Una bella imagen Radu... sin dudas.
Un agradable POV con un fondo silvestre, con bellos detalles sobre el animal y correcto encuadre.

A beautiful image Radu... without doubts.
An pleasant POV with a wild bottom, beautiful details on the animal and correct frame.

It's a nice composition and lovely colours. The details are sharp, technical nothing to complain about. A minor nit though, I find the branch over the face of the moose a bit distracting.

I like soft light on your picture, Radu. Very good composition with colorfull BG. Pity that right lower corner of the picture is little chaotic. Anyway - good job!

Radu, Overall it's a great capture with a very scenic BG. I must agree that the branches rt & foreground tend to detract a bit. Still, A great shot!

Nice colour and detail on his antlers, shame his snout is behind the twigs, but you can't have everything. Good catchlight in his eye ... well done.

Nice work Radu, I've eaten moose and it's lovely, mmmm. Dinner aside I like the shot. The branch in front of the face and the brightness of the water are slightly distracting but if it were my shot I'd be very happy with it.

The moose's horns look like extensions of the bush. I really like this composition. The BG is alo perfect for this shot.

Thanks for posting
