Muy buenas Sebastien
Bonita ardilla y en una situación poco vista, por lo menos por mi parte, ardillas en la nieve...
Quizás le falte un poco de luz, pero es un gran documento.

Good take Sebastian, SHarpness is great. I think more exposure will be better.

hi sebastian,
very lovely capture, the squarrel looks great sitting in ice, nice contrast between the ice and the squarrel, shot has been composed well,
tfs & regards

Sympathique cet écureuil surgit d'on ne sait où.
Bonne journée.

Que bonita fotografia.Te he modificado los niveles para darle mas luz.Un saludo

Hello Sebastian,

Hi Sebastien,

A nice shot of this cute fellow,well captured in funny pose and good sharpness,well done and TFS

Remark when shooting in snow it is generally better to use +1 on the exposure correction.

Hi Sebastien,

This is so cute! The contrast between the adorable squirrel and all that snow is wonderful.

Hi Sebastien,
Definitely a cute one...
Good sharpness and detail.

bonjour sebastien
cliché extra,l'ecureuil mouillé par la neige et sa position c'est tres mignon.

Hi Sebastian,
Wet & wild, just how I like em'! :)
Great sharpness, detail, and DOF.
I like the POV and high cute factor of course.
I keep forgeting to pick up some stuff to feed the squirrels here & get a shot...
Perhaps a bit under on the light, not by much though.
Well done mf.

OH sooo adorable! This made me smile! I like the contrast between the brown and the snow whites.
Details are good but i think that it can be a little brighter.

Allo sébastien,
C’est une des photos d’écureuil les plus “cute” que j’ai vue :-) On dirait un petit bébé qui sort du bain. Les détails et l’exposition sont parfaits! Personnellement, j’aurais laissé un peu plus d’espace dans le bas pour donner l’illusion du corps au complet même si on ne le voit pas. Vraiment très réussi! Bonne fin de semaine :-)

very very cute, TFS Ori

Hello Sebastien,
Nice and funny portrait of squerrel, with good details and lovely POV. The only thing I would like to change in this photo is contrast :)
Best greetings,
