Spot on focus and great, tight DOF

Only thing I might suggest is a slight crop of left and right sides to lend overall emphasis to the raccoon and its perch.

:idea:

The new crop makes an already good photo into a great photo.

I am with everyone on what has been said already. But I think it is a slightly too sharp. Just an opinion. Regards. Jaki

the new crop looks great, places the emphasis on the racoon and his perch- as stated- also places the racoon more off center for better balance- very nice.

I really like the crop, as Julie says, it helps the composition.

It's an excellent capture, as everyone else has mentioned, and I am very impressed with the sharpness.

The only thing I can think of to make it more 'professional' is to have a less busy background - but that's not something you can really choose, or something that reflects on your photographic abilities.



Best wishes,

-Ben
