About the Image(s)

This photo was taken In Hayden Valley in Yellowstone National Park. It was early in September 2021.
It was early morning and I had my Nikon D500 on a tripod as I watched and photographed this exciting event. This buffalo herd was partaking in breeding rights fighting. I watched as the loser left the herd.
My settings were ISO 640 because of low light of early morning, 500MM, f 7/1, ans 1/640 sec SS.
I used LR to do basic adjustments and opened it up in PS where I cropped and used adjustment layers to burn and dodge.

Quite a shot! I like the two extra buffalo in the upper right but the one just behind the two fighting is a distraction. The stirred up dirt makes it more dramatic.   Posted: 10/10/2021 21:11:16
