[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Taken out on the sand bank at Donna Nook
An experience secound to none. This was my secound visit and will not be the last.

This pupping area on the east coast of UK becomes home to around a 1000 pups each year and believe it or not the most common reason of death to the pups is drowning.

Hello Geoff,

What a beautiful image of this very cute seal pup.
It so hard to understand that there are people killing these lovely animals for there fur.
Superb composition, great low viewing/shooting angle and most wonderful details, warm light and color tones.
Great clarity in the lovely eyes of the pup.
Perfect work. Thanks for sharing.

Best regards, Harry

Bonjour Geoff,

Parfait gros plan sur ce spécimen.
J'aime bien la prise de vue et l'éclairage qui fait bien ressortir les détails et couleurs du spécimen.

Wonderful POV: always good to see someone willing to get on the ground for that perfect shot... and those eyes at this POV make it a great one. The light is, of course, great too.

Hello Geoff,

Superb composition. I like very much the very low POV. Excellent sharpness. Wonderful light and colours.

Hi Geoff,
Great shot, you POV is excellent and the light is beautiful. I see you're from Bournemouth too, shame we don't have quite the same wildlife here. I've still yet to spot a Dolphin over at Durlston!

Hello Goeff nice wide angle good points raised in your note. Lovely image great light tfs rgds Necip
