Another lovely shot Alex, I like to watch a photographer working the same subject matter from different perspectives, and this is a great addition to your impressive Richmond Park series. Congratulations on your impressive placement in this competition, but even more so on the series.

Ohhhhh Alex! You are KILLING me! I can't imagine thinking a photo is more cool than this!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/29/2010 07:52:56 AM
Alex, congrats on a great finish with a stunning picture. I would have been tempted to go with a tighter crop but the wide perspective conveys the "togetherness in isolation" beautifully. Great job!!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/29/2010 07:34:35 AM
Really beautiful congrats on your top ten finish.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/29/2010 06:58:30 AM
Ha, they're trapped inside the matrix! ;-)
well done man, the isolation really works on this.

01/29/2010 03:31:22 AM

8 - Beautiful, hope you have a wall sized. I think a crop / framing variation would have packed more punch, but your call of course.
01/28/2010 11:22:28 PM
Sooooooo sweet. I've never seen a bunch of them huddle like this.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/28/2010 10:41:42 PM
very nice crop.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/28/2010 09:50:50 PM
This would be great as a greeting card with text to fill the negative space. I love the little family.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/28/2010 09:40:38 PM
Great capture...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/28/2010 09:01:01 PM
Interesting use of negative space. Maybe just a little too much of it.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/28/2010 08:18:54 PM
remember this shot but don't remember the author. fantastic shot, regardless!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Very, very, very nice :0)

01/28/2010 05:11:23 PM
What a lovely little family! I like that they're all looking in slightly different directions.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/28/2010 03:46:55 PM
Ohhh - I REALLY like this!! Great composition and use of negative space.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/28/2010 12:13:18 PM
This may very well be my favorite shot of the bunch. I absolutely love it!
Perfection on all levels! Into my favorites and a perfect 10 are awarded to you for your excellent effort and accomplishment! Congrats!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/28/2010 11:08:50 AM
I can't start to explain how this photo appeals to me...the fact that it's not white, but "dirty" white is so much more effective, in my opinion.
The usage of negative space is great, and the scene itself is very well captured.
One of my highest votes, good luck!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/28/2010 10:14:29 AM
The empty space works well here.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/28/2010 07:37:44 AM
Ha, I love the isolation and they way they are all huddled together looking different directions. You can just see the conversion, "Ingrid, it all looks the same to me, are you sure we're going the right way?".
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/27/2010 07:21:03 PM
Good Shot! I would say just zoom in a little closer. If you were limited with the equipment, then I say this is awesome!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/27/2010 01:57:54 PM
What an awesome composition! That is a tight knit family.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/27/2010 01:17:00 PM
You did an excellent job with the presentation of the subject against the stark background.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/27/2010 11:41:05 AM
Awesome! Love the positioning of the ears and eyes to cover all angles of escape
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/27/2010 07:41:40 AM
Nice isolation
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/26/2010 09:40:55 AM
Great use of space! You can just imagine them saying "go ask for directions, you know you're lost"
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/25/2010 08:13:10 PM
Talk about negative space! This is really great.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

awww, they are cute...

Love the bleakness in this image, suits the subject well. Congrats!

I cannot stop wondering if i could cease to be impressed and awed at the pics that appear on screen. Some spectacular images but this IS in a class of its own...10 the less I say the better. People should not know Im a softy
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/25/2010 12:14:55 PM
Great idea. I would have used a little less negative space, though. 7

Wow I love this. 9
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/24/2010 09:16:06 PM
Great placement of the deer. I like how three are looking in your general direction and one is looking off to the side.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/24/2010 06:14:16 PM
How fun!! I assume that you're getting hit for the white background and all the negative space, but that's why I love it! I would have liked it with a tad less negative space, however, because they look so interesting, and I wish I could see them better. (here's for 1600 pixel challenges!!)

Nice grouping of the deer. Might be nice to see them a little bigger though.

cute subjects. Super high key is a bit much for me here. Would have liked to see a bit more of their surroundings.

My choice for the blue ribbon!!

01/22/2010 02:40:56 PM
I love this - the empty space and the positioning - I just wish they were maybe half again as large.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/22/2010 01:59:21 PM
Understated and powerful. Really nice.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

brilliant negative space shot !! 8
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/22/2010 08:53:30 AM
Together against the elements - what a stunningly minimal nature shot. Great capture of this family of deer huddled together for warmth against the chill of the blanket of snow. I don't know if others are judging it harshly because of the amount of negative/white space but I think it works beautifully to capture the mood and feel of the moment. As I mentioned, the eye immediately drawn to the deer family in their struggle to keep warm in the great white wilderness. Love this - 9
