They look pretty good to me too! Favourite is #9, least favourite are #4 and #8. The lion image is a bit back-focussed and on the carnation it is all a bit too soft, but I like all of the other shots.

Well done for taking and posting these, I hope my criticism is constructive rather than harsh!

I like these and agree with the comments above

Where possible try to take a lower/different angle for wildlife/animals to give a clearer background, not always possible but worth considering

Hope this helps
K10D, K5 plus plenty of clueless enthusiasm.

I like them all. Agree with Stuey on different shooting angles, (note to myself also)

Have any of these been post processed or are they straight out of camera?

Thank you for the feedback. It's most helpful. Yeah I'll try for a bit more background. I was attempting some close ups.

I hope this answers your question Karl
1. meerkat - slight crop at the base, i might have lifted the lighting a touch.
2. heron - no processing
3. otter - cropped, adjusted contrast. very little
4. sleeping lion - adjusted colour to warm it up, contrast and unsharp (poor photo to start with I think)
5. cheetahs - cropped due to tree behind.
6. bird of prey - unsharped to get the focus on the eye. otherwise no processing
7. jelly fish - No processing
8. carnation - cropped adjusted light saturtation and generally fiddled with it
9. B+W hand - no processing

I see a theme - too much post-processing spoils the light.
