Hi Lillian, V1 is a breathtaking image, absolutely love it, great detail, colour and a super diffused b/g, nothing wrong with V2 but for me V1 is Superb.

Both wonderful images. V1 is especially great in detail and has super light, so gets the click this afternoon. I do love Otters but sadly you can't have everything and the folk in Jedburgh have discovered the hard way it means no little Ducklings make it to adulthood in the River Jed these days!

Nothing wrong at all with these two superb captures, well done. I replied to an advert for a Water Otter for sale for 100.00, sent the money and had back a kettle.

I quite like having an attempt at a mod when given a chance but I would not dare here as I think your originals could not be improved in any way, Lillian: two fab shots, and I specially like the way you have captured the otter in V 1, the side lighting proving so effective in showing off the detail in it's coat, and even with a nice glint in it's eye.
