Your narrow DOF actually makes this one quite funny..!
Focus on eyes only and the rest of the guy more or less blurry gives a weird impression, but still I can see his smile...!
This is one great close up!
The way the photo is focused on the eyes, and the fact that the donkey is staring back makes for a really...errr... affectionate portrait...
The way the foremost part of the donkey is more or less in focus is in great contrast to the blurred background. Had only the hindpart been a little(just a tiny bit) more in focus it would be even greater!
Bravo! I just love this photo! Makes me also smile :)
Hi Yarema, double thumbs up for this one. It is a little overexposed but for this kind of image it doesn't matter. He is really paying attention to us. A good moment caught very well. Good DOF and composition too. Yours, Jan
woah, now thats up close and in there good job, good focus, i can almost feel his breath, good job...tfs...james
I like the focus on the eyes..it's so funny and made me laugh too, great job
Interesting choice of DOF. I would completely crop off right ear to make the composition less centered. Try to shoot at a more favorable light. Right now you have a lot of overexposed patches on its fur.
Really funny pics. I think a good boarder may enhance your pics. Anyway, good job.
Great capture Yarema! Great, close-up image, and a perspective that makes this image funny, I can see that donkey smiling! Well done! Best, Sam :-)
Very cute shot! Pity the nose is out of focus, but I guess the animal walked too close to the camera. Very funny indeed.
Try F16 for sunny days.
Funny, foolish and nice photo! I like a lot this POV and the expression of the donkey. Well worked!
lol lol nothing better than a friendly nose. I love donkies! great nose picture. take care and welcom to TL
Hello Yarema, a checky donkey you got there... never know a donkey smile can be so sweet, :) what a gorgeous thing. good composition, nice detail on the eyes and not on the nose (whew) good shot!
In the right moment. Is a very cute photo.
I like the idea of put the focus on eyes.
The color is good.
You may have posted the very first drunk donkey I have ever seen! His nose is a little softly focused but I like the shot for humor value. TFS,
Good photo, relamente seems that this smiling. It is a very simpatica photo, good macro and good colors.
Very good 'out of the ordinary shot' Yarema. We do not have donkey around here so I did not know that the could make this expression.
Ha ha oh thank you for this wonderful immage, it really made me smile!
Very nice shooting.Good compo! :))
Very interesting and funny. I like the tight frame as well.
