DON'T JUMP !

By Imagephotographics
Morning everyone !

Many thanks for your comments & clicks on " COOL " - much appreciated.

Thought I'd share this puffin shot with you, it's the first shot I took when I got off the boat, I just love the look on the face on the little one on the right, it's like he's saying " What you doing - don't jump "

Not had my camera in my hands for over a week now - not like me at all, finding it hard at the moment to find inspiration !!

BEST LARGE IF YOU HAVE THE TIME !

Chris

Oh Chris, I find it hard to imagine you finding inspiration a problem, your work is always so different and this is no exception, a wonderful piece of work with a comic theme too.... love it

Love this! Not just a perfectly exposed & processed image, but excellently composed - without the one on the right looking at the main subject it wouldn't have worked as well. The title, too, says it all, doesn't it? All these elements make it a real cracker for me, Chris.

Its got colour; its pin sharp; its got humour; the framing and timeing are spot on, but the thing that stands out when viewing this image, is the pure style of the capture.
WOW. Great shot.
