[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note [French]
After play, it's time for a nap. But it's nicer having a cuddle at the same time.

Seal Bay on Kangaroo Island is full of these sea lions. It's compulsory to visit the beach accompanied by a guide so as not to bother them.

Excelent capture and well done on this composition. Cute.


Hi Toni!
Wonderful lovely pose :-) Your lovers are great and very romantic!

Nice shot! It's funny to see a pair of sealions apparently cuddling like this :) As sAner/Pieter has suggested the highlights are marginally overexposed, but it's not a big problem here. Something I would suggest is cropping the rocks from the top of the image though, they draw the eye away from the focal point IMO. Anyway, good capture :-D

They look so cute, like a couple of lovers :)
Very good composition, you should pay attention to the white tones.

Hello Toni, very nice image. The scene is very touching. Great capture. It is a little bright but not a problem I think. I agree with Adrain's good idea of cropping away the rocks above. Very good.

Hi Toni, nice to see the pair together like this, although there is a little overexposure, most of the fur is well detailed. Nicely composed and with good DoF.

A superb composition. One of those photos that everyone loves to see. I have to agree that it may be alittle over exposed, but still a great shot! Nice Capture!

Antonio, Very cute shot. They look like pals..Like the way you composed it, it's a different take that works for this shot. Well done!

Excellent picture. Very good composition, POV & DOF are great. Good focus. Maybe the whites are a bit burnt, but nothing serious. Well done!

Peaceful pose! I liked the hand position like hugging:)
Highlights are overexposed but POV and DOF very well arranged.Thanks for sharing this beauty

Nice shot Toni,
Nice moment captured, a little Overexposed on the white fur. But not a problem, as the rest of the shot is great.

Je ne pensais pas voir un jour mon portrait sur TN, Antonio ;-)
J'aurais probablement rogné le haut de l'image, de l'information visuelle inutile à mon sens, mais c'est personnel.
Bon angle de prise de vue.
Bon travail.
