Hi John... really well spotted. I think the there is a natural frame available for this shot in the form of the trees either side of the deer. I have uploaded a mod which shows this, I have also cloned out some of the branches encroaching on the animal. Unfortunately there is little detail left to manipulate as the light areas are blown out.

Anyhow I hope my upload shows what I am saying, your original file should hold more detail that you may be able to recover by using the Darken Highlights tools.

The upload has lost some detail .... this is mainly due to a crop of a small image... but should give you an idea.

Nice picture, two different approaches here offered which could work either on their own or with each other:

A black and white version and a portrait execution.

First, the colour of the animal's skin is lost amongst foliage and actually your subject is defined by the shadows on the ears, neck and its body. B&W would help to make it stand out, try it for yourself.

Second, I would have taken it by rotating the camera 90 degrees. It crops the other two trees on the sides out and offers a leading way to the deer defined by the two trees in the centre and the path of the rock formation.
