I think it's safe to say that we're all animal lovers and photograhers from beginners on up and will like your shots.  Do your best and keep posting and welcome.

First post to forums.
Picture taken last fall. Fox was really curious and followed me around about an hour.
Got few pictures of him and this was the best of all of them. Rest of the pictures he had a weird pose or I missed focus.
Will update camera settings later when back at computer.
Wonderful picture! Welcome to the forum.
The best camera is the one in your hands

hi ifp!
and welcome.

Nice picture.

What did you do in PP?
IMHO, the colors seem to be a little too much pushed.
If you didn't do anything to the colors, forget my comment.
Otherwise it's always a question of taste. For me, a little bit too much.
The rest ist very well.

First, I appreciate the feedback. I'm always looking to improve, especially in post processing. Honestly, it's my least favorite part of photography, probably because I'm not very good at it.

The original was overexposed. Looking at my lightroom settings... Adjustments were -1 to exposure, and my standard settings are applied, which means Camera Standard calibration and +10 to vibrance and +10 to saturation. Now that I've stared at it for a bit, I think the white balance could be a touch warmer. Modified version attached.

Thank you for that, because mine was without being asked. But I couldn't hold it back.

Same to me, at both points (least favorite, not very good)

I think it is looking better now. Although I recognize just minor changes.

Thank you for paying attention to my opinion.
