What a face. Good job with keeping it pretty focused because I see the hand feeding it is not so focused. Well done

Nice! Good shot. He (or she?) certainly looks like he/she doesn't want to be disturbed.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/28/2003 02:52:55 PM
Fantastic capture. The focus on his face is great. I think you've lost a little detail in the bright areas by over-exposing just a little.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/28/2003 12:27:48 PM
Great capture,I love the 'expression' you caught, clear and sharp image too. nice work
