Title: Horned Owl

Author: Pieter S. van der Meulen


The original image was taken in July '90 with a Canon A-1 and FD35-70 on Ektachrome, 100 ASA, on July 1990 in Alaska. The photographer (me :-) is reflected in the eyes (@left), and is being completely ignored by this magnificent bird. Digitization was done via PhotoCD. From 4Base resolution, the alpha channel was created by edge detection and floodfill. Low-pass filtering (norm. cut-off 0.2) was applied to create a soft alpha mask. The final result was shrunk by half.
