Expressive, great shot with great tones of grey. Almost graphic! Again, the body language makes this shot really good: it's not just a lion from a random point of view; it is a portrait proper. And great hairdo! :) Thanks for sharing!
The kind of shot that makes me envious. Great compo, great hair texture, great curly thing... There's so much to see in this dimensional range! TFS! Goes to favs.
I'm speechless. I used to watch this scene every summer as a child. I saw thousands of different types of dragonfly court and mate. (Once a dragonfly actually sat on my finger and laid her eggs; I still can't believe it could happen, I watched the whole process and helped the distraught lady onto a reed and dropped the eggs into the water, hoping it's the right thing.) The colors and the textures are fantastic. Goes to favs.
Great capture! Might try to crop more off on the right to create two focal points: the red seed in the 'lampion' and the blurred red stuff on the left. Off-center might make this pic stronger. It could also be a bit sharper. Well seen! Congrats!
So funny the way the central guy looks at you... (S)he's the left wing guard, I assume... Great capture! The compo could be a bit more off-center, but that's a matter of choice. It might be worth trying to clone out the white speck on the water very carefully. Congrats!
Talk about grain, talk about compo, talk about tones, talk about light, talk about this shot. :) Fabulous!
To favs. :)
This photo made me smile. So simple, so pretty, so well-composed. With a depth of field that is of textbook perfection. No bothering stuff in the background. I enjoyed it. Thanks!
PS: I wrote this without checking who the photographer was. I should have known it was you, Janice. :)
