I stalked this stag for well over half an hour before I could get close enough and have him in the right light at the same time.

Great colours and sharpness, tremendous image, I really like the centred composition and the gentle vignetting draws you in to the subject without being overpowering

very good...only qualm I have is the blurred foreground...it may not be from editing, but looks like it is...I find it a little distracting...perhaps taling about 50% of it away with a different crop would have been better...great image though 7
