Probably #1 is what you choose to focus on and how you select depth of field.

Hello @Varun5C87 , there are a few basic things you need to know about wildlife photography. Concentrate on the eyes. They must be sharp and distict. Your overall subject should be sharp. Leave some space in your photo on the side where your subject is looking. Your subject should be looking or moving into the photo. Try not to crop off your subject. Get rid of distracting backgrounds that have nothing to do with your subject. .

In the following example, I increased the photo size in Photoshop. In Lightroom I cropped the photo, retouched the eyes, decreased the highlights, brightened the shadows and did some sharpening. I also blackened the background.

Hi @Varun5C87 ,

The photo is out of focus hence not sharp. It is nosy, both color and luminance. Also the white balance need adjusting. It is a slightly blue.

Hi @Varun5C87

As @Ralph Lear gave you some very good tips to follow already, I will only add that Stock customers expect perfect visual and technical quality which can be challenging with animal shots.  Use a tripod and be patient.  I know a photographer who spent the better part of an entire day getting the perfect orangutan photo which turned out amazing.  And he still had to do some post-editing in Lightroom.
