    Hi Tony -- I'll let others get more technical, but I think that you did a terrific job of dealing with both shadow and light. You haven't lost detail anywhere, either on the tree or in the well-lit part. I really like this picture -- I think it's beautiful.

    Hi Tony. A great start. This image really captures the feel and atmosphere of the scene. You have done very well in very challenging lighting conditions. Sometimes scenes that are neither well exposed or silhouette can be problematic but I think this really works

    Personally, I would crop away some of that right side dark tree area.

    The exposure has worked well.

    thankyou wirefox , comments greatly appreciated and Geoff has made a great comment of which i will try, however i was trying to use lead in lines to hold the deer.
    Thanks so much , this is the only way to learn how to improve and i will take on board for the future.

    My quick thoughts on a crop, Tony, was to leave about half of the fence on the right side. Enough to balance the gate. I think that would still give some 'lead in' but would concentrate the scene more upon the deer.

    But that was just a thought; so try something along those lines and see if it might work.

    Thanks Geoff
    what you say makes sense , i was thinking of the eye going around the pic but by cropping more on the right will do as you say , focus more on the subject which are the deer, brill.
    many thanks
