Been playing around with one of the images of Angus (or Fluffy as he is sometimes known).

Decided to rotate the canvas a bit to make the eyes horizontal, I think it works better.

Thanks Chris, I think the eyes are more prominent because of straightening the image, well at least that's what I felt.

You can't call a top predator / killing machine Fluffy!

Top quality work as always anyway, I do like the peering through stuff style Smile

I didn't, it stems from some old shots taken in the rain and more importantly as Angus shook of the water - he went all, well fluffy.

Well it seems Fluffy is a hit despite the name, well done! Smile The peeping through the rocks effect is the winning factor for me, makes a standard portrait into something far more interesting I reckon!

Well I did think Pete might like he "straightened" Angus as he liked the previous version.

Never occured to me until yesterday that although the camera was parallel to the ground (ie. level) that the angle Angus was standing at on the rock was losing some impact in his eyes. So a little rotaion and a portrait with more impact.

Cheers all.

Off to shoot some autumn colour this weekend with a few ePZ'ers. So hopefully post something a bit different next week. Then I'm afraid it will be a couple of days at the MWFC.

I had never though about the issue with the eyes. It is a good insight and it really is striking, especially in the big version.

Bit of cloud is good though Ed, takes the harshness out of the light.

Cheers all, off down south for a bit of Autumn colours for a couple of days. So hopefully some nice colourful uploads next week Smile
