Mood and beautiful winter pictures,Janice.
Well done.
Thanks for sharing.


beautiful wildlife capture. nice background. good work

Hello Janice,

Beautiful photograph of this Elk. Excellent view; mainly like the way he/she is looking inside the frame. I haven't visited such snowy/icy area, so don't not sure about the right white balance on ice, but to me look like little bit BLUISH. But not sure,.....you were there, you know better than me the situation.
Splendid work....
Thanks for sharing,

Hello Janice

Beautiful winter scenery of the Wapiti with fine POV at
its level obtaining its head turned eye-contact with you, TFS


Hello Janice,
Cute picture of this Wapiti in winter conditions. It looks surprised and the eye contact is very attractive. Excellent sharpness and beautiful natural colors, although it is a bit bluish. I made a simple WS. Hope you like it.

Hello Janice,
An attractive female elk displayed in a wonderful pose as it munches on dried grasses. It appears very relaxed as it keeps a watchful eye on you. It has such a beautiful coat and the colors are true and natural. Nicely focused and showing great eye contact.

Hi Janice,
Peter is right about the disturbing blue cast. Your pic deserves a beter presentation. The workshop of Peter might not be fully convaincing but keep in mind there is no way getting good results working starting from a small size jpg pic. You should have good results trying from the original.
