[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Yesterday before sunset, as I was walking along the shore of Lac Philippe, this beautiful, gentle deer appeared from the woods, coming to drink. It did not fear me at all, just measured me up first to see if I were about to strike. After I got accepted, I felt the most beautiful radiance from this animal's gentleness. It didn't like the click of the camera, though, and I needed to make careful judgments as to when to allow myself to take the risk of taking a photo. This was one. It is not totally "photographic" but shows the deer's upper torso pretty well.

Hi Sarolta,
Well done on the capture of the deer with deerflies on it's back.
The placement of the deer could have been to the left, resulting in open space on the right instead of the left which would have made your comosition stronger.
Also, in post pro, in Hue/sat department, selecting the blue/cyan and desaturating would help your image.

Excellent effort.

Wow, lovely crisp image of this young deer. So clear. Beautiful colours too, with the sunlight on the trees in the background. Well captured.
