Great shot!
Beautiful animal captured very well. Very good POV and details. Beautiful colours.
Well done!

Spectacular picture. I can feel the fur.

Bonjour Luc, je comprend que tu l'aime, elle est si belle. La pose qu'elle a sur cette photo est incroyable. Le niveau de détaile de cette image est "wondefull".
Bien joué

That's a great pose, Luc, a resting fox !
Really good shot with fine colours, light and textures

Beautiful red with her pointed black-edged ears. And she's watching you Luc. Her fur is so real, and I love the look in her eyes. Well done.

There is probably not much left for me to say, however, I really like this photo. While you did your usual excellent job of getting beautiful detail, color, lighting, composition and textures (as Hans has said), I especially love the mood of it. You keep outdoing yourself Luc! Thanks for sharing.

Very nice Luc! Excellent sharpness, detail, color & the POV & pose make this capture GREAT! Well done!!!

Luc, amazing shot, very nice POV pose.

Congratulations on this.

Perfect sharpness and composition. To me, an artistic shot.

One of your best shot LUC, I would even take the risk to cut the hears, just to keep the eye.
Well done.

Another stunning image Luc. The sleepy pose is excellent and gives a real feeling of intimacy. Very well done.

Lovely shot Luc,
You've got a great series of this fox. Great detail, colour and clarity.
Nice composition
Thanks for posting

The return of potrait master!
Excellent expresive detail you show to us. I like the tight crop. Your tech. skills are incredible with that cam, Luc, I dont care to repeat it.
Thanks for sharing.

Today I go for this one Luc,
Very nice point of view, very good details in the shot, and yes the eyes are important to capture in a shot like this, very good work

My Friend
I love your "Lady in Red", She has a lovely twinkle in her eye, and she also has her own fur coat, and warm scarf to protect the nose against the cold.
I like the way she is looking up at you - did you ask her for the dance?
Good POV, leading to her eyes!
Super Image, Luc

WOW! Amazing shot, Luc. The warm colors and the pose, sharpness, POV and compo all perfect. This is truly an exceptional capture. Very well done.

Excellent pose well captured. Lovely "golden spiral" (golden mean) type composition. Found yet another favourite in your portfolio ;-)
