superb detail and colour, you can get a real sense of the texture of the skin here. It's an unusual face that i wouldn't have known belonged to a turtle without reading your notes first either. Ok, the frame is a little tight but after reading the circumstances in which you got this, i think you have done a great job. I also think the eye is very good!
tfs and have a good weekend,
keenly sharp where it counts in all animal shots..the eye..
good eye and, well,...what about some cloning instead of framing..
careful lighting shows off the skin texture and delicateness..it seems like that to me
Bardzo krotko, pewnie wroce teraz - niesamowity zwierz! Nie chwaliles sie, ze go widziales w USA! Swietne workshopy uzupelniajace portret. Szkoda tylko, ze w portrecie zolwiak ma uciety nos, cos wyraznie nie poszlo Ci z lapaniem kadru ;)

looking at the thumbnail I thought this was some kind of Ray sticking its head out of the water... I was surprised to see this unusual turtle!
+++ Great sharpness, detail and clarity. An effective close crop and a good composition. Great POV.
--- Nothing :)

That sure is a funny turtle Michael.
I just wish we could see all of its nose.
Exposure and detail are very good though.

Heheh, to jakis nieudany eksperyment genetyczny? Krzyzowka dzika z salamandra :-) ? Zdjecie rewelacyjne, zwierzak ma tak glupawy wyraz twarzy, ze az chcialoby sie miec taka maskotke :-) Swietna notka i workshopy.
A w ogole, na pierwszy rzut oka na miniaturke myslalem, ze to poskoczek mulowy.

Without your description I never would guess, that it is a turtle. Great portrait. Terrific reproduction of all details of the animal. Note is written perfectly, full of content and interesting. WS are very nice too. Bravo and TFS.

Hi Michal and sorry for the delay
Another terrific shot from you...and it comes with another set of great workshop pictures again - always a pleasure to enjoy.
This is indeed a very interesting species - one completly adapted to its way of life. Your photos show that well, but this portrait here is excellent.
That pointy nose is just amazing, but the colors from its eyes are just outstanding! You managed to focus greatly on that and to make them stand out well. Great sharpness there and very good POV for it.
Bravo and TFS

That is a superb portrait on this Soft shell tutle. I love the composition and tight framing here. Amazing colors and tack sharp detail. Very cool shot. I love it!

A wonderful close capture where the stunning eye stands out perfectly. The brightness of the eye and the texture of it is very beautiful. You also captured great texture in the skinn of this turtle. It would have been nice to see the entire nose inside the frame, but the eye takes up for most of the attention.

I find this an amazing photo and workshop photo. I've never seen a turtle like that. Thanks for sharing it with us. The iridescence in the eye is super.

Very nice details, color, DOF, POV, and exposure..
And the turtle wins by a nose in this dramatic photo finish ;}
Excellent closeup of this odd looking fellow.

very good, this original portrait of the Softshell. The turtle almost starts speaking to you ! I like the pic a lot. Do you know anything about the holes in the skin (never seen before)? Very intersting notes. Thanks for presenting.
My best regards,

This is so interesting! I have never seen this specie before... It looks so strange to me. This is a very close and detailed portrait even if the frame is not ideal. Pictures in WS and your notes are very useful. I have learned new things today, thanks!
