[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A Visit from a small opossum looking for a late night snack was treed by one of our dogs, which made for a great photo opportunity.

Photo was converted to LAB color and the A and B channels Steepened to drive the colors of the tree apart. the moderate sharpening was applied to the luminosity channel and converted back to RGB.

Pretty creature and brilliant shot! Wonderful composition. Fantastic job!
Thank you very much for sharing, Mark, and welcome to TN.

Hola Mark,
Bienvenido a TN! Un animalito muy similar al que tenemos por estos lados. Me gusta como observa entre las ramas. Soloun poco fuera de foco la zona del hocico.

Welcome to TN, Mark.
What a cute capture of this little guy.
Great pose and composition.
I like the eye contact and the way his hands are holding on to the branch.
Clear details and good light.
Thank you for sharing. : )

Very cute pose and expression.
A sharper nose would have been a plus.
Flash pics are less good but it is not disturbing in that particular case. Well done.
I did not understand the PP work you explained. I wish to learn and probably need to buy the book for that. Could you publish the original pic in a workshop? It would be useful to me.
