Very good opening photo!
Great composition and colours. I love this contrast between this beautiful animal and very interesting BG.
Very well done!

Welcome to TN Don!

Beautiful opening photo. White wolf. Proud and great looking. Also - background is superb - looks like sky full of fire from sunset. Pity that note is so short :-(

Sorry, points tomorrow.

Very good shot Don.
Well exposure, good details, and nice colours.
Very well done.
Welcome to TN.

A very valuable documentary picture... Perfect composition and background, bravo Don.

I added my favorites...

Welcome to TN, Don. You've catched this beautiful wolf in a typical hunter pose, on a perfect background. Very good point of view. I like the leg bended. A heavier file and larger frame would give a better definition on the details, specially on the fur texture. Some notes on the animal and shooting conditions would be appreciated. I've added your shot in the canidae theme.

Don, superbe prestation sur les plans du sujet, de la netteté, de la composition et du rendu des couleurs. Où avez-vous pris cette photo? Il est pratique courante sur TrekNature de présenter une note explicative. Bravo et bienvenue sur TN!

Excelent capture of the wolf. A beauty he is. I like the background as well.
Well done on this composition.
In photoshop or alike, you can lower the hue/sat, cyan slider. This will rid of the blue hue on the snow and wolf caused by digital.

Very nice...dramatic backdrop with early or late day light is the perfect foil for this wolf. I would like to know if this was photographed on a private reserve or in the actual wild. Thanks.

Beautiful picture. That background seems the perfect match for the white wolf. I too would like to see more info/details about this shot!

Good shot Don. Good composition but I can see the netting on the BG behind this wolf.

Welcome to TN Don,
That's a great first post stunning contrast between the wolf and the BG. You can post until 800Px
Very well done.

Hi Don and a hearty welcome to TN
Beautiful, the "burning" BG is great aginst the white FG and a splendid wolf - Great POV with the head held low and the piercing eyes, Well done, and TFS.
Remember the notes, they are part of the picture to tell us about the scene, the conditions, and the -40 degrees C or F?

Superb shot, I want one!!

Witam . Rewelacyjna fotka dobra kompozycja, wspania³e t³o wielkie brawa!

Wow, great capture. the contrast between wolf, snow and background is really nice. You did well to control the exposure here, revealling excellent detail. Excellent POV.

The best picture of wolf I've seen!
Thanks for share.

Fantastique ce loup qui marche la tête basse, avec un air un peu piteux.. mais surtout cet arrière plan orangé est si chaud et fait ressortir la fourrure d'une façon incroyable.
J'ai mal lu le titre "last light" je croyais que c'était "last night" comme si le loup revenait d'une soirée un peu fatigué...!

great pic to see in the middle of summer, TFS Ori
