On the only day I could go in search of wildlife -- it was gray, drizzly, misty. I thought there was no way I could get anything. It's not perfect, but it is wild, and I think he's beautiful :)

You're my inspiration! Bummer that this fell out of the top 10. Still deserves that star.

Hey Sandy, I just now got a chance to sit down and start going through the lineup post-contest. I remember this shot from the beginning as one of the ones that I thought was going to do really well. Nice crop, nice dark background, and great shot overall. My son, 'yakatyou' sitting next to me asked me to say that he likes it too. Actually, he was looking specifically for this entry to see where it placed.

Sandy this is awesome! I gave you a 10! Its a shame to get a score 7 and be out of the top 10! Great picture and capture. I couldn't imagine seeing something like this in the wild much like take a great picture like this. Way to go! Congratulations

I had this one pegged to win a ribbon, and it eas one of my "10's"..... I loved it, and only wished you got on the front page, but gee, we had some really great entries in this one.....

He indeed does look royal. I am not familiar with what this animal is, but I very much like the white bands around his eyes.

I really wish I could vote on this Sandy, but in keeping with fairness in the challenge, and the rules of voting, I will just say that this is a fantastic capture and wish you well in the challenge. Good luck my friend!

What a kinglike stance. Love the focus and detail, although you aren't that close. Great contrast, yet natural and neutral, just like in nature. I like the background being enough in focus to see that he is in a forest of trees. Beautifully done.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/23/2007 01:02:12 AM
Very interesting and mystical. Love the contrast.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/23/2007 12:14:20 AM
Fantasy like. Very nice. I find myself wanting to see the rest of the animal, but this still works. It'd be lovely with some legs, and in a long slim crop. Nice catch either way. 7

Wow, What an incredible animal!!! He is amazing. I love the way his beautiful eyes are looking right at you and the way his huge antlers just crown his head. Lighting, compositon, clairity are all excellent. This is straight out of National Geographic. Wonderful Capture!
