This is what I meant in the comment. vertical frame and un-centering for a better composition. Of course, to do with the camera and not in pp work.
Best regards.

Facing the edge of the frame is always less good.
Note that you were right to post the scene as it was. I'm posting this to explain it would have been beter if the impalas would have been standing differently in the real scene. Not to encourage digital manipulation. Thought not allowed there are many digitally manipulated shots on TN and it's a pity.

Hi Laurens,
I changed the composition. Subject shouldn't be centered. Vertically frame is too close (even truncating the subject below) while horizontally the irrelevamt areas on the side are too large. I balanced the distance subject-to-frame vertically vs horizontally. I slightly uncentered the subject below and right.
Of course the proper way is to shoot it right, not to photoshop it as I did.
(I removed the yellow cast too)
Regards
Jean-Marie

Hi Laurens,
Excellent shot of these fungi. Somehow a little flat and brownish. I did some levels on your pic.
duplicate layers/autolevels/opacity of upper layer reduced to 72%

- i changed the format to 4/3 removing this way a large part of the irrelevant area on the left
- It was still too centered to my taste. So I crop some of the left and add area on the right (clone brush. Of course it's better to think about it while shooting and move the camera to the right)

I presented a crop for TN because all detailed are lost from the original (here) if not presented in HD. I like the original beter.

un peu terne et aspect rose.
J'utilise d'habitude "curve", "contrast", "cast", etc.
Ici "autolevel" a lui seul a resolu en 1 clic tous les problemes.

I rotated the pic 3 degree CCW in order to restaure the horizontal.
