I just knew you would post something like this and wow us all. I like that "I'm
peeking at you" feel to this upload. Sharp as a woman's tongue and just a joy to view. This looks like a winner in my eyes.

THAT IS THE SOLUTION YEAH....yay and thank you. A photo that is both an A and an O.... Good shot, a wee bit blurred and I would have cropped out the black shadow at the bottom, but that is just me.

O for Ostrich and A for Autruche :)

I think this is simply excellent. You have him at eye level (how did you do that) and the texture is well caught nice and sharp. The composition is perfect with him coming into the frame and colour palette is natural. Sharp as a whisker and a delight to review.

I had the same camera, loved it (with the same Raynox lens, and a 125 too). One day the on/off switch went loose and refused to operate

This is really sharp and good looking in b/w rendering. Placed to the side and not centered gives good impact.

I like how you kept part of the background in the photo to emphasize the mural on the wall. Nicely shot and it is well balanced.

I like your composition, solid lines and the incorporation of steam helps to add extra value to an already good shot.

Oh there is much feeling to this photograph. It is a hot day and we are in the shade cooling down. The range of greens makes this image sparkle and your composition is stellar giving us a feeling of shade and beckoning our eyes to travel into the photo. This is a really great example of how a 2 D medium changes into a 3 D effect and it is all in the tonal values, or rather, the very broad tonal values you have shown here. TOP MARKS.

I love the composition but feel this shot is a bit dull. Was it a dull or slightly misty day. I'd like to see a little more 'umph' to this.

Very lovely panorama but do you not think it needs a bit more 'sparkle' ? perhaps a bit more exposure or work on levels.

If you have PS I would clone out that white hue beside the fox behind the tree bark...I know you are not allowed to do this with these contests...it's only a suggestion in case you are going to take this image further. I love it and that one eye is the icing on this well baked cake.
