Esqurial by lucias-tears Esqurial by lucias-tears
a little interlude between my landscapes, hope you dont mind but this is for a school project and i'd like some feedback before i let the teachers see it : )


so i thought, hey, why don't i take advantage of this bright day and go to the park where i can use my telephoto lens with shorter shutter speeds! then i can try and capture some squirrels sharply!..... hmm.... well what i quickly found was that bright day (now i dont get them often here so don't judge me too harshly for it not occuring to me ;) ) bright days create really harsh contrasts making correct exposures near impossible! and especially with a subject that keeps bloody running around! no chance to double exposure here!

so all was a little hit and miss ;)

ah well, all practice is good practice, hope you enjoy? :)


camera: Canon 350d
lens: 100-300mm
location: Kelvingrove Park (Glasgow)
time: 2pm-ish
month: March
weather: cold but sunny
(actually very cold, i nearly froze my hands off..)


xoxo

p.s the title is the old french for squirrel, incase it looked random to you :P you can probably guess i stuggled for a good title so please share with me any suggestions! a winner gets you a cookie! ;)

I think what works here apart from the perfect dof is the colour. It is well balanced and pleasing throughout. Very nice image.

I love telephoto!! hahaha I love macro and lanscape though too. what I have noticed is a wonderful constant in your gallery is the gorgeous colors. I absolutely love the way you capture light and coloring in your photographs. Do you use a digital or photoshop or something or are you just so amazingly talented that a shot just comes out that vibrant. However you get it, I applaud your wonderful work!

gorgeous :]

When I was in Bournemouth [UK], someone told me that there is only one island where are squirrels with ginger colour :)
I Poland we have only ginger squirrels :)

i used to have a graphics/photography tutor who used to say he'd get mountains of these images of trees and the student would say i've take a picture of a squirrel. The simple fact that you've taken a sharp image of a squirrel that lands compostionally in a correct space on the image is something to marvel at. There are also triangle of interest created by the brances and even complementary colours in there as well which bring you eye to certain area of the image and balance it against the squirrel. mmmmm squirrels haven't seen any for ages.
