    Once again, excellent shots, Chuck.

    The first one has a lot of contrast between the highlights and shadows but you have coped well.

    Hi Chuck,

    Yes, difficult circumstances handled well.

    I think on the second, if mine, I would lose 5 - 8% off the right edge by cropping, in fact looking at #1, it applies to that too.

    However, I guess there's a reason you framed like that

    Cheers,

    Thanks Geoff and Dave. Here are the same two photos with different crops. I decided to make a very different crop on the first photo because I simply had too much over exposed grass on the left side to make it work with a horizontal format. Also took some off the right edge on the second one. Thanks for the suggestions. Dave, I suspect that you assume too much to think I have a reason for my framing - or for that matter much of anything. But I am having fun.

    Cheers, Chuck

    I really love the peaceful posture of the resting fawn. Beautiful coloring and composition!

    Nice captures Chuck, the crop on the second works well for me.

    That's what I would have said ....... if Frank hadn't said it first.

    Such graceful creatures! I really like the third shot showing him/her licking his/her lips. We usually see the normal post-card shots of deer and this one shows that they really are alive and do animal things! They are all very nice. I'm glad you cropped the one with him/her resting. Thanks for sharing!

    Re: White-tailed Deer Fawn

    #2 really works for me. That fact that you are eye-level (or appear that way) really makes it. The first image, while very nice, looks like a tall person took the photo looking down on the fawn a bit, which is OK, just not my preference. This may not have actually happened and the background may just be sloping upwards, causing this look.

    I need to start photographing the deer roaming through my backyard, though they are coming through mostly at night these days! I'm catching them on my infrared "trail cam", which is sort of fun.

    Thanks,

    Sean Fitz

    Gretchen and Sean, thanks to both of you for your feedback. I found both to be helpful. Sean, I am tall (6'4") and the background was sloping upward. The perfect storm. I will try to keep my altitude in mind in the future.

    Cheers, Chuck

    Excellent shots. I like more the "at their level" shots.
