I don't get to shoot wildlife much (living in the Midwest doesn't help) but I made a trip to a big cat rescue center yesterday to try it out. I had to shoot through the fence which can be a challenge. Any (constructive) advice on how to make these pop a little more or things to change?

I agree with the two posters above me. Not sure what else you need to "pop" about them. They're both very impressive shots. You really get a sense of their size and strength as well.

I liked youre edit of the OP's shot. The fence being gone really did help. There's just two spots to the left of the tree behind him that are a bit distracting. They look sharper and brighter than all the areas around them.

Thanks! That is great! You know, I had subscribed to that thread but I have been so busy lately I haven't had a chance to do it yet but that shows me it is definitely worth doing. I love shooting at that place but always hated the fences, now it won't be so much of an issue.

Good call. Using the brush, it would probably be fairly easy to bring down the exposure in those areas until it blends in with everything else.

Thanks for the replies. That is a pretty unique place here in the Midwest and now that I know how to get rid of the fences I will try to clean up a few more good ones and post them sometime.
