Harvest Time

What technical feedback would you like if any?

What artistic feedback would you like if any?

I’m primarily interested in how this composition works and whether the head turn works to show the overstuffed cheeks. Also, does the out of focus rock behind the Chipmunk detract too much?

Any pertinent technical details:

7D Mark II, Sigma 150-600 C @ 600 mm, Tripod, f/8, 1/2500, iso 640, aperture priority, pattern metering. Processed in LR & PS CC. Minor crop to 17.8 MP, so there’s lots of room to play.

You may only download this image to demonstrate post-processing techniques.

It’s a beautiful pose and raised tail adds so much to it !
If this was mine, I may burn the front (bright) portion of the rock.

Dennis, this looks fine. A good pose from the Chipmunk with the head shadow adding a nice extra. While the puffy cheek isn’t dramatic, it does show.
