Hi Mark

these birds always intigue me because of the sensation on me of sad faces and for the beautiful colors in the heads...
nice composition an ud=se of the long lens with a good BG and really sharp razor details...

Hello Mark,
Very beautiful photo taken from a good POV in excellent sharpness and details. Great clear colours, composition and OOF BG.

Beautiful subject and a great composition. I like the way you placed the bird along the right 1/3 line. Excellent use of limited DOF to isolate him, too. Perfectly executed.
P.S. How many other shots did you take that didn't measure up to this one?

excellent capture of the pretty puffin! :-) everything is perfect - sharpness, composition,
details, colors, the blurred background. this is one to lay back and enjoy.
well done & best wishes, thor.
