Menacing nothing - these are delightful creatures who live in harmonious family groups and hunt cooperatively only in order to eat. This is a lovely portatit of a noble creature. Well done.

Thankyou for the comments everyone.
Lynne I agree; I just hope this guy doesn't get seriously injured when one of the younger males decides it's time to take over leading the pack.
I've now seen this on a 2nd monitor where it seems to have a slight green cast; so I've added #3 - is that any better?

I can't distinguish between V1 and V3 on my laptop, Tim.

It's quite subtle on my laptop Bill, but when I see it on a desktop monitor there's a distinct green cast discernable in #1. I checked the original and the white of the sky does have a slight bit of green which I've corrected for #3 and on the desktop monitor it also makes the wolf seem "cleaner" and "right" too.

Yeah I think the adjustment on V3 works a lot better, great capture, he's certainly keeping his eye on you.

Thankyou everyone for all the encouraging comments.

I included #2 because I originally came so close to discarding the shot because it was so dark, but now think it's one of my favourites of the dozen or so I took. Now I just need to learn to get the photo right in the first place!

(The change to #3 is fairly subtle and doesn't seem to show up too much on some laptop screens; great if so, but I've added some comments with the version of what to look for)

It's said that when a wolf looks at you it looks at your soul!
You can see why with this awesome shot Tim. Wonderful pose and very well processed. Must admit if I'd have taken one that dark I would have binned it. Very nicely done to keep all the detail.

Thankyou everyone for the comments.
I agree that he does look a little sad, but this wasn't an impression I got when I was there and think it's the result of catching him just as he spotted me; he seemed more on guard for the pack, keeping an eye out whilst they snoozed

This is a very good capture. I never bin the dark ones, because I also shoot in RAW - it's amazing what you can recover. I also find it easier to recover from and under- rather than an over-exposure. But, you are right; try to get the shot correctly exposed the first time!
There is a very subtle difference between v1 and v3, but it's not enough to worry about unless you are comparing the two shots.
I just recently got the Spyder3 calibration tool - at least I know that what's on my screen is the right color.
