Common Seals Lounging
I like most the low POV and direct full-face eye contact. Sharp detail with good DOF and color. Always difficult in full sunshine, you've handled the exposure well IMHO. I'm waiting for delivery of the M III. How long have you used the M II?

Wonderful profile shot of the Seals. Very neat and sharp image with fine focus and good use of natural lighting. Excellent POV to portray it head-on and the BG illustrates their natural habitat perfectly. Very nicely composed and presented. Kudos.

I think you got a pretty good result from the rocking boat. It's a funny photo :o) I liked the composition and the expressions. TFS

Hi James .What a great big thing he is. he is enjoying the sun. good detail and colour. a nice POV . very well done TFS. great notes again.thanks.
Your lens has an in-built anti-shake mechanism, I believe, James.
The shot is very sharp and clear in spite of the fact that you took it from a rocking boat.
The two different coloures seals are very well captured.
TFS and regards.

It is a pretty sharp image considering that heavy camera outfit and the fact that you were on the move. It's too bad that you couldn't capture this one isolated from the one behind... but with wildlife photography we can't always have what we might want. Nice work on exposure and foreground sharpness.

I would call it "how to take photos when it's nearly impossible to". You must have made good use of the IS technology. Very sharp and well-composed. I like the contrast between the two seals. Regards,

Those chubby fellows have a charm of their own..!
Good portrait value and excellent textures in the fur, sharp fine details and natural colours!
