Wonderful clarity in these. I was wondering if the first one was just a little over-sharpened?

Yes I agree with Donald. Probably a case for some selective sharpening to apply just to the eyes and nose not the grass etc.

yes guys you are totally right, the reason i sharpened them was...I was finding after down sizing to photobucket the shots were being compressed ..but in this case the 1st pic has been over sharpened

One walked right by me yesterday and I did not have a camera with me.

I'm stunned. These are excellent. Was the fox stuffed?
Just kidding. Seriously well done. Amazing work.

Thanks for the kind words,
the fox was hanging about in a quarry, I was working there for a couple of days replacing a floor in the office.
the lads use to throw the odd scrap out the window and the fox found a good food supply...
i took the camera on the 2nd day and just sat on the grass .the fox came for his scraps and i just started to click away...in the end the fox was laying down about 4 feet from me as i was sitting down too...its a great experience when you can get close to wild life like this

Actually John, if you look closely at the white hairs on the right side of the second one, you can see a black halo around the hairs. Conversly, there is the occasional white halo on the black hairs, particularly on the back of the first one.

If you haven't seen it as yet, take a look at this tutorial that explains what causes this and how to effectively apply sharpening.
Hope this helps!
An excellent set of images, I like them very much!
