Two great shots, Lillian, but that detailed portrait in V 1 is just superb........so much to take in, and just look at the detail in the irises of the eyes.
Wonderful shot.

V1 has exceptional eye detail. But then I saw V2, - and its just brilliant, - the tension in the animal in whats closely resembles a natural environment, a standout.


Just noticed you left mods off, - intentional or overlooked? I was tempted to have a go at V1, - V2 is perfect.



Regards


Willie
