Three at Play by Shadow-and-Flame-86 Three at Play by Shadow-and-Flame-86
More of the adorable baby otters at the cotswold wildlife park, playing with rocks! Like the other shot I put up of these guys, I'm asking for crit on this because again I'm really not sure about it, especially the narrow depth of field... would love to know what everyone thinks anyway.

One other thing that my watchers may have noticed is yes, I have succumbed to watermarking my photos. I'm sorry, but I had to. After three years of turning a blind eye to all the uncredited re-posting, the final straw was someone selling one of my images on t-shirts in another country. After that, I am trying to protect my photos a bit better. I hate watermarks, and I wish I didn't have to do it but such is life. You may also notice that there is a website in the watermark, yes I now have one which is very exciting. Or it would be if I could upload photos to it! Hopefully I will get that bug sorted out soon and it will be up and running with my work on it :aww:

The composition is is fantastic and I think your DOF works. Do those little fellas have their tongues sticking out or stoes in their mouths, lol?

Watermarking is a personal preference and your's isn't annoying or detracting from the image. I think it's crazy that people still do that with the amount of stock photos that are available today.

hehe no they just all have weird pale lower jaw skin!

yeah I was suprised that I needed to start watermarking but... too many blatant and unrepenant art theives around to avoid it anymore!

So adorable! I like the narrow DOF, brings the focus on the most interesting otter in the group, as he is holding his paws up. I like the watermark too, nice and simple, doesn't detract too much. :)
