Fox on the beach

Critique Style Requested: Standard

The photographer is looking for generalized feedback about the aesthetic and technical qualities of their image.


My husband and I were in our dinghy returning from a morning walk when I spied this critter on the beach. It was much later in the morning than I would usually like to take photos, but I couldn’t let this opportunity slip by as I don’t see fox very often.

Specific Feedback

The colours were not good, so I thought I would try black and white, however it still looks flat to me and I don’t know if there is a way to give it some “life”.

Technical Details

Sony a7riv 200-600mm 1/2000 @F6.3, iso 640, 459mm

Processed in Lightroom Classic using linear and radial gradients along with local adjustments.

Very crisp and clear. The fox stands out nicely amidst the grass texture. I’m not so great at processing so these comments are just personal preference… I feel that the vignette is too strong. I also wonder about cropping it some. Nice capture.
