About the Image(s)

This image was taken a few days ago at the Rapid City, SD Reptile Garden with my I-Phone 11 Pro Max Live View setting. The lower right corner has a partial view of a under ground plastic viewing bubble which I cropped out as well as the top third of the shot. Post processing was done using the camera edits of
exposure, brilliance, highlights, shadows, warmth, definition and noise reduction. Apple apps for Snap Seed and Retouch were used to tweak and resize the image.

Your prairie dog is very cute, but the image is not sharp, probably because your iPhone doesn't have enough pixels to allow for that much cropping. But even in the original, the straw in front of the prairie dog is sharper than it is. When you take pictures with an iphone, I think it's best to get close enough to avoid too much cropping, or else find an angle where there is enough background interest to avoid the need to crop much.

It is a cute image and centering works. Cropping is effective although perhaps more at the bottom and less at the top would be a little better. I don't worry about less than tack sharp.

Good photo
