    Pretty cool image Sanjeev, techs look good and I like the overall colour palette and light. I think there is a small tweak you can do, but lets see if anyone else suggests it. Nice work.

    Hi Sanjeev a lovely portrait of the Sea Lion , well framed and the subject superbly isolated from the BG .
    Lovely color palette and the basic overall tones are looking good , the wet fur does look perfect in terms of detail and sharpness.
    I do not know what Steve is thinking .... but i would personally dodge the eyes a bit and i would give the fur a bit more depth and tonal variation via channel adjustments , just my thoughts .

    Hi Sanjeev - Another lovely sea lion image. You did very well in your short time in California coming away with lots of keepers. The comp works well and so do the colors. If it were mine I would burn the whites in the bg just slightly and also probably get rid of the specular hl near the urc. Well done on this one.

    TFS,
    Rachel

    This is very nice Sanjeev. I like the light reflected from the wet fur, the pose, direct look and cracking detail. I'm keen to hear of Steve's tweak as nothing jumps out at me.

    Spot on Andreas, it just needs pulling back on the RHS of the body.

    I have read the comments this time! My instant reaction was beautiful colours and complementary background. I haven't payed around much with channels but I tried selecting the reds and applying a linear curve, I also did similar on another selecting greens I also reduced the blues in the sealion........
