The deer was taken in Ardnamurchan, W. Scotland a few years ago (on Kodachrome) and the landscape was shot from the Conwy RSPB reserve in N. Wales recently(Digital)I made lots of versions of this combination with different colour/lighting effects and I don't know if this is the best one but I had to make a decision. (I think that's the first this year!)

Super for so many reasons: colouring, silhouette, placement, frame. The only thing I could think of that would improve it would be to cut off (clone out) that tree branch that hangs down and spoils the symmetry.
Great pic.
