Ollie relaxing by the pool with a drink yesterday.
Taken at 200mm at waist level using flip-out monitor. I was able to take a couple of dozen pictures before he realised - although nothing comes between him and a Fanta anyway.
Any comments welcome.

Where can't you buy Fanta anymore ? (we've been in Spain for a year now, and our kids are almost completely addicted to it - we even have to clean their teeth in it, 8-)

Awe!! Just look at that face. Would be a great sales ad for Fanta.

Great candid portrait.

Can you get rid of the 2 little marks by his ear & chin ? In fact take them all away and leave the BG plain

I don't like them either, but I'm not sure a totally white background would look good either. I prefer a neutral background like on my "Triumph". Maybe the light was too harsh on this one. Thanks for your comments meanygreeny.
