Really nice picture, great exposure and image quality! I personally would maybe try to find a way to crop out the bottom part of the image a bit, the patch of brown grass seems to be distracting my eye a little bit, like my brain is fighting about what's the main subject, the deer, or that almost equally-interesting patch of brown grass down of it's rear legs.

Agree with Jean-Pierre, would look much better with a bit of bottom cropped out. :)

Hey Guys and Gals,

Thank you for the feedback, Its strange that a picture can have distracting elements in the photo.

I really didn't do too much in the photo, except cropping it slightly in photoshop.

Thanks for the feedback :-)

Nice pic!

As others have said, the foreground is distracting. The other thing that I would do differently, and you might still be able to since you said you cropped it in Photoshop, is to avoid cutting the deer's head in the background.

Hope this helps :)

Thanks for that, I will do that.
I only took this pics in .JPG not .RAW format, soI dont have as much resolution to play with.

Thanks again for your advice.

:D
