Nasty Fox

By Enmark
This is Danny ,, normally the shy one ,,, yep he's named after him ,,on this occassion the light fell nicely and managed to get that banding across his face .
He's just gulping his dinner before Charlie comes back and catches him on her turf...
This is full frame and would take a crop ,,, unwillingly ,,,

There appears to be a want/ preference to crop the crap out of every image here ( main photo gallery) which I find odd. Its either fill the frame with the subject or crop the image until its below half its original size and get comment ... or.... or is it just me...

Yep this was taken xmas eve when I should have been wrapping ... I was in the dog house ....

Really like this one, the open mouth and the stare make this.
Like the framing and the foreground snow, also some cracking light. No nits from me mate Smile

An excellent capture Mark, the only suggestion I can make is to maybe balance out the brightness in the bottom corners, possibly with the lens vignetting controls in Photoshop? as they do catch my eye, especially the bottom right.
You're spot on about cropping/filling the frame on here though, I've been on here for many years and it's something we've all been guilty of during that time, it's all part of the learning process.

It's only since I've been in the company of photographers of the quality of yourself and some of your Pro friends that I've finally learned the errors of my ways and I'm now thinking a lot differently about framing in-camera whenever possible and leaving a bit more room around the subject than I used to.

You see, you can teach an old dog new tricks Wink

Well done mate.

Not wanting to crop this particular image, but I think this would have impact in a portrait format - so would have been interesting to have seen one taken that way.

If I was taking it and had the time I think I would have composed with the fox more to the right, but only because of the angle of the jaw. Sometimes of course that means missing everything Grin

I try totally to compose in camera and was explaining the other day to someone how when you are doing garden birds for example you know which way they should generally face as they will be looking towards the food. So pre-compose your shot using one of the outer focus points and don't go chasing shots when they face the other way. Less shots, but better quality results. Well in theory Wink

Taking another look and imaging the fox more to the right and I've changed my mind. Perfect as is.

Woman's prerogative!
