[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This fawn was quietly sitting in Peck's Wildlife Park and let me approach at near ground level for this portrait. The light was shade with sunlight in the background presenting a high contrast exposure situation.

In PS5, cropped the image for maximum focus on the subject. Made adjustments using PS plugin Nik Dfine (noise reduction), Viveza (color balance / brightness/contrast),and Nik Sharpener. Then back in PS made some minor final adjustments.

PS: Dear Trekers, I have not been able to be as active on TN/TE/TL as much lately (uploading, critiquing, etc) because I am working on my other "art" as musical theater director - I am in rehearsal for "Hello Dolly!" which opens in May. I will still try to view images and mark notes & workshops as "useful" when able. Thanks for stopping my Trek pages and hope to be active soon again.
