Good evening!

I have taken a break from TrekNature recently due to being incredibly busy with my teacher training course. However, I have just got a new lens, the mighty 70-200VR, means I now have to sell my two other telephotos to make up the £££! Got some time a couple days ago to take some photos with it and very impresses with the quality.

This shot was taken in good old Richmond Park and these young bunnies were enjoying the sunshine. They disappeared for a while which allowed me to take up position ready for when they popped up again. They were very alert and disappeared after the shutter went!

I hope you are all well. I have some time this weekend to finally do some critiquing, right now I'm off for some R&R, children wear you out something chronic!

Hi Simon,
They are so cute to look at. I have 3 younb unes in my garden and it is so nice to see them play etc.
Nice composition and low pov. Great sharpness and dof and nice colours.
tfs Paula

They are so cute!
Veru good capture and very good quality, beautiful picture, I would consider using close aperture for bigger DOF.

Hello Simon

Very high on the cuteness factor scale.The DOF and POV are excellent.The colours are natural and well saturated.This photo puts us right in their midst.Well done


You must have been waiting ages to get this shot. It looks like they are posing for you.

Great detail and composition.Tfs.

Hi Simon,
So cute photo! Details and colors are excellent. DOF is beautiful. It is impressive that 200mm were sufficient for such a photo.


Hi Simon,
This is a cute shot, I like the composition. The subject is really nice and sharp and the OOF rabbit in the back actually is'nt that bad but I probably would of went for a higher aperature and get both subjects in focus. Still a great picture. :)

Hi Simon, nice sharp shot of the main rabbit, shame about the aperture blurring the rabbit in the foreground. Your lens is doing a good job on the focus. I probably would have cloned out the blurred rabbit as the sharp one stands well on his own.

Hi Simon

Welcome back and with a stunning shot. I really love this. I like the DOF here and the perfect sharpness on the one in front. Lovely composition. Your patience was well rewarded with this shot.

Great POV and lovely natural colours as well
