I Love My Rock

The same Bison as the last image I posted giving itself a good head scratch on a rock.

What technical feedback would you like if any?

Anything. I did a fair amount of dodging to bring out shadows on this one. Does it still look realistic?

What artistic feedback would you like if any?

Great title and excellent shot. I especially like that the eyes are closed conveying love of the rock. Reminds me of long ago when pet rocks were in style. Must be this bison’s pet rock.

Wonderful moment and great details in the fur of Bison, you may extract some more details in the shadow area.
More than the head scratch, it looks like he’s sniffing the rock.
If you have some more canvas at the bottom, it may help the frame.
