    Thought I would just break the PB postings and go for more of a fun image. This was from the den in Tswalu on the last morning just before grabbing our flight.

    Thanks to those who posted or viewed on the last posting.

    Hi Steve, a fun image indeed. Lots of action and interaction on display typical of the little pups. Good techs and colours as usual. Good low angle as well. TFS.

    Very nicely processed - (pretty needless to say really!) this is how it was ........but it doesn't quite work for me. .. my eyes don't settle. None of the pups are holding my attention.

    So how would you suggest to improve it and - ‘hold attention’ Jon?

    The details look great. The light is nice as well. Like the crop. The interaction is pretty neat. Im sure these youngsters didn't stay still for very long.

    Hi Steve ... bet this was great fun to watch !!!
    Technically a high quality image .... i do specially love the colors and the nice fine detail you have extracted . Very well done !!! Interaction is good and you might have done the best you could to capture this behaviour .
    But for me it is not working that well , maybe i have the same thoughts as Jon has ...not sure . There are so many elements in the frame , but the two major once get somehow lost in all that stuff .
    I have no idea how to improve things ... so take it or leave it .

    TFS Andreas

    So it conveys what I wanted Jon/Andreas, chaos with no fixed point, you just do not know where to look.
