    The need for a camera nearby

    Technically this may not be a great shot. As far as pp goes, I am in the minimalist intervention camp. However this shot is one of the reasons we never venture out to work in the paddocks without having a camera, or two, within easy reach. One never knows what one my come across. Late in the evening the roos often visit our dams to drink before settling down for the night. And in the 30C heat we have over summer they often jump in for a bit of a paddle to cool off as well.
    Thanks for viewing and posting any comments you deem fit. I don't mind criticism in the slightest as long as it is positively intended to help me lift my photographic game.
    May all have a Happy and Safe Festive Season

    I think is a fine image Ken. Well done. I like the softness of the closest grass as to not drag my eye there and you got down close to his level, It all works quite well I think.

    The ripples in the water work perfectly to bring your eye to the kanagaroo - that was very well set up The tips of the grass do a good job of that too. Personally I'd crop in a bit tighter. The kangaroo to me looks a touch underexposed too but that might be the screen on my tablet.

    Great capture.

    Looks fine from a distance. I wouldn't try for an oversize print.

    The water 'above' the main subject doesn't add anything for me so I would consider a slight crop of the top and left side. But Otherwise it looks fine to me.

    Thanks to all who viewed and especially to those who posted helpful hints and words of encouragement Okay, so, I have to shoot through like a Bondi. Time to get my santa suit out of mothballs... and polish up the raindeer harnesses... and wax the sled runners ... and load all the prezzies for drop off. You know, an old bloke's work is never done!
