She is looking like a llama with her frustrated face! Ha ha! There is a stick on the right of her ear that I might remove, as it looks like it is sticking her. Being picky, I might brighten her catch lights a bit. I have had amazing luck with the latest version of Topaz DeNoise, and that might help with a bit of the noise in the background and the fur (if you own it).   Posted: 02/04/2021 21:19:07

I did some retouching.... I found it difficult to do a "perfect" job at erasing!

Yes, retouched better with stick gone.

I agree with Brenda, removing the stick was a good idea and has made the shot. Well captured, love the ears paying attention. The soft background has enabled the llama to stand out nicely.   Posted: 02/06/2021 18:50:21

Pierre, this is the result after a little cleaning and a slight cropping. It makes the Deer stand out on the white background.   Posted: 02/09/2021 20:48:53

Pierre, thanks for removing the stick. And I think Isaac went one better removing the dead brush. Fun photo!   Posted: 02/12/2021 19:46:35

Nice capture of the doe in the snow. Removing the stick on the right certainly helps the image. The nose is sharp, but the focus seems to fall of on the face and eyes. Using the texture, clarity and dehaze sliders in the Camera Raw Filter may improve the focus. I agree with Brenda that the eyes need to be enhanced.   Posted: 02/10/2021 13:26:28

The doe is nice and sharp with detail in the eyes. It has been greatly improved by removing the twig next to the left ear.   Posted: 02/12/2021 13:55:31

The changes you made (in the later edits) was really nice changes. I think the removal of the stick was a good addition. The eyes could be enhanced but personally I think it is great where it currently is. I especially enjoy the white background version because it really brings out the black in the eyes.   Posted: 02/17/2021 11:33:31
