A very curious buck who was watching me and one of my Irish Wolfhounds as we walked through the woods. He followed us for a little bit and was completely unconcerned by us and by the camera.

Liked this shot where he was nicely framed by the trees. He clearly belongs here, and is comfortable in the labyrinth of the shadowy woods.

PP - cropped, levels, slight vignette, dodged deer's head/antlers/eyes, cloned out bright spot behind him on the right, resized, sharpened, blurred a few noisy spots, added border.

Great capture... but I do think it's a little on the dark side.

Beautiful colors and you captured your subject with precision. I don't think I like the centered framing -- the right side and especially the top seem heavy.

(No vote, just a comment) Nice deer but too dark for my taste.
