Debora,
So beautiful!
I'm new to wildlife shoots. How, did you create the black background or remove the noise?

Thank you Majfol!! I'm glad you like it. The black background is because it is taken at night. When you have a dark room and the light goes directly to your subject and the background is far enough not to be illuminated. This is a classic flash situation, but in this case, as I explained up above, the lights were provided from my car. You know in tourist places, it is not rare that foxes get used to get some food from people, even steal from them when they are distracted. This one smelled the barbecue and came and sat down a few meters from us to wait for his prize, so we could manage to improvise a photographic set (I was with two photographer friends). And not only that, but next day he returned with all his family, including two youngsters, it was very funny and we got a lot of pictures, and also spent a lot of chicken :-) As for the noise, I reduce the color noise only, when I convert the raw archive with Digital Photo Professional, that's the software that comes whit the Canon cameras, I use it only for that because I love the noise reduction it provides, the rest of the edition is with old beloved Photoshop.

Superb crisp details, Debora, love your improvised 'studio' setup :-)))
... would make a superb addition to the "BLACK backgrounds" project :-)
