Fred, just so you know, you're getting into a controversial subject. There is a group of wildlife photographers who work hard at getting good images of animals in the wild. They are often undercut by folks who shoot captive wild animals in preserves that are set up for tourist photography and sell the images as caught in the wild, which they feel is really dishonest and undercuts the business of the real wildlife togs. (Yeah, this does sound a bit like the discussion about amateurs shooting sports in the "Off-Limits" thread going on here.) I'm not saying you're trying to do that, just that depending on who you're talking to, it's a sensitive subject.

Personally I like the first one better - it's more real. That may be because your edited one looks edited to me. And I really like the original photo.

Ted

Thanks for the info Ted.
An interesting topic.
You are right. The origional one is a better picture.
My attempt at a photo edit looks cheap.

I will leave the photos alone .
Maybe one day I will shoot a Wolf or Grizzly in the wild.
It's on my Bucket list
They are only an hours drive from my place.

Fred..

Another shot of the wolf. Too bad for the branch in the way.

If you get out to shoot one in the wild, I'd really like to see the photos.

Branch or not, another good photo of a beautiful animal.
