LOL! Is NG humourless? On the whole I can't for the life of me remember a stand out comedy shot in a 30+ year collection of NG magazines. There might be one but it's not a style of theirs. We are drowned in a sea of high quality thought provoking photographs, not a bad thing but what you have done has lifted my spirits after commenting on EVERY single image in this challenge. This is image 108/116. I have 8 to go...
Technically it might not be a masterpiece, i.e. too tight a crop at the spinal ridges touching the top border. Cropped of rear leg. The eye, tongue and head is not as sharp as the shoulder area telling me the lens was wide open and the focus point was in the middle of the viewfinder. Low light? Looks like it.
Having said all that, the image had it's desired affect in the first nanosecond of me seeing it. It's at that critical moment when you turn the page in NG and see a shot that has you, the reader, sold.
Well done on entering an image that flips the bird to conformity, and made many of us laugh and comment too I hope!
