8. Very good color. Excellant scene selection.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/26/2003 07:40:42 PM
great shot - catching a deer like this who knows your there is hard. The lighting and mood are excellent - good idea to go for the silhouette as opposed to trying to "light" the foreground. Nice work.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/26/2003 06:50:52 PM
Enjoy your blue ribbon - you deserve it! Cracking shot in every way. My only criticism is that there are some little RGB jaggies around the silhouettes - but who cares with a sumptouous capture like this? [10]
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/26/2003 05:38:57 PM
fantastic shot! Wow! the use of light to create the silouette, and the deer! amazing! I love this!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/26/2003 01:35:04 PM
Excellent picture! Nice candid moment you got from the deer.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/26/2003 02:52:32 AM
This is really nice. I think I would have liked to see some post editing to enhance the sunset colors. You captured a beautiful nature-filled shot, though, and I hope it scores well.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/25/2003 05:28:55 PM
Very nice silhouette...would it improve a little to offset the deer more to the right?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/25/2003 12:42:52 PM
This is quite a wonderfully peaceful shot, and the colors also make it interesting. The gradient sky is wonderful, meeting the ocean with a sort of misty feel. I'm also a sucker for silhouettes, and the woodland foreground is nicely sharp and detailed even though it is a silhouette. The contrast between foreground and background almost looks unreal.

Very nice capture! Such a wonderful use of sillhouette! 9

maybe compose it a bit differently to use the deer to get the Rule of Thirds effect, overall a very good picture
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/22/2003 03:52:23 PM
Wow, you really lucked out with the deer, she makes this shot a cut above. Can\'t tell where she\'s looking, it\'s probably at you, but I\'ll pretend she\'s enjoying the beautiful sunset :) I wish there was less room behind her and more in front, so she would be stepping into the frame instead of out of it.

Great capture. Great colors. Beautiful gradation of color. The shadowing is perfect!! 8

You caught the mood perfectly. Back light is great.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/21/2003 06:46:44 AM
Nice capture. The light is very soft in the background and that helps set off the foeground much better.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/20/2003 11:33:01 PM
I love the shadowed effect of your shot. The composition is wonderful, as is the fog over the horizon. Very pleasing shot, well done.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/20/2003 07:03:01 PM
Wow -- a super shot! You were certainly in the right place at the right time (either that or you happen to own a very convincing cut-out of a deer :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/20/2003 06:48:25 PM
Beautiful! Excellent contrast between hard and soft colors. I love the silhouette look - light usage is marvelous. The trees against the sky alone would have been dramatic, but the deer addition makes it superb. Nice shot! 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/20/2003 01:01:57 PM
Wow! My favorite shot so far. The sky is awesome, but the deer really makes this shot special. Good luck. 10

Wow - still another ten!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/20/2003 11:00:43 AM
VERY cool! One of the best shots of the lot. Great timing to have the deer present with this kind of light. Excellent crop. I love how all the vegetation and the deer are black. A ribbon winner in my book.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/20/2003 10:10:26 AM
What a wonderful capture. Colors on the horizon are great. Silhouettes are awesome. Must have been hard to carry that deer statue and place it there (just kidding). Good luck!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/20/2003 10:02:32 AM
AWESOME!! I love the sillouette of the trees against the soft gradient sky. The deer is a perfect addition. Good luck. 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/20/2003 09:41:27 AM
Patience must be a virtue you have in abundance, either that or luck :). I feel that the silhouette of the deer and trees are emphasized by the muted use of color. They aren't the normal "in your face" sunset colors, they're very subtle...beautiful. This is a fantastic shot and I hope it wins!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/20/2003 09:20:11 AM
I'm predicting a winner here! 10

Excellent picture. I wish a deer would pose for me long enough as to take a picture of it.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/20/2003 01:52:45 AM
Nice
Did you get a chance to try this shot vertcial?
I think it would have had a stronger impact.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/20/2003 01:24:30 AM
there is no doubt that this pic is the winner, it has everything dpc loves: sunsets, animals, and oceans.
