We have a mysterious image here, friend Babujayan, very mysterious. In my opinion one very important think is missing here and thats the eyes of the deer.I think, Babujayan this is very crucial element for the impact of the image and right now the all frame loses its power, when presented that way. However, your notes are presented in short and valuable form. Have a lovely day, friend.
