WOW, I made the top 100 on my first Free Study and it's a personal best score! I broke 6 (barely but I did it)!! Thank you all so much!

I found these two while driving around Point Defiance Park in Washington. There are several groups of raccoons that roam the area. I took this shot from my Jeep, they walked right up to my side and started posing. There was a third, however he/she was right by the door and out of frame.

Beautiful processing here. Has a soft-focus look that just glows.

I'm not sure the filter/PS effect you applied on this works. I think the image is actually very strong without needing the effect (usually effects mask flaws and this appears to be flawless).. However, it's still a beautiful portrait of two very cute little guys!

Cutest of all rodents I'd say.

wow, what a great pose for these creatures! I love this, I like how they are centered from left to right and they are on different "levels". I think I would crop it down about an inch or so from the top though.

overall great image!
