He's a Ram,his name is Dodge. He's young so he's only a 2 wheel drive. When he grows up he will be a 4 wheeler.

Nice, clear shot.. makes for a very nice portrait of this fine beast.

Good good detail, as well.


Suggestion, more so.

Go back with a Soft Brush/Burn Tool on a separate/duplicate Layer.. with respect to and in around the outline of the ram ... and employing a very low setting for Exposure (1%? 2%? to start) ... Burn in the area to blend it some more. (Some 'haloing' has crept into the image.)

Going through the options of Highlights, Mid-tones, and that of Shadows.. individually. See which or what combination works best to your eyes (erhm.. eye?).

That said..

Nice one. :o)

p.s. Took a third look.. have another suggestion, 'cause.. well, you know ... I am full of them. :oP

Selective Colour Adjustment Layer.

Seems to me that you already have the ram selected and separated (unless it is the change in Contrast that I am detecting ... if so, should be very easy to make a selection of the ram itself).

So.. working with the background only ... choose the Neutrals ... add some White. Might even be more preferable to the above suggestion of using the Burn Tool.

Guessing that you did this in HDR and in turn, lost some of the White of the background snow in the process.

p.p.s. Forget the Selective Colour Adjustment. Just noticed that I had my monitor's brightness and contrast turned down.

See? Told ya.. fulllll of ... 'stuff'.

Has an elegant pose with very nice details. Love the minimal background complimenting it. Light in his eye is a pleasure to see. Saved to look at more.
