No Calls During Dinner

Uploaded: January 28, 2008


This owl lives at the National Zoo.

Lots of Photoshop layers to darken the background and brighten parts of the owl, like its eyes. Some noise reduction and sharpening, too.

This is outstanding. You balanced the light/dark just right for the best presentation of the owl. Excellent detail in the feathers gives the photo great impact. #5528731

BetterPhoto Websites: If you see an orange website link directly under the photographer's name, it's totally okay. It's not spam. The reason: BetterPhoto is the one that offers these personal photography websites. We are supporting our clients with those links.

Unavailable EXIF: If there is no other information but 'Unavailable' in the EXIF (meaning no EXIF data exists with the photo), the 'Unavailable' blurb is not displayed. If there is any info, it shows. Many photos have the EXIF stripped out when people modify the image and resave it, before uploading.

I hear, I forget.
I see, I remember.
I do, I understand.
