As promised, here is part 2. More wild side of the park.

Some nice pics Arzki and lovely subject matter. My only comment that I would make is that maybe the pics are a little on the dark side. Tending to make them appear dull!! I feel a little more Brightness and Contract along with a touch of colour management to make the pics jump of the page would add considerably. Also consider using a wider aperture to put the background more out of focus, also helping the subject to stand out more.
However, that is just my opinion and I trust you will take the comment as genuine feedback.
Keep up the good work

Thank you Mark for your feedback. All comments that help me improve my photography are most welcome.
You are right about the pic being on the dark side. There is a good reason for that. The shooting took place in a forest like environment, on a winter afternoon day, so the natural light has been already diminished.
I have been using my 55-300mm lens, to be able to get closer to the subjects. It’s f/4.5-5.6 didn’t help in the environment setting, so I was using shutter speeds of 1/30 or even 1/20.
I have abandoned for non specific projects to use RAW photography, so I was shooting fine jpg. I have adjusted the levels and the curves of the lightning a bit. Apparently not enough 🙂
Anyway, this stroll in the park has been more of a Christmas walk, not a real shooting expedition. I have recently relocated to Germany and this park is just 7km from me, so I will have plenty of time to explore this type of shooting with different lenses and different light settings.
