This Harvest Mouse image was my entry for the first round of the PDI competition for the new season. This was also the first competition with entries split into separate divisions.
They just seem to get better and better these kind of shots don’t they? I am assuming that your are not out there in a field and it is your lucky day.
But that doesn’t take away from the fact that the eye is pretty sharp. You have a nice triangular composition going on there.
I love the tail just looping round, but that’s what their tails do, so that’s to be expected.
If I had a criticism of it, bearing in mind that I am assuming that this is a workshop setup – type of shot, then I’d have shuffled my way to the left by about 6 inches so that that corn isn’t poking into his eye
But that’s fairly minor, of its type I think you’ve done very nicely.
There were 19 images in this projected digital round in Division 1.
‘Stretching’ scored 8.5.
The original image
I first met Bob Brind-Surch at Bracknell Camera Club and afterwards I signed up to receive his newsletters about coming events. Back in April 2018 I decided it was time to try out my macro lens at one of his Harvest Mouse workshops.
The final image above was cropped to a square and then I used PhotoShop to remove the bit of corn left in the bottom left hand corner.
My other images from the morning Harvest Mouse Shoot are here.
