[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Shot this young whitetail buck while standing in the brush,I'm sure he knew I was there because he kept looking towards me.He came fairly close before heading into the trees.The sun was going down fast and I did not want to step out because I knew there was a larger buck around and I was hoping to see him before dark.I've only resized this shot for TN.

Nice shot! You did well to capture him at all, since I know how skittish these creatures are. That said there are a couple of things I think can be improved - firstly there's a moderate cyan cast, you might have removed that by choosing a "Cloudy" white balance in camera when you took the shot - but it's fixable in Photoshop too. The more significant problem is that he doesn't seem to be quite 100% sharp to me - I think you did very well to get it this sharp with that combination of shutter speed and focal length, but in your shoes I think I'd turn the ISO up to 400 (or maybe even 800) to enable you to get a faster shutter speed. Anyway, a very nice capture :-)

La imagen del ciervo entre la maleza Blair, es interesante, pero lo calidad de misma es bastante pobre.
El brillo y contraste, ademas de una mala eleccion en la compresion de la imagen, desmerecen la calidad de la presentacion.
Presento un workshop con algunos cambios, tratando de mejorar los puntos mencionados.

The image of the deer between the weeds Blair, is interesting, but the quality of same is enough poor man.
The brightness and contrasts, besides of a bad election in the compression of the image, are inferior the quality of the presentation.
I present a workshop with some changes, treating to improve the mentioned points.
