I like this photo, but I don't. What do you think?

Too much empty space at the top and bottom, I think. I'd give it a horizontal crop.

Great suggestion PlainLight, tried it earlier and I didn't like it as much...

That's a great crop. It expresses an isolation that would be lost with a tighter or horizontal crop. You also have great balance with the fox on the left and the weeds and shadow on the right. Great job. Don't change a thing.

By the way. How did you get a pic with the Stanley Cup?

I think you could crop off 20% from the bottom and still get an isolated feeling and a better picture.

One of the locally born guys won the cup, so he brought it to PEI. I was the suggested photographer so I got to spend 12+ hours sitting beside/standing beside/shooting it. Oddly enough, I was in Vancouver when he won it, cheering for Vancouver (since I was out there for a month prior to the finals).


Love the comments on the photo. Not sure if 20% off the bottom will do it, the tall grass adds in but will certainly try er out.

I like it

I initially thought of cropping the foreground (mainly because it's colour rather than anything else) but I think this would lose the depth of the picture.

Have you tried playing with the levels to make the snow a little more white, particularly in the foreground?

I like the photo and I think that it has potential. Cropping aside it is underexposed for my taste.

Next time have a sandwich to coax the fox into coming closer. Should be able to get him to within 10-15 feet. Oh and don't forget the memory card like I did.:(

My sister, the professional baker and cake decorator once told me that my camera takes great pics. My reply was that I thought her oven baked great cakes.:lol:

Awesome shot.

I like the setting sun providing the light to bring out the color of the fox. This captures the feeling of late winter or early spring when the ice starts to turn gray as it starts to break up.

This scene...minus the fox...is what I saw a lot of while growing up in northern Minnesota.

70-200L, 28-70L, 24-105L, 300L, 50, 10-17 fish, 2.0x TC
Image editing OK, encouraged, and expected. Thank you for helping me learn!

You could crop it down and they use CameraRaw to correct the underexposed areas of the fox. Good job though.
