    After a night camping in the Western Desert in Egypt, woke up and find this fella sniffin around for leftover food. Gave me a run for my money as I followed it everywhere till I got, in my opinion, my best shot of it. C&C welcome!

    thanks guys!

    I wish I had more pop in the eyes...
    will definitely try to find the original image again (I had to backup everything to format my PC) and will take a go at it...

    still trying to learn the ins and outs of photoshop...

    A very neat shot and a nightmare to expose for - brilliant light on the left and pitch black shadow on the right. Honestly I think you did make the right call with the exposure - if you have pushed for a longer exposure (for more detail and pop in the eyes) I think you would have had far too much blowout on the left side of the image.
    As it is I think the black, almost "dead" stare of the fox adds something to this image, especailly when all the colours and tone are almost black and white (But not quite)

    I thinks this shot is fantastic! Not only did you manage to capture a great pose from the fox, but the background, lighting and composition are wonderful, too!

    Your hard work and perseverance paid off, this is a good shot. Especially since the lighting conditions are such as they were.




    I am also intrigued by the fact you were camping in the Egytian dessert...care to elaborate more on that>
