[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Early morning. At the mouth of the Glenelg River, Victoria, Australia. The water is brackish (tidal) here and it surprised me that they would drink it. Grey Kangaroos.
"Bufo" saw the previous picture and suggested that a view of the horizon in the picture would help put them in context and you can see their environment.

Nice compostion..

This is nice, Barry, but I prefer the earlier version. I think the pose of the animals was better and the simple composition was stronger. This one either isn't very saturated or lost saturation in the upload.

Thanks for sharing,
Evelynn : )

great capture of mother and child. more contrast would help. nice reflection.

A beautiful composition, Barry, and an unusual one at that.
Lovely shot of those two kangaroos by the water.
I like the curves made by the water, and the light on it.
The reflection is very clear.
TFS. : )

I would still say this pic is better than previous one:
Better composition
Better details
(the light and sphere were better in the other one though)

Hello Barry !
You have really a wonderful gallery here on Tn, that's amazing ! And this photo makes no exception - I love the soft light, the reflection on the water, the tender colors and light, the pose of the two kangaroos drinking, the pin sharp details, the beautiful composition... It's a real pleasure to look at. Very well done !
