I came across this wonderful striking owl shot by fellow Flickrite Peterhdr in the Flickr group Learn composition by example, where he was the deserved winner of a recent biweekly competition, this one on the theme "eyes". Brilliant variation on the common owl shots, thanks to the unusual diagonal take. Good control of dof, with razor like sharpness in the owl and beautiful blurred (and suitably coloured) background. A gem.
