First of all, I have never written a critique before but I decided to give it a shot because this picture really grabbed my attention so I asked myself why. The thing I really like about this picture is not only the focus but the emotion of it. The puffin itself looks as if it is trying to appear more innocent than it is which goes really well with the way the image is focused. The way the puffin is posing, I think, really makes the picture special because it could be thinking anything and I'm questioning what it could be thinking. I also appreciate the contrast of the orange in the beak with the background and the white on its chest, face and in the top left corner create a nice balance and draw your eye to it.
The Artist thought this was FAIR
3 out of 3 deviants thought this was fair.
Oh I really like this shot. Really nice and bright and well composed. It reminds me so much of one you took last trip too (Just I like it about 100% more)
The colour of the bill really stands out from the green of the background. Wonderful focus too showing the details of the puffin.
Thanks, it's hard to show detail on puffins as their black against the white makes them so hard to shoot. Still very enjoyable though
One of my favourite animals because they look very funny!
He's indeed lovely, great make up around the eye
I like the colours and the expression in his eyes Wonderful picture!
yes, very lovely puffin XD
I love puffins!!! I really like this portrait shot of him and how it's bordered with the green tones .
Me too, they're quite a comical animal for some reason Thanks Victoria
Ahhh! How adorable, I love the expression!
