Taking in South Africa at a rehab center.
For the first time I changed a bit of the background blur. Still some whites but I think thats just how the picture is. Any suggestions are welcome

Hi Reina
I assume this must be some kind of a bushbaby, but unfortunately I do not know the species ID.
Your composition is great and the colours are very natural. The DOF was well handled and it shows lovely details on the little primate. The BG is excellent and your optimisation was pretty successful. The exposure was perfectly managed.
Very well done and TFS.

Hi Reina

A lovely clear shot. Nice POV. Very good depth of colour. Light is excellent. Nice BG to compliment the shot. :-)

Hi Reina,



Hi Reina,
Excellent capture! Great POV and nice pose,
the details and colours also are excellent.
Thanks for sharing!

Very nice composition. Sharp and well exposed and nice blurred BG.
Good pose too :-)

It's in my favs.


Hi Reina,
This is excellent. Very sharp and detailed.
The POV, framing, color, and pose are wonderful..Your BG treatment has helped the subject to stand out nicely...Perhaps a TINY pit over at the top of the ears, but well managed. The only way I know of to improve this, would be to under expose more, and use soft fill-flash..
Very well done!

Hi Reina, excellent details, perfct colors, BG, DOF, POV, great work, TFS kyle

Wooow ! What a nice composition that you have well done ! Colors, details and sharpness are very good ! It is a pleasure for my eyes. Congratulations Reina and thanks for sharing.

What a beautiful image, Reina!
The shot is very well composed. The expression on the cute creature's face is lovable. Well done!

Hoi Reina,
Het is een plaatje!
Mooi kiekeboe-beestje, goeie titel.
Lekker scherp afgebeeld en je hebt er een mooie compositie van gemaakt. Zijn de witte vlekken in de achtergrond niet gewoon licht wat door de bomen of struiken schijnt?
Groet, Ruud

Hi Reina,
Beautiful shot! Excellent detail and colour, nice background work and nicely framed/composed. A beautiful little creature with the most amazing eyes :-)

Hi Reina,
Very nice. Great exposure and the OOF BG works very well in separating the main subject from the BG. Lovely sharp eyes. Great timing here.

Hi Reina!
Lemurs are cutest creatures in this world :-) Excellent scene, moment, composition and of course main subject. I also like your postprocessing work. Thanks for sharing this animal with us!

Cant believe I missed this one, I'm sorry. I love this one. everything is perfect and the soft background is very complimaentary to the subject. :)

Hallo Reina,

This is what I call a perfect picture! You've got a very good composition, excellent sharpness and the colors look so natural and warm. Very good job with the DOF too! Details are great and exposure is correct. Congratulations and TFS!
