chrisby: Well done, summicron! This has been my 5 star favorite; excellent work! Perfect colors, nice composition and a great model! Chris
thx for those nice comments! i liked it also but it apparently did not fare that great in final competition! oh well!
thejohnnerparty: I am curious - why F14? Couldn't get what you wanted at a lower F-stop?
thanks for comment!first time my shot has been last place!
the f/14 aperture was (a) due to lots of stobe power and (b) to help keep everything in focus!
Thx Ruth! I was impressed to learn that the seal harvest quotas were generally less than 10% of the young, so it's chances were good. Now, surviving whales, sharks and polar bears is a different story!
