THAT is a wonderful shot. very nice soft colours and great situation. I believe any nature photograph would like to be in such a situation...
One question, is it a photo from a long wait lockout or is it done by approach (billebaude) ?
Also, the foreground is not very esthetic.. I tried to resize. Not sure that it is better..

Really good photo by fog and graze..
The moose is lucky to graze in a nice meadow by sunrise..

Such a majestic creature, and you have caught him in the most magical of settings. The colors are soft and gentle, and the mist adds that element of magic that make this a really beautiful image. The orange sky is fantastic too, a really great image.
Thanks for sharing

Wow! What a cool shot! The scene looks extremely unique and special due to the amazing lights and pastel tones. Excellent photo! Bravo!

Je suis un peu déçu par votre cliché qui me semblait plus sympa en vignette. La composition est parfaite ainsi que la gestion de la lumière mais pourquoi ce flou en arrière plan et le vignettage en haut de l'image...? Étrange avec un tel équipement... A part que le flou soit volontaire ?.

hi steve, very nice composition, maybe the sky is too colourfull, but the moose is definitely a great subject perfectly framed

Well done Steve. Looks like a really cool morning. Great light.
I'd suggest cropping out some of the vegetation at the bottom of the shot.
Keep on clicking.

What a perfect moment to capture! The moose looks as if it were marvelling at the rising sun. Great composition with several layers of interest. I quite like the out of focus branches in the foreground as they frame the image nicely.

a superb atmosphere with the orange hues and the mist above the pond. Perfect framing on the wild beast, including the pine forest in the background.
the blured green weeds at the foreground should be eliminated to have a more powerfull picture
