Hungry for the Wild II by Erael71 Hungry for the Wild II by Erael71
After several comments of "Rule of Thirds" and over / underexposures I went back to manipulate this photo. Please let me know if I am on the right track.

Comments welcomed.

This is so cool! ^^ I love the way the foreground is so sharp, but the background is blurred.

I think you have edited this well. The little boost in colour on the animals face is great.

The tighter crop is also good. Though I have to agree with Moosplauze in terms of putting the space in front of the animal as such.

Hopefully I might have been slightly helpful :)

Thanks and now looking at it again I agree about the positioning.

I am not sure how to feel about the editing work. Especially since I am still at beginners level in photography and I really don't want to sound like a smartass or anything, so judge for yourself if my "advice" is helpful to you or whatever ;)
Well, looking at the original I suggested to apply the rule of thirds, what you did here. One of the things about that rule though is, to rather give animals space in front of them, then behind them, meaning to put the wolf in the lower right corner, which would also be good, since he is looking into the left direction and the viewer can see in the photo, what about he is looking at (ok, there is no yummy rabbit, but we can see some kind of open space he is gazing upon...). I can see, that the blurred leaf in the bottom left might hinder a good application of the rule of thirds.
I actually thought the bleached trees blended in very nice with his fur color and gave the photo a very nice atmosphere, I am not a huge fan of the higher saturated colors in the new version.

Ok, that's what I think, I wonder what others might have to say about this, since it is always about taste and whatever, so don't worry about taking my advice too seriously.

Have a nice day and a good start into 2012! :)

I appreciate all feedback so don't worry about it. Like you I am at the entry level and I feel that everything can be expanded upon. It seems like you have done a bit more reading than I have or taken a class or two. With that said I like to experiment to see the "what else" I can do. Like you mentioned art is in the eye of the beholder. The photo was taken in June 2011 and it is hard to remember the exact colors but with the higher saturation I do believe that the colors are closely represented to that day, but I have been wrong before.

I haven't read about 1/100th of what I would like to read about photography and photo editing, there is just so very much out there. I actually only read the wikipedia article about the "rule of thirds", which is quite good. And a class would be nice too, but I really don't have enough time. But I am well satisfied with sharing and viewing art here on DA, because from conversations like this we can all learn to improve. :)
