    Hi all ...
    my first ever posted and decent shot of this species . Nothing exciting to be honest .... but still worth posting IMHO.
    Image taken in the overcast afternoon of my recent Netherland quick trip .... to Zandvoort , wanted to shoot Foxes there at that location but no Foxes has been present .

    THanks for looking and commenting to my last postings

    Cheers Andreas

    A nice, natural frame Andreas, with realistic surrounding and colour, however when I saw the thumbnail I thought too much to the LHS but viewing FF it's fine as the deer is looking into the space. Having the light backdrop behind the rack lifts them nicely which helps display them. I might add some Grading in the Shadows & Midtones, personal preference. Just wonder if you had the opportunity after getting this frame just to drop the height slightly so you were just a fraction lower.

    Thanks Steve .... you talk about color or tonal grading ? Overall or just subject ? What would be the benefit , in your eyes ?

    Going lower would have been easily possible , but then there was the light grey boring sky .... in the frame . So i opted for this framing . I understand your first reaction about the comp ... but i thought leave the LHS as shot , albeit i think with the head turned even more would have been better so i was ending up with an acceptable compromise .

    If you like , check my squirrel RP .... and leave your thoughts in that thread

    Cheers Andreas

    BTW i might receive a new editing toy today .... the Loupedeck CT . Will try that out if it does work for me .... instead of using shortcuts inside PS/ Capture one .

    Slightly deeper tones perhaps.

    Indeed, but you would have an option, however the rack might also then be in the green too...

    It's fine as is.

    Ok Steve ... here you go , a simple channel blending to red and green channel through masks . Mid tones revceived multilpy and the 3/4 tones received a soft light blend . not at full strenght .

    WDYT ?

    Cheers Andreas

    It's a totally different method to Lr so can't really say, there you can change a variety of options, RP was worth a punt, but WDYT?

    I was originally quite happy with the OP , but the marginal edit of the RP is a good move . Thanks for pointing it out ...

    Andreas, I am back on line now!! I like the fallow deer original, the repost looks remarkably similar i.e the difference is marginal. Looks good as presented, if anything I may consider lowering the overall brightness a little but that's about all.
