    Default Fallow deer (Dama dama)

    I went to a local park, I was hoping for more interesting or dramatic lighting, it wasn't to be. I have made some adjustments to the light, just wondering if I should have reduced the highlights a little more in the deer's coat. This buck is thrashing the branches in order to break some off so he can eat leaves and acorns etc. You can se the resultant small branches and twigs at the base of the image. i look forward to your comments.

    Hi Jon ... a very very cool capture of this behavior , love it !!!
    Great timing during shooting . Light is what it is ...
    Looks like a more conservative processing .. I think you can afford to push things to make the deer stand out !!!!

    If I find the time I will make a quick RP ...

    Very very unique frame

    TFS Andreas

    Thanks Andreas, if you get time I would appreciate it very much. I have some more images, I think possibly a little better.

    Hi Jon, not really working for me because of the awkward HA. Re colours, somewhere in parts between the two, Andreas has brought out more colour but totally wrong in the tail and I find the greens to saturated and vibrant, yours just needs a tweak in Exposure I feel.

    Interesting that you point out the " wrong tail color " for a quick demo how I would go with the image ...
