Welcome, Brett! Great subject. Well captured, too. I think the exposure is spot on, and leaves lots of detail in the white bits. I really love the blue background (of the sea?) My only suggestion would be a bit more of an off-center composition by a slightly different crop (trim a bit from the right and top), though I will admit, that's more a matter of taste. This is a solid piece of work, so I look forward to seeing more great work from you. And I hope you enjoy TN as much as I do.

A warm welcome to Trek Nature.
Your photo is super! The colours are vivid with nice detail. The blue background really shows off the Puffin nicely. Well done and keep those photos coming. Janice

I love seeing pictures of the Puffin and this one is excellent. Would love to see on "in the flesh."

I must say that this is a truly outstanding first entry. Welcome to TrekNature where we learn from each other. I can see that you will soon be teaching others among us.
Super composition, colours and clarity. Your detailed notes are most welcome too.

Hello and welcome Brett!
very nice shot of this puffing. I think this bird is one of the most photogenic animal. POV, colors and sharpness are wonderful.
You made a very nice debute on TrekNature.

Welcome to TrekNature. A lovely shot of the Puffin, a great shot to open your gallery with. Nice detail and colours, excellent exposure and DOF. I might have cropped a little tighter, just to focus more on the face of the Puffin, just my opinion though. Great shot.

Welcome to TN
I love your first entry, Puffins are amongsth my favourite birds (next to Robins).
I really like the greenery in the beak, and the colurs are excellent.

This is a fabulous photo of one of my favourite birds. The details/focus are excellent and I just love the background. The simple frame compliments it well too.
Welcome to TN and thanks for good note!

welcome to tn. i like puffins and this is a great portrait of one with nice colours and well-seen details. the note is quite explanatory and exposure is spot on. however, i agree with mbasil about trimming a bit from the right and seeing names/initials on photographs is not something i like. though i must confess this name/initial thing is only about my strict obsessions:)
thank you for sharing.
