It was time of fallow-deer rut and "females" from fallow deer were "bodyguards" of "male" in rut....So when they watch me, they started to bang with their hoofs and it was like small eartquake...they were going still closer and closer to me....four big strong female fallow deer...It was in dark dense forest...and when they were 15 meters from me I was really full of afraid. And in this moment one ray of light pierce through the trees and I shot them. My lens and my camera were on confines of its potentiality. And then FORTUNATELY they went away....UF!;)

thanks for sharing

Hi David.
Superb light used with great sharpness, exposure, colour and detail. I enjoy the way you have used the light on the front deer and the back deer is in shadow but still with detail. A beautiful mood given with your image using the light like this amongst the trees. Wonderful,
Kathleen

Great light!!

...in my favourites...

Hello David,

Thank you for this emotional pic.

Hello David,

This is a really good shot and a great note too - really get a feeling of the atmosphere surrounding the shoot!!

Great work capturing this - the light is superb, the composition excellent, and technically it was a great job hand-holding at 1/125 at 300mm... Well worth the risks - lovely work!

TFS,
Doug

Hi david

What a beautiful capture. The light is great in the picture and you can really feel the mood of the woodland/forest.

Zdravím, Davide.

Nevím, kde začít. Někde ale musím, takže:
Máš naprosto dechberoucí fotky!!! Opravdu dlouho jsem neviděl něco podobného. Hodně lidí okolo mne, mám pocit, nesutále jen řeší jestli ohnisko 400mm či 500mm nebude málo a jaké jsou výsledky jeho testů v laboratoři...Pak sklo nasadí na super drahé tělo a "střílí" s tím všude kolem sebe a čekají zázraky. Ale ty se nedostavují, neboť mnozí z těchto lidí postrádají jakýkoliv cit pro krásu. Myslím, že Ty jsi na tom jinak. Tvá galerie mi skutečně vyrazila dech. Ať už "Eyes to eyes" nebo "5 minutes before sunrise" nebo lednáčči - Tvé fotky jsou jednoduše úžasné! A to vše se sklem, které by většina výše zmíněných kolegů prohlásila za šrot. Fotka, ke které připojuji tento komentář patrí k tomu skutečně nejlepšímu, co jsem v oblasti fotografie divoké přírody kdy viděl.

S přáním dobrého světla do budoucna a s pozdravem z Olomouce na krásné Břeclavsko,

Viktor.
