Hi Michael, welcome to TN. Nice picture of this deer. I'm not sure what deer it is though. It's definitely not a Red, Fallow or Muntjac, it doesn't look like a Roe or a Sika...so that's me stumped.
Good portrait, the antlers look like they have a little problem with symmetry. Nice work.
Lol, the antlers look like melted plastic, he's certainly going to be lopsided! The deer down at Arne are generally Sika deer.

As I told you in your last posting I have gone through your portfolio and found you have some lovely photos. As I am a new member myself (1 month only) I feel free to work back into time on some selected portfolios and critique/comment/reward some of those earlier works. Therefore, although somewhat belated I feel I should reward this obvious beautiful photo with a deserved smiley. This is one of those photos you sometimes find on TN that is really worth much more that what it actually got. Don't ask me how it works or what the dynamics behind it is. It just happens and there is seemingly not much one can do about it.
I am very partial to portrait shots of animals so this one was an easy choice for me. The composition is good while the cropping gives the animal enough space to breathe and to walk into. The colours are well saturated and the exposure is well handled. DOF & OOF BG is great.
Good work and TFS.
An amazing shot of this wonderful creature, who seems as though he is seriously contemplating some kind of response ...
I especially like the shiny texture to his antlers and wary eye contact.
Exceptional details, colors, lighting and composition.
Well done and thank you.
