Do horns qualify as a rack?

this is a great wildlife shot, you should submit it in the wildlife forum if you have not already

Excellent shot!

One observation is that there is a bluish cast. I have seen some examples of this camera having that bias and I guess I am hypercritical of this camera in that I see it here.

Nonetheless, a great shot of a very beautiful, rugged animal.

Ya, for sure there's the little blueish tinge, but this is my tweaking. I had a very overcast day, and just spruced up the saturation to allow the detail in the hair and horns to come up a bit. The original was very nice, but I felt it needed a bit of "something" to liven it up. I have a very nice string of shots from this fine specimen and I'll post some right off the flash card so you guys can offer your advice. Thank you to all for looking and commenting...happy trails,

KennethD

this is typical of the bland colors due to the overcast day...absolutely untouched. The blue tinge is absent, Ibelieve that I put it in by processing.

Or maybe you still see it? Here I've processed that shot...may I humbly point out this guy was massive! I know that's nothing to do with the photo technique, but...I tell ye I was very happy to have him pose for me. Best regards,

KennethD

Hey Kenneth,

Nice looking animal, I like the first shot best as it doesn't show the fence and has a nice pose. I have given your unedited shot a go. Adjusted levels, tried to take out the color cast. Desatureated the cyan channel to about -50, selected his face and rack using the lasso tool, this allows adjustments to that area only. I then desaturated all the cyan and blue to -100. This took all of the blue cast away where it was most noticable. I tried a little sharpening, but it didn't turn out the greatest, unsharpmask not being my strongest tool. Deleted from my HD. Any better?

Here's that first shot with pretty much the same changes. All could be done better on your originals. Do you see any difference? If not, you might want to get your monitor checked. Nice shots.

Here is a try for the sharpening job, I hope you don't mind if I took your already modified pic, GoCubs.

What do you say Kennethd?


Cheers,
Th.
