Bulletproof by Thinking-Silence Bulletproof by Thinking-Silence
I took this photo two years ago in the 'Villa Hügel' park in Essen, Germany. I never dared to publish it as I felt not being able to show the image in its full potential. I have been editing the image for several times in the last years, never being lucky with the outcoming. But finally I found some postwork that I really like on this motive.

The crows in this park are very intelligent creatures. Observing me for some minutes always flying away from tree to tree. I just have been following it until it sat down right here. I love the tree for his unique silhouette surrounding the crow in an almost surreal way. Must be one of my favourite images until now :)

Hope you enjoy!

Such elegance and modesty. I truly like the lighting and the perspective. :aww: Such a lovely job on  this. The captured shot of this crow is very, and truly, captivating. For he, this crow, seems to be the observer of the viewer and not us. So very astounding. Lovely job, nonetheless. :nod:

Indeed, the crow knew what I was doing, I did not surprise it.
