June 2022 - Yellow Footed Rock Wallaby

About the Image(s)

Yellow Footed Rock Wallaby. Taken at Akaroola, Gammon Ranges South Australia. Lighting conditions are not perfect as they mainly show their face once the sun has gone down. They shelter in the heat of the day. 500mm f5.6 1/125.

I Geoff. Fantastic capture - sharp details - nice cropping and lines. I love its posture as well as the contrast between the eye color and everything else. To be picky, I would like to see better the tip of its tail... maybe decreasing the saturation a smudge would do the trick. I would certainly put this one on my wall!   Posted: 06/05/2022 10:42:14

Very penetrating eyes on that Wallaby - reflected low sun maybe?   Posted: 06/07/2022 20:04:30

Geoff, thanks for sharing your natural fauna with us again.
Everything works here, the catchlight in the eyes (did you use a flash), the muted background and the rocks that it is standing on.
I agree with previous comments about opening the shadows on the tip of the tail.   Posted: 06/08/2022 10:50:41

Beautiful image of the wallaby. I really like its intense concentration on the photographer. The background works well and the rocks give a nice lead in to the subject.   Posted: 06/08/2022 13:35:45

Oh, I want one! Such a gorgeous animal, and you've captured him posing perfectly! I agree with the other comments on the tail tip. The eyes seem a bit over bright to me on my screen, I would probably darken a bit and leave the catch lights.

The wallaby and the rocks make a great diagonal, also!

This a beautiful image. The framing is really nice and keeps it center. I don't think i would change a thing.   Posted: 06/28/2022 20:26:00
