[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Taken yesterday after a return to the same spot as the day before. On this trip i didn't remain undetected in the trees due to me clumsily dropping my car keys out of my bag. Although he was a about 30 metres away, i may as well have banged on a drum in the early morning quiet of the forest!
Thankfully he seemed more curious rather than nervous though and just stood and stared at me.

Slight adjustment to levels in PS due to poor light (again) and a little increase of saturation to bring out the colour of his beautiful rust coloured coat.

Thanks for looking and i hope you all had a good weekend

Hi Paul,
Nicely spotted and potentially GREAT shot but it's too bad the focus is not there. Possibly due to camera shake? Also I'm not a big fan of the center composition. Good attempt however.

Nice photo.

The composition is very good on this photograph. You have done well to get the colours out of the photo.

The only problem would be that the picture is not as sharp as it can be and therefore looses some detail.

All in all you have done well. Next time try stealth mode :-)

  • Great

Hi Paul,
Very nice shot and i like the composition. I don't know around what time you took the photo but you can usualy spot them when it is getting dark.
So well done.
