[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This shot was taken in the late evening when I was lucky to observe two bull Moose at the edge of the forest. The wind blew against me so the Moose did not get my scent, and finally they were pretty close.

Beautiful and excellent wildlife image of moose. really nice lighting you managed to take this species well in surprise. good work.

Beautiful natural color and the Moose.
Good composition and timing.
Thanks for sharing..


Dear Peter,
I think your photo would be more pleasing, if you had increased slightly the exposure to make the body of the animal a bit better visible and also increased the depth of field.
The foreground is sharper and shows more details than your main object the Moose

Thanks for sharing.

perfection in all its form. Wonderful light, spot on exposure and depth of field and a perfect composition. Haven't seen such a great photo on TN for a long time.

Hi Peter,
beautiful animal. What a presentation. Perfect point of view.
Thanks for sharing,

Hello Peter,
I am agree with "SunToucher".Really looks splendid.Mainly burning light over grasses and right side of the Moose body.BG looking little bit dark and to me it's charming and reflecting depth of the dark forest.Well captured(to me).
Thanks for sharing,

Hello Peter,
The lighting in this image is awesome. It gives a real feel of dusk, when all is still and quiet and the large animals just start to move from their hiding places.
A nice relaxed walking pose displaying stunning detail and beautiful natural colors. A real eye catching photo!!
