AWESOME nature shot. Has it all- some foreground, blurred background, tack sharp animal, warm colors. Should have scored higher, congrats on top 10%!

Great wildlife shot, nice bokeh and I love the greens.

This is quite lovely, though I find myself wishing it were a tad *warmer* in coloration. The rim lighting on the velvet antlers is just perfect. Great catchlight in the visible eye as well, makes a big difference. 7.

Voted earlier coming back to leave comments. Wow! What a fabulous shot of this male deer! Just look and the fabulous details and the way the light illuminates it beautifully such that we can appreciate the texture seen in the fur. Love the bokeh of the background - the spring hues of the forest greens really allows this deer to shine in his natural surroundings. This must have been some sight to see live!

Looks like the sun is shining from behind and that makes the antlers look like they are glowing. Very cool.

Lovely velvet antlers in what appears to be early morning light. I grew up where this was a common sight. Thanks for the memories.

Great lighting and use of selective blurring. Really makes the subject pop. Wonderful to see the velvet on the antlers.

Lovely capture. It'd work a buit better if the light was in front of the deer rather than behind.

Striking. The catch light in his eye - such a wise fellow. Beautiful.
