Hace rato que se que no participas de TN; sin embargo como no hay muchas fotos de armadillos prepare un WS más "diurno".
Creo que no están bien los colores ni la luz, pero es una buena toma
Nice composition, but it's way too dark. I also did a workshop on it and warmed up the color a bit. I tried to sharpen it but found that jpeg artifacts are already showing in some places and sharpening just makes them more obvious. Saving jpeg files (jpg) too many times causes artifacts (lines, rough edges, etc.). The original jpeg (jpg) files should be converted to tif files and then you can resave them as many times as you want without degradation. I suspect that this shot was taken under moonlight, which is problematic. Since I can't see any way to put the results of the workshop I did onto this site I'll just have to pass on placing it here. Thanks for postimg the picture of this beautiful and elusive animal.
Good shot, must have been some distance away so I reckon you deserve the points just for getting this one in . Well done.
Nice shot Fabio.
Good detail. Excellent notes.
Thanks for posting
Fabio, the other have commented on the lighting problem and Pompey has done a good workshop. I suspect the problem is with your camera settings. You need to check if you have accidently over-corrected for the f stop. Each camera has its own perculiar way of doing this and I'm not familiar with yours. However as all 3 of your shots have the same problem, you can be pretty confident thats where the issue is. If you can't work it out for yourself just go to your camera shop and ask them to help you. Alternatively you could try adjusting the brightness and contrast levels with the image software that you have before posting.
Keep posting though, these are interesting animals and your photographic skill is not the issue, it just an f stop problem.
I think that this is a good composition and an excellent subject but agree with Ornis that something is not quite right with the lighting.
You have provided a very comprehensive note.
I have tried a little workshop, hope you don't mind.
Welcome to Trek Nature Fabio.
Me alegro de que te guste TN, has empezado con una foto y comentario interesante, pero ya te han dicho que la calidad y tamaño no son los adecuados para disfrutar de ella.
Chris (sandpiper) ha mejorado tu foto con un workshop.
Para poder saber por qué te salen tan oscuras, ayudaria conocer el modelo de tu camara, y los parámetros utilizados para sacar la foto. Estos puedes encontrarlos adjuntos a la misma y los podras ver con cualquier programa editor de imagenes tipo photoshop.
Espero ver mas fotos y críticas pronto. Un saludo desde España.
Fabio, welcome to TN.
A good first post with a most informative note. The image is a bit dull and the size is small. On TN the images can be up to 800 pixels wide and up to 200kb in size.
I do like the pose and composition of the image.
I have done a workshop with suggested improvements.
Hope to see more of work here.
I like this shot very much, not only because of the animal itself, but because it looks like you've taken this shot at dusk, capturing this wild animal in a very good position. Now, I'm perplex about the fox shade on the ground, created by a high placed light source and the overal darkness of your photo (highly filtered sunlight, full moon?). Your info about this breed is very interesting, but some photographic issues would help to understand.
Welcome on TN Fabio.
Very nice first post - a little dark as I see it. Very good, informative note.
