This photograph was taken on Friday 14th August at Knole Park, Sevenoakes, Kent. It was a breezy and cloudy day with some sunny intervals so the light was all over the place. Knole Park is famous for its Deer and it was a privalage to be so close to these magnificent animals. I just hope that I did them justice. This particular photograph was taken as we were near the exit gates and the sun had come out so it was quite warm at this time. (4:30pm) approx.

Camera:Fuji Finepix S1500

Hi Fiona,

It is a great privilege to be near to wildlife, and more natural the habitat and wilder the animal, the more humbling the experience- don't you just envy the Ben Osborne's of this world?

Anyway, you asked for critique. The most obvious problem here is the lack of contrast. I think your camera was possibly confused by the back-light into underexposing, but that's easy enough to fix with a levels adjustment.

Having corrected the levels the colours then end up rather OVER saturated, which a Hue&Saturation layer can fix.

In my mod, I have also cropped the bottom of your image to place the group better in the frame which also means the image has a similar aspect ratio to the group of deer, and so does frame them better, so to speak.

I hope you find the comments helpful-
malc

Malc's Mod does improve the image, I have to agree, however, it is still a well composed picture - well done!
