A nice typical grey squirrel shot with good colour. Not sure the face is critically sharp but close enough at this size. Don't always assume VR will give sharp results, it gives sharper results. I can beat the IS and OS - all this terminology gets a bit much - on my Canon and Sigma lenses.

Editorial results? That can mean many things. This is a natural history record. It would be accepted into a library for general use but is not editorial. Editorial, in photographic terms, tends to mean for immediate use in news papers or magazines, or for stock editorial purposes, a portrit of a politician, for example, that can be pulled out for use in the future.

Editorial could mean anything though. Almost any image might get used in a book to illustrate a point, so is used by that books editor. It is thus editorial use. Do you mean news, or longer term publishing uses?

Sorry Andy for loading a mod and not any comment, seems something went wrong with the system and my comment disappeared. Basically what I said was the majority of your image is tree and for me this distracts from the squirrel. The mod is a recrop to demonstrate placing the squirrel in the right third of the image and reducing the amount of tree displayed. I also gave the colours a boost and altered the exposure in levels slightly to make the squirrels chest white rather than the light grey in your image.

Sorry again for the comment problems let me know what you think of my mod.

Paul thank you for the critique, I think I must mean stock photographs, which can be used to illustrate a point. I have some news type pictures from the Levenson enquiry which I will upload at a later date. once again thank you.
