Two very nice pin-sharp & finely-colored captures of the lovely Deer. It is nice, "as Hugh said," to see You back on the EPZ site. Missed you. Regards...Peter

Groups of animals can be difficult because it's hard to find a composition with a nice focal point, especially as deer often seem to string out in a line. In both cases, the stag with his head up is an obvious candidate but he gets a little lost in all that's going on. In this case, I think a longer lens (around the 200mm mark) would help to isolate him. It would also help to cut out the bright sky, which is causing exposure problems in #2.

There's quite a big white balance problem with #1 — the fluorescent cyan sky is a dead give-away. Auto white-balance has probably seen the brown deer and decided that you're in very orange light, which it has tried to correct for. Setting the colour temperature to about 6200K gives a more natural-looking image and brings out the colour of the deer more, too.
