A wonderful peeking pose in a winter wonderland, Malcolm. Great framing, excellent detail, and killer eye contact. Excellent work.

Hi Malcolm, I would just bring the Temp down a bit (move the slider to the left), it's looking a tad warm and so the snow will be a bit more cleaner & whiter and the tree trunk will also benefit too. You don't say if it's FF or cropped, but I would either crop down the centre of the tree giving a nice hard edge to the RHS, or if you have it shift the whole frame more to the right, but still using the tree trunk on the trim edge. I just feel the subject is a tad squashed in frame. Nice position of the subject height wise and the H/A is perfect, especially the droopy RH paw. Just watch your shadows.

The inquisitive expression really makes this work for me- a lovely snowy scene too. The texture on the tree is very appealing in contrast to the beautiful Marten -really a total charmer!
