    Default Cape Fur Seals

    Hi all .... this little chap was trying to get an overview , maybe checking out where his mum was gone .

    One of the world largest colonies of this species . located on the Namibian west coast . Up to 300.000 animals in peak times !!
    Access is basically only possible from a short boardwalk .... even occupied by the seals . If you try to go somewhere else to get a view from another point .... animals become nervous and just start running away to the ocean .


    Canon EOS 1Dx II
    EF 200-400 IS L with TC engaged ( 560 mm )
    Handheld

    F 6,3 ; Iso 4000 ; 1/1600 sec

    Processed with DPP 4 and PSCC 2021 ; slightly cropped and added canvas afterwards .... basically full frame

    Thanks for looking and commenting to my previous posting

    Cheers Andreas

    Little to no noise delightful colours and tones, my only slight reservation is that the subject is smack dab central - not "wrong" but if you chopped a little off the LHS - ??

    Thanks Jon ...... understand your reservation , had that in mind but wanted to stay in 3x2 . So had to make a compromise and think the body is turned to the RHS .... so the RHS is less empty and things are somehow balanced , albeit not being perfect .

    Cheers Andreas

    Very sweet little pup, truly adorable. Well spotted Andreas!

    Love the innocent look and pose, nice techs, good DoF. Subject stands out really nicely. Central positioning not too bad in this instance, I do understand your thinking and 'compromise'.

    My eyes are drawn every now and then to the little face in the corner on the RHS, what a cute face I really enjoyed this image, you must have lots from this sighting?

    Kind regards,
    Gabriela Plesea

    Nice image and understand on the crop. Details are superb and love the way he sticks out center stage. Love the moody overall look guessing it was a cloudy day. TFS
