Another Wow. What a trip. Great catch and well done. I might have lightened the face and enhanced the eye.   Posted: 01/04/2022 11:28:46

Overall, the dark contrast, sharpness adds emphasis to the cold. The frozen snow on their backs and frost on the shrub in front contribute to the cold

You caught a glimmer in the eye of the Buffalo. If you lightened it up--a bit too much--in the fur around his eye, can you bring back the color in the fur around his eye somewhat--just keeping the spec of light in his eye. Having spent 8 days shooting in Yellowstone I know how hard it is to catch any definition in their eyes at all.   Posted: 01/08/2022 15:22:16

Hi Cynthia, I love Yellowstone and really appreciate how hard it is to get the bison to cooperate and get a good shot. Like trying to get a beagle to stop sniffing the ground. I really think you have captured the feeling of a frigid day in the park. I don't know if you captured the rest of this animal, but I might look to see if you have his tail. I took your image into PS, and cloned out the second animal, and the longer white thing on his shoulder. Really a nice animal image.   Posted: 01/09/2022 12:49:06

Yes, they don't always stay in the right position for one to get that "great" shot....too bad you didn't wait a few minutes for him to take a step forward so that all of his body was in the photo, or pulled back to get all of him....I think Bob did a great job removing the second animal, making the main animal more dominant...Love the rim "lighting" of the snow on his back and head....   Posted: 01/09/2022 23:37:38

Always wanted to go to Yellowstone in the winter, but pandemic problems rule that out at the moment. As you did not get the whole of the animal in the shot, it might be a good idea, as well as taking out the second animal, to concentrate on the front half, and make a square format to the picture. It could only be an open image, as it would not fulfil Nature image requirements.   Posted: 01/11/2022 06:27:36

Very nice and love the frost on him. It would be better to have the entire animal and I like removing the one in the background. I agree that if you don't have the entire animal, crop to make it more of a portrait and feature his beautiful head.   Posted: 01/12/2022 10:21:09
