Well seen and captured, Mark, and I agree that the tree knot does look like the eye of an owl.
You have included just enough of the tree for it to look like an owl.
I'm not sure what you want in the way of critique here.
I usually class tree bark as an abstract, but this has an extra illusion aspect to it.
You have presented this in colour, but I feel that black and white would suit it better, further enhancing the illusion.
I have done a modification where I changed it to mono, adjusted levels for added contrast, and sharpened.
My second modification has a brown hue added, which is appropriate to both the bark and the idea of it being an owl.
Pamela.

It certainly does. Good advice above. For me, theres an obvious mod where you use two copies, and flip one to make an entire Owls face. I couldnt resist it, and when presented like this I think colour, with some toning works, - not unlike mod2. I have "suggested" a beak and eye reflections with some tweaks.



regards
