How unusual it is to see such a funny communion between humans and wild animals. This picture is therefore very special and tender and has obviously a great impact on the viewer.
I personally like the green bokeh in the background; its always a technique that increases the importance of the first plan (in this case). The focus is nice but the colours could be a little bit stronger in order to obtain a bigger contrast among the elements and maybe the ISO could be a little lower; an F/2.8 suggests enough light and aperture to decrease the sensibility needed, I believe.
Overall, its a great photography of an unusual moment and congrats on the title aswell, very funny and cute!
Aw! I'm so in love with this picture!!! I think it's very hard to take an awesome picture like that! That animal is so gorgeous! It makes people love raccoons! This is a magical moment between nature and people, between human and animal... And that is a great and magical concept! The raccoon seems so relax, his eyes are so beautiful! That's so magical on this picture! It looks like the raccoon takes the hand of the human and not the other way around!
I tried many times to take pictures like this one... But it's so hard!!! I think you're a very talented photographer! One of the most amazing pictures I've ever seen!
Keep making amazing artworks like this one. It inspires people!
