What a lovely, striking animal. I really like the calm, powerful stare he's giving you, and may I say that getting such a direct look from any animal (especially wild or semi-wild) is so dang challenging!

The colors also add to the image, inspiring thoughts of freedom and wilderness and racing through the forest. This fellow could be the main topic in lots of images, but I could see him resting at the feet of a queen, a god, or being utterly tumbled over by forest faeries! Very good job on this as a complete piece, and the only word of advice I could think to give is that when you upload to the stock category, it is helpful to all of us manipulators that the image be in original colors. With it already in sepia-tone, it can be difficult to recapture subtle nuances of color in shade and highlights. But as a finished piece, this would get an A+ from me!

Thank you very much for your kind critique and for delivering insight into the creative head of a manipulator or drawer =) As a stock photographer it's sometimes really hard to appraise the needs of those who use our photos. So much the better to get critique from you!

In fact, I haven't changed the colours - just contrast, brightness and light intensity. But I've realised that with these adjustments the red colours came out very strong. So I've already turned them back but maybe not enough. Will remember it for the next time! =)

So thank you again :heart:
