I've always thought Red Deer look very majestic and proud, especially the males with there amazing antlers :-)

I dedicate this to Luis who should be very proud for winning a photography competition and for being published in the mighty Nat Geo magazine!!!
Congratulations Luis!

Hi Joe!

The deer does look majestic and proud... and you can be proud of the quality and the expression of your magnificent picture! The colours are superb and the sharpness as well as the depth of field reveal rich details. Moreover, the picture simply is pleasant to look at.

Kind regards

Great capture of this magnificant stag; excellent low POV, good composition, sharp fine details and natural blurred BG.

Hello Joe,
Beautiful morning light on this proud Red Deer in this dry vegetation. I also like the way the surrounding trees are shown like shadows. Excellent focus on the moving animal.
A very fine picture!
Best regards

A proud looking stag nicely captured under the warm illumination of a nearing sunset Joe, and a fine dedication to our esteemed friend Luis, He'll love this, I'm sure...

It looks like a picture...but what I mean is that it looks much like it is frozen in time...no movement...like the one in the Christian book who is turned into a salt pile. Pretty nifty. Hope all is well in your jolly country Joey!

Hello Joe,
Beautiful light. Good depth and compo. And of course a beautiful and proud Red Deer.
Thanks for sharing it.

Majestic! I love the colours with the yellowy grass. Good framing and detail too.

Hi Joe,
Crisp clear details. Majestic pose.
Excellent composition especially the light antlers against the dark background and the dark fur against the light grass. Just lovely.
Have you done any pp work in the background close to the mouth?
