We took a trip to Mammoth and my cousins and I got up bright and early one morning to be cool and walk around the lake. I was walkin...in search for landscape shots to take and I heard a noise... little ChiPpY was eating pine cones. YummmmmmmY! I thought it was a cool silhouette. I snapped about 30 pics of him and this was the one I liked the very bestest.

Increased the saturation to bring out the blue a little more in the sky. Upped the contrast. Annnnndddd... that\'s about it. Oh, i cropped it too. :)

The first thing that my eye goes to is the branch hanging straight down. Had to look really hard for the squirrel. More focus on the main character would have made this a better shot.

I didn't understand how the photo's title correlated to the picture at first, but now I see it :)

Nicely done!

it's a very interesting ideea. Maiby it would be more intresting if you photografed the squirel while jumping. the sky , i think it needs some clouds,but the image of that tree can saves this. i like this!!!

i like that you used a wild animal in sihouette instead of the same way as everyone else....but is a squirrel in a tree that unexpected?
