He ugly....in a cute kind of way. Nice DoF, and great shadow, but is it maybe a tiny bit overexposed?
Gale McAll: thanks for the feedback - what setting should I have used to get it less exposed.. the aperture or shutter speed

I can't speak to what you should/shouldn't have done, Gale. But I'm amazed at the turquoise color that comes through around his lower lip. The more I look, the more I see!
Gale McAll: Thanks Ginnie. Amazing creature... and amazing how quickly the colouring changed as it moved from rock to rock.

Hi Gale (my sister spells her name this way), In response to your query to Chris, I think you could most likely have dropped the ISO to around the 100 mark and quite comfortably have shot at around 1/200sec or slightly faster. If you had shut down the aperture, you would not have got such a limited depth of field, which would have spoiled the overall composition. This all depends of course on what your lighting conditions were like, but I think, looking at the EXIF data, that it was probably pretty good. Exposure aside, this is a classic pic well photographed. Many regards, Neil.
Gale McAll: Hi Neil, Not many Gale's around. Must be a great sister.Thanks for your input. The lighting was bright sunlight and yes perhaps 100 ISO would have been better. I am still playing with trying to get the ratio right so your comments much appreciated.

Mmmm, it is all very true. In standard daylight conditions you shoot at ISO 100.
Another thing to remember - we get comments from around the world. A true picture taken on a warm summer day may look like harsh lighting to someone from (for instance) the UK. You could if you want to, add a spice of colour in post processing, through saturation.

Personally I think this is a good shot.
Gale McAll: Hi Louis, I will try this. Thanks
