    Moose Dribble

    While we were on our first serious day of hiking in Glacier National Park, we came across this moose eating the vegetation from the shallow bottom of Red Rock Lake. She was content to stand and pose while I changed lenses and got as close as I felt comfortable! #2 feels the strongest to me with her looking at the camera, but I'm not sure as I like them all ! These are cropped closer, ignoring the rule of thirds for the most part as it seems a strong enough subject to do so. I'd appreciate c&c on these images.

    Good work, Kerry.

    For me, number 1, despite all that water dribbling from her, isn't such a strong image compositionally. But #2 and #3 work very, very well.

    I like #3 the best because the lighting for some reason doesn't seem to be as harsh.

    All cool shots though that I'd love to be able to try.

    That's one fat and sassy moose!

    I wonder if you could get some more pop in the images using Levels and Curves. I also wonder whether you used a polarizer because I think using one would have at least minimized the distracting, spotty reflections in the water.

    I like 1 best. I think I would like it better with just a little more space. .... man they are big!

    Nice shots. #3 for me, the separation of light and dark does it I think.

    Thanks to all for your comments. Terri, this was indeed one of those fortunate moments we all look for! Donald and James, I will play with #1 re: composition and we'll see if we can improve it. Mike, I'm not familiarity with using curves..one of those things i need to learn I do have a polarizer and it was on the lens in the bag, it's wrong filter size for my 70-300. I hope to try some of your suggestions this weekend.
