"You're excused!"WinkWink.
Fine capture of the bellowing stag, Trev, nicely picked out in very fine detail from the b/g with that wide aperture and selective focussing.

The shivering antlers add resonance to this fellow's bellow.

fine result in the cicumstances Trevor nice bit of motion in the antlers.....yesterdays abstract was a real mixture of filters firstly i used the swirl tool and took the centre of the twirl up towards the top left of the shot i then mirrored it moving the centre of the mirroring down to bottom right axis this gave me the nice wee olipticals then added an orton filter to change the white to greyish and added the wee touch of brown the orton filter then was then blurred by 10% lastly i added water droplets and used an increased size of droplet end result as posted.

Well picked out against the defocussed bg, Trev. I like the movement in the antlers where the body is still still (grammar!!), as though the antlers are resonating with the bellow.
