[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I told you yesterday that we went to Uludağ. This time I wanted to change my photography style and decided to take a deer photo from Uludağ Milli Parkı Geyik Üretim Çiftliği (Deer Breed Center of Uludağ National Park). The people cannot entire this center actually, but I ask for to officials to let me take a photo from a bit closer place to deers. The director gave me permission and I came into the keeping center.

They were staying a bit far from me and when I went to closer, they moved quickly far from me. It was so shy. But never did run away. But at least, the wire fence will not appear on my shot. Actually I tried before to take some photos from here, but the wire fences weren't helpful to take a succesful capture.

Deers (in Turkish Geyik) are natural member of Uludağ Fauna. But in the past they were so much hunted by people and they were getting vanish. Thus our government founded this center and prohibited deer hunting. Now they are in safety and increase easily. Adult deers were taken from here and were left other forests of Turkey. In Turkey there are a few centers like this.

This is my first shot that I took a wildy animal in its real place. Hope you like it. (Actually this place is not a real wild place but it was not a barrier between deer and me. On my older works, there were everytime a barrier like a wire fence between animals and me.)

You can find a detailed info HERE.

Hi Fevzi

Very well done to avoid the fences between you and your subject. I'm sure you feel better now, knowing that you've shared the same space with it :)
Excellent capture for such a short zoom lens. Really nice POV and very fine sharpness. Lovely natural colors and tones and a pleasant comopsition.

Bravo and TFS

Hola,Esto es caza mayor, excelente, y precioso animal, buena composición... saludos

Merhaba Fevzi Abi.
Makrolar ve manzaralar dışında hayvan portrelerinde de üstad olduğunu kanıtlamışsın. Eline sağlık, selamlar

Merhaba Abi.
Mükemmel bir portre olmuş. Üstad üstaddır. :)

Bursa ne kadar da Artvin'e benziyor? Benzer manzaraları orda görmek mümkün. Güzel bir "elik" portresi. Bilirsin Artvin'de geyiğe Elik derler. Bu da eliğin tekesi :)

Merhaba Fevzi,
An interesting try because you achieved to photographed a wild elusive animal. I appreciate the picture and enjoy your note.
Best regards

Hi Fevzi.
I welcome your attempts to expand a circle of objects of shooting. It essentially enriches practical experience and an outlook of the photographer. I think it was not so easy to shoot this animal so close. You have done it very well. Great captured scene and composition. Perfect lights and darks, colours and pose of this cute animal. TFS and best wishes.

Herkese nasip olmayacak bir manzaraya şahit olmuşsunuz. Bu dağlarda geyiklerin varlığından şüphe etmeye başlamıştım. ellerine sağlık. Çok güzel bir çekim.

what a proud look animal although he looks tired from carrying that rack around..great shot , awesome POV and a great catch for you
