    Hi John, I quite the image, framing and POV work, but for me, it's the swish of the tail that makes it. Visually I feel the image needs a CW rotation and if you do then you need more at the foot, therefore you would need to go back to the Master 'uncropped' file and with content aware rotate so it fills in the missing data. I would run a small amount of NR to the BKG, or reduce some contrast and add some negative Dehaze. The tall lighter grasses I find a bit distracting.

    A nice shot of the buck John, Nice pose and the tail swish is a nice touch. The B G tall grasses are a bit too contrasty.

    A fine image John, the colours to my eye are just a little vibrant (Adobe Color as opposed to Standard??), I go along with previous comments I would also consider a little tonal adjustment on the buck to see if it could be enhanced slightly.
