Made from my own images of an Eagle Owl and an Iris flower, combined, tweaked until it felt right and illuminated. :)

What a creative and beautiful composite, Carol. Excellent job of blending the owl into the iris, particularly the breast feathers which fade downward. Love the attractive lighting on the owl - soft, but sufficient to reveal the gorgeous detail. The killer eye, of course, is what draws me into the image. Its golden tones just radiate and stand out so well next to the blues and greens in the scene. A truly imaginative and artistic beauty!!! 8)

Looks like a wonderful dream, Carol-love how the Owl emerges from the iris as if by magic. The distant look of the owl's gaze adds so much to the dreamy feel of this beauty as does the bit of glowing light coming from the upper corner. This is a real gem-so full of evocative feeling-I would love to contemplate it on my wall as a meditation. Thank you for sharing your beautiful creation!

Very creative and artistic!
I think I'd prefer just a touch more light on the owl, but excellent just as it is.

Aha, so this is where the magic happens, so skillfully combined to enhance the feeling of radiation and illumination, with the lines of flower flowing beautifully outward.  Love the stately demeanor of the cupped Eagle Owl looking outward to its domain.  Best clicked on to fully appreciate the subtle glow and magical mood - wonderful to see the enchanting results of your creativity and thought process - beautifully done, Carol!
