Man.. is this for real...?

Very nice shot... It's really interesting to see an animal actually posing like this :P Makes you think... more... like them :P

I'm thinking the caption should read...

"Hey Fred...would ya look at that tourist...what a knuckle head"

I Love this shot and gave me tons of laughs thinking about different captions.

Thank you and GREAT job!

Great shot with the backlighting. The tails intertwining is so cute. Last minute change of heart - I'm upping this to a 9. REALLY WELL DONE.

Unusual backlighting works really well..I like the rimlight effect in this picture and the animation of the animals.

Great photo, but they don't look meditative more like pals.

Absolutely beautiful light halos around their bodies - just brings out the detail of their fur beautifully. The fact that they have their backs to us and one has such an animated pose makes it almost impossible not to anthropomorphise and imagine two friends chatting excitedly about life. The pure black background works well to isolate the two individuals. 9

This is my favorite photo simply because it tells a concept and story, it doesnt' just show a picture. The human like quality of the Lemer is amazing and his little fingers are meditating! I've learned timing is the key to mastering great photography because it is luck and eye and cannot be taught. This picture does just that - shows great timing.

I really like the moment you caught though the lighting conditions appear to be too harsh,,,
  Photographer found comment helpful.

The lighting is my favourite part of this shot, well done!

Love this! I like how their frontsides are highlighted and how the one on the right seems to be jamming out to something!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I don't know, I think they are telling funny jokes about the tourists passing by below them. :) The lighting is definitely what makes this image - Well captured. Crop, composition, focus all good. Tones good for the subject. 7 - Goodluck in the challenge!

Absolutely my favorite in this challenge. I keep coming back to it and bumping it up. This has real character.

Nice picture, excellent use of backlighting.

Awesome picture. One of my favorites. I like that it's centered. Also like what it transmits to the viewer. Peace, friendship, etc... Hope it scores high!

The lighting and pose are phenomenal. I think the tails detract from the more important aspects of this picture.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Very cute shot! Looks like they're just having a friendly conversation. The lighting is a bit harsh though - looks like mid-day sun (very difficult to get a good shot in). It's neat that they have the tips of their tails in the water too. The DOF is a little off IMHO too and the colors could use a little bump. Still a nice shot.

Very good shoot. Lovely
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/18/2005 08:43:57 PM
This is fantastic! Looks like a cartoon. And you're right, it either looks like their meditating (OM) or cheering someone on! Excellent capture.

Since I am lacking in technical skills, I cannot give helpful comments. I am strictly a photo buff who is trying to improve, but as to telling you what is wrong or right, I am in no position to say. I am simply voting based on whether I like the picture or not. Sorry, maybe someday I will be able to give helpful advice
