I love the hippos, and I think the idea is great -- the two things that stick out that I don't like are the overall brightness of the image (it seems overexposed to me) and the framing (both subject have no real grounding point in the image, as they fade off into their corners).

This is a bit grainy or out of focus, but nice composition!

Cute shot but the composition does not hold my interest. 4-ClubJuggle

Great "expressions."

Would've been nice to see em with their eyes open--but that might've been a long wait!

Nothing compelling.

needs more contrast, shadows; flattens out too quickly

So cute!! Great photo and wonderful work! Maybe, just maybe could've used a tad bit more focus - but could really be my screen. - Really great job!

Great picture and a great title. Well done.

a nice sentimental hippo shot. i might suggest converting it to black and white, though, because I don't really care for pink and grey together.
07/15/2002 09:23:00 PM
If you can call hippos cute... this is a cute shot :) Good job.

Nice shot. Zoo animals? (no slander intended) Good color, didn't realize they had so much red/pink. Could you have waited around all day until they got up and did something like yawn, walk, eat? (ignore the previous sentence, it was a rant about some of my shots where people asked for stupid, rediculous, improbable or cliche poses, like we don't have other parts of our lives. I hope you can appreciate the humor.) 9 Swash
