Hey Joe, good to see you're out and about; I haven't gotten out *nearly* enough this season.

Of the first two, the second one's a little better because of the light on the breast highlighting his patterning better. In both of them, you should check on your darks/blacks levels; it looks like you're a little too dark there and clipping out some color and detail in the more shadowy parts of the frames. Particularly in the cheek patches.

I agree that the second is better but I stink at post processing so I don't have any advice to offer, unfortunately, but I'll be paying attention to any that you get to see if it's useful.

Nice shots!

Thanks Eric I will give it a try I suck at post processing
