Hey guys, here are a few shots I took the other day while driving trough Montana.

Please feel free to comment and critique. I would really love any advice people have for shooting in snow.

I tried a few different processed to get rid of the blue hue in the background but didn't get it done....

Great shots, especially with the high contrast.
Take this as constructive criticism, and it may not be possible with wildlife shots, but try to compose such that there are no wood piles or fences, etc. that connect with the subject.

Either wait for the animal to move or you change your vantage point.

Sometimes, this happens to me and I don't catch it until looking at it in PSE.

Thumbs up to that!

Otherwise, great color tone/white balance in these photos.


"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "moot point", NOT "mute point".

I agree with scottkinf, and for me they are cropped to closely. Great captures though.

Thank you for the kudos guys !!

I would have loved to have captured these shots without all of the fencing and stuff but I mean they were literally on the side of the road LOL. There was also a mini junkyard right behind them so that is why the crops are a little tighter. Thank you for the comments on composition and background as well, I have really been trying to work on that, just needs more practice. It's amazing how I get excited and start firing away on my subject and forget to see big picture. (pun intended)

I did get some 8 x 10 and a 6 x 9 prints of these from Mpix and they really did a good job. Of course I didn't notice until I got them back that I must of had some snow spray on my lens and there were little bubbles in the shot. Too late to clone em out :(

Was this from Hwy 200 between Plains and T Falls? Lots of sheep there but I never have my camera when I need it. Only live 1 hr from there and need to spend the day but you never know when they will be close. We lose many to cars and trucks because people don't slow down on the 13 mile stretch of road.


May there be peace

Great shots. Saw some Big Horns in Idaho but wasn't close enough to get any good pictures.

It was in between West Yellowstone and Ennis on Hwy 287. Here is a link to Google maps so you can see where they were taken at in relation to the area.
