    Hi folks .... too many tigers in a row ....LOL .... made me envious , so i thought i counteract with a spectacular European Fox

    Image taken in the Amsterdaamse Waterleiding Duinen in the Netherlands , location is just opposite the Bison reserve of Kraansvlak . Foxes are habituated , well at least some of them , in a small area of the nature reserve .

    Hope you like it , albeit the DOF is quite small .

    Canon EOS 1Dx II
    EF 500 IS L
    HH

    F 5 ; Iso 5000 ; 1/1600 sec ; man exp and auto iso

    Processed with DPP 4 and PSC 2020 ; slight cropped from bottom and RHS

    Thanks for looking and commenting to my previous posting

    Cheers Andreas

    Nice solid portrait of this red fox. Killer background as well. Also like that intent pose. Maybe a little more behind.

    Hi Andreas, clean portrait, great 'stock' shot, (saleable).

    Agree you are absolutely on the edge, but at this size I feel you did well. Excellent bokeh, is this with the 500MKII? Well framed, nice alert pose and if you had better light lower ISO this would be right up there. I could also see perhaps a 10x8 option.
    No complains from me, nice one.

    TFS
    Steve

    PS I'm wavering, but awaiting a callback from Canon...

    Thanks John and Steve , for your kind comments .

    John have not more behind , and actually think i do not need more .

    Steve - sorry forgot to add the MKII . Your crop idea would work too , no question . Why is Canon calling you back .... did you beg ?

    Cheers Andreas

    Hi Andreas, a solid portrait indeed of the red Fox. I like the clean BG and the super profile of the fox. Good techs and I think the DOF has worked well here.

    OK, but if you get the opportunity again then I would with a bit of BKG behind and some to look into, would work as DPS (double page spread) editorial, with text in the cool backdrop.

    Hi Andreas -- Indeed these fox images are right up there with the tiger images , and higher in terms of IQ. This is another stunner, loved the clean BKG and the details in your subject.

    superbly done.

    TFS !

    Very nice indeed Andreas, I really like the eye, I like the composition but I am feeling as if i would like to have seen a little more neck - I don't really know why but there you are!.
