Hey Steve were you hunting, from the look of the weary look on the meerkats faces:G. Nice capture. The crop is good, light is good but don't know if it is my screen, seem to me a bit grainy. Kind regards. Jaki

Think you are right Jaki - got a little heavy handed on the sharpening, I think.Unfortunately the colour of theircoat against the back ground was a bit of a problem.

i think if you would have boosted contrast... you could have got away with less sharpening and hence less artifacts..

Thanks for the advice Dustin - can't reclaim the original but have tried your suggestion on this one - is it any better?

This picture has less artifacts than the first. Something about the focus seems a bit off to me/perhaps a little camera shake.

I love these animals.

Thanks Tigger - think it was shake on my part although these guys are never still for any length of time. Should have used shutterpriorityon reflection.
