    Fallow Deer Stag

    I do not do a lot of 'Nature Photography' but here is one I took with my Asahi Pentax Electro-Spotmatic I had at the time, and a 135mm SMC f2.5 Takumar on FP4+ film and sepia toned it in Photoshop 7

    I like the sepia toning and the overall mood a lot. I would like the image much more if the antlers weren't cut off at the top and if there was quite a bit of space above them. I would also want the tree in the top background area removed.

    Thanks for your interest -- I think this was a scan from a 10x8" darkroom print and sometimes the scanner cuts bits off, I'm sure all the antlers were on the negative.

    Now that I understand your situation, it would actually be pretty easy to increase the canvas size of the digital file and to clone the tip of the antler and plenty of the background. That would not be easy to do with many photos but it would be quite easy to do with this one thanks to your composition.

    Peter,
    I like this picture, what a great capture.
    Like Mike I think having the whole of the antlers showing in the frame would just finish it off. I tried adding them in PP and think it works.
    Thanks for sharing.
