Superb, Gordon!

I love poses and flecks of snow on it's wonderful fur.

Not any complaint as the Marten is perfect, but any chance you can get back some more detail in the snow? Did you shoot RAW?

I like it as it is, very simplistic, a natural white backdrop with detail in the foreground. Georgous light actually.

Nice shots! I like the white foreground/background - I think it works well for these shots.

I prefer the 2nd - the white background isn't quite so bright, and there's a little more light on its face.

Thanks for posting!

Beautiful shots Gordon!

As others have said the white background contrasts really well and adds a certain simplicity to the shots.


Regards,
Andrew.

Thanks Asher. I think I may have the RAW files yet but not to sure.
