    Rafinmelb. Thanks for the help. I will give it a go. I would also like to get another shot of her. We are now at -37 C with wind chill so I won't see her for awhile :-)

    Some of the other shots I took toned the leaves down but left the raccoon in the dark. You can see how bright the evening sun was by the tree trunk on the left. I should have grabbed my big flash when I went into the garden to shoot her.

Yes Flash might have helped. I was actually thinking that some local adjustment in PP might help. A couple of thinks I would try would be:
- try a vignette to darken the corners thereby focusing attention to the middle
- try selectively darkening the greens
- just do some dodging/burning to darken and lighten the spots you want.

    Hi rafinmelb. Thanks for the comment. Some of the other shots I took toned the leaves down but left the raccoon in the dark. You can see how bright the evening sun was by the tree trunk on the left. I should have grabbed my big flash when I went into the garden to shoot her.

We live in the city and many people don't like a raccoon around since they tend to wreck our garbage cans. I feel that the 'inconvenience' of living with nature is worth it.

    Cute. Those bright leaves though keep wanting to drag my eyes away from the subject.
