I would have definitely gone with the coyote, it's something not everyone gets to see. Nice action.

The deer and the duck would have been my seconds. But there was just a feeling of a lack of sharpness for some reason on those two. Ducks tend to do well here on DPC.

I loved the coyote but couldnt decide. I had to chase him down for this and is the only shot I got.

Appreciate your thoughts. You know, I didn't think of that for a minute--to me it didn't differ from prior fence removals, including a horse one which top tenned and I submitted the raw original. And got a little bit of comment from some voters that I didn't remove *enough* fence!

The rules say "Cloning, dodging, burning, etc. to improve your photo or remove imperfections or minor distracting elements, etc. is acceptable. However, using any editing tools to duplicate, create, or move major elements of your photograph is not permitted."

So I didn't duplicate/create/move anything. The final image is quite cropped so the vertical fence post wasn't part of the shot at all, and of course the crop eliminated almost all of the dog too. The horizontal fence was the big element removed. Some voters think I cropped too closely and reduced the impact of the shot. Part of the close crop was to avoid showing the exercise boots which he had to be turned out with after 5 weeks of being penned in a small space due to suspected fracture! I should have submitted the same crop, instead of showing it uncropped. Guess the best thing would be to post the entry shot for side by side check.

It would be interesting for you to post up another thread showing cropped image before and after fence removal and asking SC if this would be considered a "major element" in this image...

I'll try and put something together later today. It's somewhat intruiging, because it is so much less than this one:
' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/324/thumb/162145.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/324/thumb/162145.jpg', '/') + 1) . ' and its original which was submitted to the SC because it top tenned.
' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/3214/thumb/165324.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/3214/thumb/165324.jpg', '/') + 1) . '
With horse photography, we are always removing bits of background, but it certainly is not my intent to violate the spirit or the letter of the law here.
