    Hi all ... hope you are impressed by this one and not too disappointed when I tell you that it is a composite .
    FYI ... the original frame was cut off half of the flower , so I added the missing flower from a different image . I just loved the action the squirrel gave , but I was too slow to react properly ..... I was thinking back and forth should I try my first composite .
    as you can see , I finally made it .

    f 7,1 , iso 640 , 1/ 1600 sec , man exp

    processed with app 4 and pscc 2022 , cropped from bottom and added canvas from other image to the top

    thanks for looking and commenting to my previous posting

    cheers Andreas

    Super cute, Andreas!


    And no I am not disappointed, in fact I think you did a great job with the composite. Love the squirrel reaching out for the flower petals and those little feet in the air!

    Super BG and colours as well as tonality. Good framing. Sharp with nice detail. Wonderful image, sweet and fun and well processed too, love it

    Kind regards,
    Gabriela Plesea

    Hi Andreas — This is an absolute classic.

    Loved the moment, raised feet and the of course the red colour of the flower adds to the scene.

    Such a fine image. TFS !

    Andreas this is a real treat well done. I may consider lowering the brightness on the background a little otherwise it looks really good.

    Hi Andreas, this is one of the best squirrel image I have seen. Though its a composite, I think you did a fantastic job! Love those little feet in the air and the flower takes it over the top! Beautiful!

    Nice work, Andreas. I love the image, wonderful timing to catch the feet off the ground. Cute little critter going after what appears to be a poppy. Thank you for sharing.

    Very nice indeed Andreas,
    the spray of dirt w/tiny feet just off the ground really enhance the framing, colours and overall quality are working nicely from that R3, I see you have switched also. I've only just noticed have been long absent here. my apologies.

    I have no problems at all with composites. This one represents what you saw. The result is a fantastic frame that put a smile on everyone's face.
