    Superb John, I love everything about this one - the light, the pose, the POV and the bit of environment

    Really excellent point of view, detail, pose, and depth of field.

    Well done on this one. Are you actually able to raise the lens above the ground while handholding it?

    This is a winner! the foliage in this one adds the perfect amount of context without distracting from the subject or scene. Great light, nice n sharp!

    A beauty, John. It's sometimes hard to acquire focus on fuzzy little chicks, but this has nice detail, wonderful touch of greenery and beautiful soft background.

    What a beauty, John! Love it! POV is awesome and framing is great, love the colours. The vegetation adds to the image. And chick is really cute:)
