A well caught moment of the buck calling. I feel the composition would be much stronger had you allowed more room at the bottom of the frame for the legs. Even though the legs would be partially hidden by the bracken, it's often preferable to leave enough room for them whether they be visible or not.

Tried a mod to take Justins comment into account, and cropped to place the Stag more left. Seems the content aware fill function in CS6 doesnt always do a great job though.

Fill works most of the time on V5 of CS but like this shot anyway

I definitely prefer the composition of the second one. The cloning is a bit noticeable though. It would have been better to have composed it that way in-camera, but of course that's always easy to say in hindsight and easy to overlook in the heat of the moment.
