Entry 1 of 35
   
 
The Launch       ©2019 davev
SONY ILCE-7RM3       1st place, 217 points
1/1000s, f6.3, ISO 200, 600mm, Shutter Priority, Average, no flash
 
Post-Processing: Very little, a bit of bringing up the dark areas and calming down the light areas. I did crop it to remove some distractions.       Extra Info: One shot in a series of shots of this coyote going after a meal.

    Just a quick thank you to all of the folks that took the time to comment and vote in this challenge, and for selecting my shot to be number one.

Lots of fine shots here, I'm looking forward to the outtake thread.

    Perfect timing! and excellent focus to capture all the detail in the foreground while blurring the background. I would have been tempted to crop the foreground and right a bit to make the subject more prominent.

    Perfect timing. Good sharpness. First in my favorites.

    Sometimes you catch the moment perfectly. This is one of those times. Great subject and spot on sharpness. Thanks for a great shot.

    Nice capture, and a great pose. Might like crop so the animal is not so centered in the frame.

    Theis proves that brown on brown is really good if the lighting and the shutter speed is perfect. Well done.

    Timing is everything in life. Marvelous capture. I assume this was hand-held.

    You may have seen a coyote in the out takes, but it wasn't this shot. I didn't take this shot until NOV of 2019. For that matter, it's the first time I've been able to get a shot of "The Leap" that coyotes and foxes do.
But I am the resident wildlife guy so it's probably not to hard to guess who took it. :D

    OK, sorry but I'm sure I saw this in the Outtakes so I know who's it is! This is such a wonderful nature photo, so professionally done. Everything is technically perfect and the coyote is perfectly posed. By the way, this is one healthy looking coyote. The ones that lurk in the outskirts of the city I live in are terribly thin and riddled with mange.

    Well captured and composed.

Please take a look at the three opinion polls in the Forums under 'Site Talk'. They are only open for another three days. Even a vote for 'No Opinion' or 'None of the above' would be helpful. Thanks.

My apologies if you already received this invitation in the Main challenge. I'm simply trying to get everyone's opinion registered before the polls close in three days.

    very difficult to comment on a challenge where there is no defined subject just people's personal choice.......

    Great action shot. Nice one.

    The subject matter, great focus, and timing of the capture make me think of DaveV. If it isn't you, take it as a compliment! (You may think, as an admin, that I see who submits which photo. However, one of the other admins validated this one. This is the first time I've seen this photo.)

    Who doesn’t love a jumping coyote.

    Great action shot. I like how the vegetation is the same colors as the coyote.
