Thank you both.
The Free Is my fav type of photo as I enjoy Wildlife and Bird pics.
If I am honest I was a little unfortunate with the Yellowhammer as I was caught off guard and was in GRP mode not single point on the Eye so have slightly missed focus.
Two great images Peter, both are perfectly fitting for their respective themes. Wet: adorable and fun, as well as being pin sharp and detailed....is it possible to have too much detail on the runny nose?! Nah!!! It's terrific! Free: Incredible detail in the feathers, well framed and I love the shadow too. Missed focus on the eye?...no problem for me....it's SOOC, so well done indeed.
Excellent work Peter!
Two lovely images there Peter. Entrance: some fantastic detail and textures in the stonework, I do like the wooden door at the end of the entrance....well exposed indeed! Young: great image, full of fun and happiness! Perfect for the theme. She's squeezing that balloon quite tight there....I hope it didn't burst!!
Nice work indeed!
Distant - Good PoV and fits the Theme
Cold - Lovely Icey shot.
Waiting - I really like that, the Red stands out nicely against the lovely blues . Nice crisp shot.
Object - great object the DoF is good and the Edited version is better
Wet - right on theme and a great shot. the snotty nose does not improve the look but works for the Theme
Free - lovely image the SooC version is very good but predictably the edited version is better
Entrance - I like the tones of the stone walls.
Young - definitely young and the Birthday girl looks very Happy.
Wet - Snotty nose more like! Cute (apart from the snot)
Free - The processed version is an improvement isn't it, but the SooC works too (and ticks off the technique). Nice detail and colour captured in both, but edit pips it due to the closer crop imo.
Entrance - Lots of great texture in this shot, and bang on theme.
Young - Loving the expression you've captured, it's so in the moment rather than staged.
