Hi Eugene!

I understand now why I absolutely had to open that thumbnail: we have the same camera...


More seriously: I like your picture very much because it shows us this squirrel with rich details highlighted by a perfect management of the sharpness. Moreover, the unusual point of view and environment for a picture showing a squirrel adds to the value. I also like to position of the squirrel's head and the impression of a full eye contact this generates.

Kind regards


great-sharp capture, TFS Ori

Hi Eugene.
Brilliant in every respect shot of the amazing creature. Camera, fantastic lens and photographer have worked terrifically. DOF is precise. All image of the squirrel is sharpened greatly. Colourful BG cannot be better. Smooth grass in front of the animal create a fine FG. Bravo.
