    OK, that one is just stunning. Sharpness of the deer, nice colors in the background and softness of the grass. Beautiful, I say!!

    A very different style of image and as Terri mentioned, a truly stunning one. Really nice exposure: bright subject and foreground and dark background. I only wonder if I would like it even more with more space above Bambi's head.

    Thanks mike. I really pushed the exposure on this one. Had to bring it back in post by -1.0 ev. Due to being backlit, there are several large white ,shaped bokeh spots, in the background. I cropped it tight to remove the spots. This crop also keeps the eyes on the upper 1/3's line.

    Thanks mike, i do like the uncropped image, but there were some bright white bokeh dots that were distracting. I cropped it to 16/9 to remove the distracting spots and place the eyes on the upper 1/3's line.

    Consider cloning to remove the intrusive stuff in the background.

    I like this. Something worthy of a print I would say.
