yes, it's so cute - and it must be amazing to see a Koala so close.
Thanks, a wonderful post, I like the framing also.

No matter which category to put this picture, matter picture itself.
Excellent player and if we account for this Koala bear is among my favorite animals ... Thanks for this post.
Have a pleasant day,

I think I would have chosen a colored presentation. B/W doesn't work so well because of the tree with its curves and patterns. But ... it is a matter of taste too.
The composition is superb, and indeed, it is cute.

Quel joli portrait de ce gentil koala.
Très beau travail en n&b. J'aime beaucoup le cadre également.
Un moment de paix que tu as su saisir .
Paisible et ravissant seront les deux adjectifs que j'attribue à ta photo.
Tous mes voeux pour cette nouvelle année 2010

This is a great shot, the clarity and tones in the B&W processing of this image are superb, the Koala is well placed on the tree and the texture of the tree stands out brilliantly. TFS

A wonderful shot of this Koala bear in B&W.
Very sharp capture adorned with good light and fantastic details.
Very cute creature looking attentively to you, while seems relaxed!
Nice contrasts and a lovely thick white frame to enclose it.
Well seen and neatly presented.

Great capture of the Koala and perfect focus!
Look nice in black/white, but I think in colours is beautiful, too. I would like to see colour version. Maybe you can post it in WS.
The large white frame is nice, too!
And now you're in Australia!!! As I said, hard to keep up to you :)
THis is great Carol, and I must say .. I love the extra wide white frame on this one... suits is perfectly if you ask me.
yes, maybe a little over exposure on his knee, but otherwise everything looks great ... great tones throughout. He did give you a perfect little pose there, didn't he.
Wonderful job on the scanning too.
Have a nice evening my friend

Hello Dear Carol
Happy new year my friend
An Excellent shot for that beautiful koala, when i saw the Thumb, i was think it's a doll, but when i open it i found it's real, and it's really beautiful.

Love it ,the best possible cliche presentation of Australia Carol well framed,this is OZ!
Beautiful compo. Love the contrast between the soft fur and the wood.
That OE spot is a pitty but maybe it can be a bit corrected in photoshop ?
Do hope so !

I hadn't realised you have been to Brisbane. I live there and have never seen a koala in the wild. You were really lucky! I have seen some wild koalas at Phillip Island in Victoria though but that was before I got interested in photography. Hope you can visit Australia again soon! Good b&w shot with excellent sharpness & tonal range. Tfs!
