Effective composition. Good DoF. A charming image well-taken.

This looks a bit flat and checking in levels, the histogram peaks in the middle but doesn't reach either end.
I've uploaded a mod in which I've used black and white thresholds in curves to boost the contrast and subsequently lift the colours. I also made slight adjustments using the colour balance and channel mixer to warm it up slighly and remove the slight blueness that Helban mentions above.
There's a tremendous image in there; it just needs a little help!
Hope this helps.

Bren.

Edit: Please disregard my first mod.
It was a work in progress that I'd saved and intended to discard. The second one is the right one!

A good shot that didnt need - 1.3 exposure comp at all. It would have been spot on without it. Id be interested to know why you underexposed? If you wanted wite white you need to think of overexposing.


White balance is also a little too cool, so together they work to provide a flat and dull image, with great potential.



It can all be sorted in Photoshop. Starting with establishing the black and white points using curves, this corrects BOTH colour tone and exposure.


Ive loaded a mod with a 10 X 8 aspect ratio crop, brightened the main fox's eyes, and added a little more background blur.



Hope this is helpful,



Regards



Willie
