[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Hmmmm not to sure how to spell this animal. It belongs to the llamma family. A ggod shot considering I only use 28-80 mm but the secret weapon was the dog that seemed to adopt me, I think this Vicunia was more interested in the dog then me ! Not one to miss a chance I got this photo

Hi Simon,such a stark looking landscape but nice just the same.The only thing about this photo that could use improvement is the harshness of the snow covered parts of the the background mountains,the brightness is just too distracting.I think the critter is an alpaca which like you said is a relative of the llama.

Dear Simon,
I discover this picture with interest. I is beautifully composed and the foreground is a wild animal (a Guanaco, maybe I'm not sure). You are a lucky man to make such good pictures.

The photo is not perfect on my screen ( it varies from screen to screen, I know): the sky is somewhat grainy, the white mountains overexposed, the shadows dark. I propose a workshop to take care of these issues. I hope you like it. If not, no harm done!
My best regards,
Dietrich
