What a beautiful shot. Great composition and pov. Beautifully sharp, the brilliant red eye really grabs you, and the hint of blue in the distant grabs you and draws you back. A really lovely shot.


Great clarity and nicely taken. Great angle.

Hi Richard.
Wow, sure got eyeball to eyeball in this shot, great stuff.
There is a slight softness to the face, it looks as if the sharp focus has fallen in just behind the eye into the neck.
Timing is great to get him looking at you like this, well done.

Hi Richard!

Wonderful sharpness and details in your shot! Also a very good composition. Maybe a bit tight crop. Overall very nice work, TFS!

Best regards,

beautiful shot. Great composition.

Nice close up portrait with good feather detail. The red eye certainly grabs your attention!
