Hi Jan,
Great portrait of this wolf! I'm surprised this was taken at the zoo. It looks like it was done in the wild. Very good sharpness and DOF. I would clone out the reflection of the flash in the eyes however. But still a wonderful shot, bravo!
PS. I added a workshop.

Wonderful sharp details, this is a lovely close up. I agree with Mike about the eyes but this is still gorgeous

Excellent portrait, Jan!
Wonderful moment, DOF and sharpness. I like his eyes.

Hi Jan,

What a great portrait shot of the Wolf, superb composition, pose and POV, the detail on the fur is nice and sharp and the colours are beautiful and natural, I see the flash has caught the eyes but Mike has done a good job in the workshop.

TFS Hilary :o)

Hi Jan.
I love wolves since I remember myself. They are my favorable animals. You managed to reflect their character perfectly. I am sure that your portrait is really out-standing. I saw more and more and feel delight. Skilful work. BRAVO.

Nice image JanArie. Good colors, nice composition. Looks as though you have a hint of animal red eye and perhaps a bit too much sharpening. Easy to correct in PS.
