This is a Grey Wolf, Canis Lupus,
He is a member of the Mollie pack in Yellowstone and is the Alpha Male. At the time of this photo he commanded the strongest pack in the park.
This image is a repost...I am reposting because I have been trying different techniques and enhancements for the past 6 hours trying to bring the most out of it, I am wanting to use this image as one of my final images for my photoshop classes term final project.
The original image before editing is:
compare the two and let me know what you think.
I am not a huge fan of reposting images on Deviantart because It is a bit like watching re-runs on late night tv.
However using a new set of skills that I have learned since I last posted this image, I feel that I have put sufficient time and effort into this image to consider it 'remastered' rather than a 'repost' Plus i really want to get the community's feed back on this.
please be as critical and open in your critique as you would like, there are a few things about the image that I am still undecided on as to whether they benefit it or not, perhaps you can pick them out.
