Just came back from Costa Rica and ran into an Ocelot in the rain forest. I only had a brief second to get off 1 shot. Not sure if this image is OK enough to edit and make it look viewable (I'm not an editing expert) but would appreciate any touches anyone could add to make this somewhat nice. Thank You.

I think that you'll get a better response if you put the RAW (best option) or the full size image in a downloadable place like Dropbox.

+1 for the RAW file. Looks like a fun edit.

This is where I get lost. Not familiar with dropbox. Is that something I need to register for? I do have a Smugmug account. Not sure if that works. I also have the RAW file.

Dropbox.com is free for up to 2gigs. Or maybe 1 gig?
Easy to use.

yes you did it right, is this the sort of thing you're after? A couple of minutes in Darktable. I'm sure better renditions are forthcoming :)

Also, not fantastic, but tough to save something that dark, too.

What software do you have for editing?
