Challenge: D&L (Advanced Editing IV)
Camera: Canon PowerShot S230
Location: Davis, CA
Date: Aug 28, 2005
Aperture: F/4
ISO: 100?
Shutter: 1/60 sec
Galleries: Animals
Date Uploaded: Aug 28, 2005

Cropped, contrast, minor spot editing of crumbs, border, resize. That's it! :)

EDIT TO ADD: A lot of people thought I desaturated or colored - nope! This is all natural! The "orange" things are almonds, the "mice/gerbils" are actually young chinchillas, and that's their natural color. Thanks for all the wonderful comments and compliments! :) These are my favorite subjects.

This is a VERY difficult subject. I'm glad you attempted it! Focus would be tough, DOF tough. Shooting fast enough to stop motion tough. Good attempt but inthe end, the degree of difficulty defeated this image. Perhaps a bit more contrast would help the image pop.

The chins are back...alright!!! They are precious!! Light is a little flat, but these two are a scream. I can't tell if this ia a duotone with selective coloration, or if that's their color and they're eating something orange. Either way, it's an appealing capture. Makes me smile!!

I'll trust that those are their names. :)

I think a slight bump in contrast and some USM would really help this photo, nice capture though..........7

Are they engaged ? Sweet couple. I wonder how they would look on a different backgound? I give them 9.

I'm not convinced that is their real names but it's still a great shot.

This is precious! I'm amazed that you got them to look at you and sit still for this. Love it! 8

Tee hee hee. How very cute. Good background and border choice. Just a cute shot. 8

tking the titles word for it that those are actually the mices (mices???) names isn't really enough for me. Great capture of the the two little characters though.

Great shot... I love the selective desat... not too fond of the border though. One minor nitpick is the use of proper names in the title. Unless it's someone famous, the use of names is not preferred in the title (just my personal taste). I love the shot though -8

A bit crisper would've worked better for me but I like the desat look you achieved here.

or a pair of mice who are not named dante and lily. But the picture (not the border) is fine.

How can I tell that this is Dante and Lily?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/29/2005 01:25:35 PM
Great shot of these guys..they look like hamsters? but color of mice? Love the expressions and positions in frame..could be a little bit sharper and a little more contrast.

How Adorable!! This close up is done very well. Nice lighting and clarity. Dante and Lily are great models.

Ok, this wins hands down. Anything with gerbils or hamsters gets a 10. Their little eyes are so sparkly AND THOSE WHISKERS. I'm dying here. SO SO SO cute and well done. Those little toes. HEE HEE HEE You made staying up past midnight worth it. TEN
