    This shot and your outtakes prove you have a technical skill and artistic insight which just keeps getting better and better.

    Love the DOF and focus. Not a fan of the framing of the shot, but perhaps this was the best under the circumstances. If you have them, would love to see some alternate compositions in the outtakes. In my favs.

    Very good low angle shot, great framing.

    Lovely photograph. I am surprised you got it so sharp on that shutter speed.

    It's well exposed and sharp. The tree behind the deer's head is distracting. Perhaps a different angle could have given a better background.

    Very attractive shot. The horizon and water appear to tilt to the left which pulls the deer over. Absolutely love the face, you have caught their skittishness perfectly.

    Lovely capture, focus on all the right spots. I would not have minded a bit more of the deer and less of water and earth - the photo is still high on my list !

    Very nice head shot. The composition provides the best of both worlds - not too far away, yet not too close to lose context.

    deer are timid creatures so a good head shot and the eyes are great

    Beautiful shot. I like the crystal clear shot at ground level. Very nice. My only pick would be to level the shot using the water where the deer is drinking as your guide. Beautiful photo. :)

    Great sharpness and framing. I'd like to know how you got such a low angle shot. Nice lighting in the eye. The horizon looks off level but that may be simply slope. The tree is perilously close to looking light it is growing out of the head but the sharpness of the subject and the slight out of focus of the background saves the shot.
