European Wolf
Lupo Europeo
(canis lupus)

ENGLISH: I love this shot! Don't tell it is too dark because the important thing here is the light on the eyes.
Hope you like it, too...
I made this pic in the Bavarian Forest (wildlife area) in the X'mas day... I think it's the best gift I received!

ITALIANO: ho scelto questo scatto per la luce che riflettono gli occhi di questo bellissimo lupo che era quasi completamente in ombra.
Solo il giusto spiraglio di luce gli attraversava il muso. La fot l'ho fatta giusto il giorno di Natale, credo sia il + bel regalo che ho avuto.

Hello Andrea

Wow,well done.A wolf in the shadows is a powerful image.I love the lighting on the face illuminating the eyes.Excellent POV,he looks a little agitated at you.Well focused,and composed.Excellent shot.TFS


Hola Andrea
Una fenomenal foto de este lobo en un claro oscuro, pero esa luz sobre los ojos es especial y le da a la foto una fuerza tremenda.
Mis felicitaciones por la foto y por el ao que comienza.
Un abrazo

Salve Andrea,
this is it! I have nothing but my admiration to add.
Ciao, Dietrich

I can guess that it was a unique moment Andrea! What a great shot! I really feel envious right now ;) Wow, it almost looks like this picture is taken from a movie. I love this shadow and lightning and no, this is not too dark ;) This lightning gives a very dramatic effect to your picture. Lucky moment! Thanks,

Wow! A shot of a lifetime. How did ya manage to set the exposure so right at this moment - you were really quick to capture this dramatic light and the "don't mess with me" look. Hat's off.

Immagine molto bella e suggestiava con questo alternarsi di chiari / scuri.


TFS. Ciao, Emanuele

Impacting image Andrea... definitively.
The beauty of the carnivore enhanced by an unique light effect.

I like it a lot: composition, lighting, POV, DOF, focus, sharpness, color, background, framing and PP.

I like it: notes.

I don't like it: nothing to grumble.

Sublime presentation to include to your profuse portfolio.
Happy 2007!

Hi Andrea,
The light on the eyes is fantastic,
great shot!


accidente che foto!
complimenti Andrea, questa foto ha una luce che sarebbe impossibile riaverla anche cercandola.
