    While in Grand Teton I saw these two who seemed to be disputing over who's food they were eating.

    Nice clean capture of the action. I like how the light reflects off of their fur.

    Very cool Alisa! I sure like the snow on their faces, and their bit of a battle and butting of heads.

    I am liking how you processed this. Snow is not always easy to process, but I think you did great here.

    One thought as to the composition, the back end of the Bison on the right is cut off, I think ideally he would be not cropped off. The rest of the photo is so compelling that cutting off of his butt doesn't bother me as much as it might normally, but I did notice that.

    Beautiful detail and processing here Alisa. An alternate title might be food fight.

    I like that second one too, Alisa. If you focused in closer on the heads that would also be a great image and no one would notice the cut off butts.

    The view in you new photo is really nice showing the whole body, but I think I like the way the heads are better in your #1 photo. With that said, both are really nice. To Dougs point I think, have you tried cropping #1 even more?
