Hopefully caribou is close enough to deer, and hopefully people would think that someone would name a band "Don't Poach Caribou." Seems more like an animal activist poster. But [it] here goes.

Hello Thomas from the Critique Club

I think the reason you were voted down in this challenge was the fact that this is an image of a Deer not a Caribou and even though there is a similarity, people tend to get a bit picky.

The image itself is very nice, but seems a bit over exposed in the foreground and the deer a little on the pink side maybe the tonal values could be turned down to bring up the fore ground
The wording looks like a typical wording from a computer programme and not very inventive although the words themselves are good ( the Title)
I like them myself but voters get really technical here on D P C (I find)

There were a lot of very clever and impressive entries in this challenge so I think voters were really looking for perfection
Your image itself is very nice. Good focus and detail with the animal looking straight at you How did you get so close?
So I cannot offer any more help to improve your image so enjoy your photography and Good luck in the future challenges
If you have any questions please feel free to P M me

The image has a beautiful "flat" light. The subject is pushed forward well by the dark background. The text sits well balanced across the top.

it's a nice enough picture, but i would expect to see it on a cross-stitch pattern, hardly ever on an albumcover.

It all looks a bit pink. Did you meant it to, or was your white balance just a bit off?

Nice titles - too bad it's not a picture of a caribou
