First Place

JJG's Jewel, Paige & Ellen

Owner: Catherine Cannon, Virginia, USA

Judges Comments:

What a pile of cuteness in one place! One happy family. Composition is really good capturing peaceful moment and cuddles. Light behind them may be to bright due over exposure, but it has it good sides, it brings up details of theirs fur and we can even see every line of theirs mustages. Background blends in into the bokeh really well on the left which also makes gerbils clear in first plan.

Judges Comments:

What a comfortable pose tucked in and relaxed, wonder what he is dreaming paper tubes, treats? Unusual angle we can see his cute belly, even some small tongue and nose tip, clear image that shows us all the details from tiny teethes to fur hairs. Color of gerbil blends into the bedding adjusting lighting could make it more contrasting. But texture contrast between soft fur and rougher bedding is nicely presented.

Judges Comments:

Lovely couple safely cuddled in their box home like they have just taken a nap after hard work of paper roll chewing. I love way how their tales are joining togheter and theat we have had a sneak a peak into their private rooms. If only angle was little lower so we can see more of them closer and glass more clear it would be more rounded up composition...

Sonnenschein and Ikarus

Owner: Melanie Speck, Germany
#224

Judges Comments:

Great moment captured with paw over his friend face, squeezed together in a cuties hug. It could be really good if photo was taken by camera and not by phone. Image is not clear enough and more bedding could be shown at the bottom so the gerbils are in the middle of the composition.

Judges Comments:

What a handsome little fellow enjoying his day dreaming in the lovely wooden home. I feel sleepy just by watching him :-) Nicely captured moment just before falling to sleep. Photo qulity is poor and blurry like zoom was used, it could be avoided in future by using real camera for photographing. Since all else is nicely arranged composition, moment, light only better equipment is needed for clear image so we can enjoy it fully.

Sean and Seamus

Owner: Donna Anastasi, Massachusetts, USA
#320

Judges Comments:

What a lovely family enjoying they pile of cuddles. Lovely pose of the middle one who is resting his paw clammy and with a head gently on the side position like on some painting. It would be nice if photo was taken form a bit higher position so all of them are more visible. Top of the photo can be cropped out to remove glass that needs to be cleaned before taking photos. Crop can be in a way that focus on gerbils only. Clearness of images is really good! Despite the fact that photo was taken with smart phone.
