OK So I lied ... I found another one to post. THis was across a stream from me and so I couldn't get as close as I did to the Fallow stags.

Usual critique request please and thanks for the last lot.

Hi Nick,
I've uploaded a mod. in which I've increased the exposure very slightly using "levels" and increased the contrast with a modest "S" curve.
Still using curves, I've reduced the blue channel as there seems to be a slight blue cast.
Personally, I like the composition and although others will tell you that the subject is too central and too high in the frame, I think that with the long grass in the foreground, it all works well as it is.
I also cloned a small catchlight to each eye.

Hope this helps,

Bren.

Nice shot. Colour balance a little off just as Bren pointed out, and loaded a mod also. I think were twins, Bren and I
