oh this one broke my heart.
i used to take care of seals when i worked at the sealcentre in pieterburen (Netherlands)

but i think you captured nature in a special way.
well done.

Nature isn't always pretty but it doesn't mean it shouldn't be shown.

I think it's brilliant

Hi Ron

Think you have made a great job from a difficult subject. Cheers Steve

Really sad subject but taken very well.
With the main focus being its face adds even more to the shot than any other angle would.
Sad but good image.

Sad Ron, but love the angle you've chosed; seems to pay some sort of reverence to the subject. Very well done. helen x

Ron, one of your best if you ask me. You pay respect to the seal and to nature. Lovely perspective and colours. Is this the new Velvia 50 or the old still? Bert
