The use of artificial light was well executed, as is evident by the specular highlights of the paint on the face to give it that extra shiny look. This photo has lovely composition, great ideation and beautiful colours.

Eyefocused
I took this photo at my sister’s apartment on the balcony, while I was testing my new lens (Sigma 105mm Macro) which I had gotten a few days earlier. I was looking for something interesting to shoot, and suddenly I spotted a little turtle in the aquarium.

I’m sure this military drill was a wonder to see in its rapid fire execution. But it is another wonder to see when held still in this photograph. Preparation, precision, and timing all coming together so wonderfully. (All which can also be said of the photographer.)
