Variation of earlier shot.

Not really one for cropping from Portrait to Landscape or vice-versa, but just comparing the effect of the image to see if I visit again and get such an opportunity presented which creates the stronger image.

Originally I chose to shoot portrait because no one else was and I thought I would get a differrent result. Also if you shoot landscape and cropped you would not regain the trees in the background, if you see what I mean.

Think this one is even better than the portrait version. Just excellent.

Both images are great for different reasons, I do prefer the landscape version. Emphasis is on the wolf without any distractions but still showing a natural terrain.

Thanks all.

I guess in some ways the question is answered, however, I personally like the portrait version simply because it is different, and you never know one day someone might want a magazine cover Grin

OK so I have more chance of winning the Euromillions tonight, but it doesn't hurt to be optimistic.

David thanks for the UA, appreciated.

This has been, or still is, a fantastic series of wildlife images Cheryl.
I am not sure what would give the greater buzz...seeing them or photographing them Smile
Perhaps one has to act like a doctor and get on with the togging, without the exhiliration of the event, clouding ones camera skills..if you get my drift.

Having looked at both, I think this one is marginally stronger. The space in front of the wolf, that he's looking into, seems more relevant to me than what's behind him. OK, so this has no more space in front than the portrait version did but there is less space behind. Smile
