[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Another POV of the female deer that I have captured in Mont St-Bruno National Park. This pose gives the impression that she's laughing. I do find that she is a bit out of focus.

Salut Patrick,
Ça fait toujours plaisir de voir une photo de chevreuil, surtout lorsqu'elle est bonne comme la tienne. Justement cette après-midi j'ai eu la chance d'en photographier plusieurs au Parc Régional de Longueuil, de ce temps-ci il y en a à profusion. Félicitation pour le tien, je le trouve peut-être un peu foncé mais je l'aime beaucoup quand même. Bonne Année Photographique 2007.
Denis

Patrick, Either she is laughing, or she is talking to you. One or the other!. Nice capture...just a shame that her head is not in the sunshine, too. Thanks for sharing.

Nice shot Patrick.
I like the Autumn colored BG, "laughing" expression, and bulbous black nose. Great detail, POV, and DOF also. I did a quick WS.
Best Wishes for a Happy New Year!

Allo Patrick,
Je trouve le focus bien quand même. Je ne sais pas pourquoi, ces animaux ont souvent l'air de sourire comme les canards
:-) J'aime bien ces couleurs de terre orangée. J'aurais préféré une petite lumière dans l'oeil mais je comprend que ce sont des choses qui ne se commandent pas toujours. Merci,
Claudine

Hi Patrick,
You are right about the focus, but that doesn't mean the photo is just beautiful. The pose captured is kinda funny. Beautiful warm fall colors and good work on the DOF.

great colours here, and nice light too. It is maybe a little OOF but i don't think that it's distractng here.
