This is a gorgeous photo of a majestic creature :) It's a great setting be it the wilderness or some kind of habitation. It really reminds that even though it seems wolves are always seem to be fierce and energetic animals, they still take time for peace and time to relax such as all life does. The face is really highlighted with great shadow and lighting on the nuzzle area which really defines the fur, the same can be said the majority of their body. Unfortunately there is one flaw that seems to spoil this, I'm uncertain if this by the cameras settings or the actual scene itself, I'm referring to the haze that seems to be all around this photo, which is clearly evident towards the lower half and in the shadows of the log which really dulls down the colors of the photo and makes it appear slightly faded, I would suggest if you have any editing software to use them to richen the colors, it will really bring all your photos to life :)
There is 2 things which I will point out if you wish to bring your photography to a new level :) the focus seems really off, the log in the background is in great focus but the wolf, being the intended subject, is blurred in comparison along with the wolf's face and eyes which is the most important feature as I'm sure you know, lastly the contrast is a bit high mainly seen with the log at the back right which is a little distracting creating a dazed effect, this can also be fixed with a simple editing program though :)
Overall it's a nice shot! The wolf looks very majestic~ :)

Well what a great photo of a fox (correct me if I'm wrong)! I may not be a good photographer, but I do have some constructive criticism which could/may perhaps improve the quality of shots similar to this.

In all honesty, I think that your shot is lacking composition and a lack of depth of field which greatly affects this shot. The missing foreground and blended mid/background really made the picture feel flat and 'impact-less' in terms of the final shot. Adding more foreground and mixing the mid/background more adds a more dynamic atmosphere towards the shot in my opinion.

Also, I'm guessing this was either taken at the zoo or your camera lens was bad but it has a glare-y, reflective composure on top of the picture, like another layer of glass or fog was on the lens. That really made the shot seem less 'attractive'. Something you should keep in mind would be little things like this which would also greatly affect the shot.

Otherwise, don't give up and keep working hard! :iconthumbsupplz:

It would be nice to own a pet wolf. Even if you love wolfs. I'm more of a wolf guy then a vampire guy.
