A great capture, and I love all the fawn's hair. I only wish that the background was alittle bit darker to make the deer pop even more.

Lovely shot! This gives you such a warm, fuzzy feeling - I love it!

Beautiful pastels and lovely pose by the subject. Like the first time I saw this I wished there was some way to deal with the object in the left foreground. But the rest is so fine it hardly detracts. Is this
kuku?

Brilliant exposure and DOF.

I've seen this shot before on the forums though I can't remember who it was who put it up there. I thought it was a superb shot then and still do. A great find. 10

  Photographer found comment helpful.

Superb. Great light and capture. My only minor niggle is the slight overexposure on the neck. I love the colour tone adpted.

Alain (I think I remember that it is you),

Congrats on a wonderful capture. I forget which challenge it was that you should have entered this, but I'm glad you finally got the chance and you are rightfully rewarded.

Very nice shot will do well 9

01/19/2007 09:49:41 PM
Awwwwwwwww! This is adorable and beautiful. What a nice capture. The focus is fabulous with that perfect DOF. I hope this does well. Making it a favorite.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/19/2007 06:00:30 PM
Lovely sharpness, I love those hairs along it's neck/ body. Fantastic composition. Excellent DOF - love the softness of the background against the sharpness of the foreground. Oh and colours too - the foreground ones are just perfect over the background ones. An absolutely wonderful wildlife shot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/19/2007 05:28:51 PM
I wonder what lens and at what focal lenght this was shot at. Sometimes extreme focal lenghts compress the scene so much that it creates a kind of macro effect. Like this deer almost looks four times the size of grass.... Well, that's just my mind playing tricks with me.
Cool shot, perfect isolation, colors work good together and the lack of (over)saturation is a bonus.

what a cutie!

awwww...this should be in the wildlife II challenge - 8
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/16/2007 06:48:39 AM
So soft & light - feels like a fairy tale. Beautiful. Back to bump you up to 9.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/16/2007 12:07:04 AM
You get my vote for best Animal shot. I like this picture alot. The reason, the scale. The thing just seems microsopic for some reason. Not sure if that was the intention, but it just works! One of my highest rated in this challenge.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/15/2007 11:20:02 PM
Seems as though he might be more curious than surprised. Some awesome shallow DOF here, and a very beautiful photograph. Great job, 8!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/15/2007 06:31:01 PM
Beautifully captured and executed image. The end result has left the fawn bleached in some areas, but still a very nice image. Good Luck.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/15/2007 10:39:18 AM
Awwww, isn't that just the sweetest thing? Excellent colors, bokeh and focus. 10

Awwwwwwwwwwww, how sweet!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/14/2007 10:47:51 AM
great photo, overblown highlights are smaller distraction then frame which i consider not needed at all, in case of this photo it only distracts from the subject with it's wideness and color scheme ... without frame i would give this 9, now 7
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/14/2007 12:50:31 AM
Beautiful colors, great dof, a little overexposed but otherwise a great image!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/13/2007 07:09:53 PM
I love this! Great subject, seperation of foreground and background - 10!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/13/2007 01:16:00 PM
the dof is perfect to highlight the subject. Excellent timing. POV excellent for subject. colors work very well - as gentle as she is.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/13/2007 10:25:14 AM
Absolutely adorable - I have never seen a fuzzy deer! One of my favorites of this competition.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/12/2007 09:28:37 PM
Wow. This is a really cool shot. Love the depth of feel as well as the intent look on the deer's face. Nice focus as well on the subject and good composition (8)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/12/2007 08:38:02 PM
awesome! great colour and crisp focus where it matters...this is a stunning image...perhaps my only neg is the blown highlights on the face 9
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/12/2007 07:23:05 PM
The little deer is adorable, but the image is a bit overexposed, unfortunately.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/12/2007 05:07:23 PM
Yeah, this works for me! Good luck!!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/12/2007 02:55:08 PM

Nice composition and DOF. Good Shot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/12/2007 08:48:17 AM
Beautiful DOF and sharpness. I like the composition very much. I think more contrast, specifically bringing down the midtones in curves, would really make this image pop. It seems just a little bit flat in the midtones.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/12/2007 08:40:22 AM
Beautiful.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/12/2007 08:26:22 AM
SWEET SWEET. I remember this from earlier in the year but I can't recall the photog. Awesome capture. Not positive about the aqua band in the frame, but no points deducted for that.

very cute, what is this?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/12/2007 12:16:58 AM
Best: Unique subject...this looks vaguely familiar...muted tones
Worst: Blown out white hair...I love square crop, but not in this case...
