, I think this is the best (or one of the best ones), because of its uniqueness. This kind of images aren't common at all, most of all if the pic really tells something - like this one does. Thank You very much for sharing this magic image.
Your Hungarian friend, László

Amazing shot! I have been thinking of taking such a shot lately, but till now havn't had a chance! Excellent application of the idea. Spot on exposure and good details!

just wow!!
really great work !!
