    I like the composition and the cropped buck but I feel the colour balance is a little awry and the image is rather noisy for ISO 2000.

    Hello John,

    That rack is awesome and you captured a nice pose from the Buck. Good choice in terms of DoF. But like Jon, I am not so sure about the colours here and the BG needs some cleaning up IMO.

    A bit more noise than usual, perhaps frame was underexposed and you had to lift shadows or blacks. Subject's eyes appear a bit dull, just not the usual clarity I am used to seeing in your images lately.

    Lovely sighting though, thank you so much for sharing

    Kind regards,
    Gabriela Plesea

    A nice shot with lovely set of horns on display. I agree about the colours and the noise.

    Hi John a nice shot of this buck . They do look quite interesting when the antlers are in this stage of the year .
    Comp works well as does the FG and the super smooth BG ....
    Agree with the others about the noise and the color is a wee bit " off" . No big deal and an easy fix ... if one likes .

    TFS Andreas
