Moni Deer

By JCowlan
Not far from Agistri is a little uninhabited Islet called Moni a deserted island where once there was an attempt to make it into a resort. The remains of the development are prominent and derelict, a real eyesore. Junk is left lying around all over the place
I was told by my guide that because the owners of the development had allowed the Island to get into such a state disrepute the Greek government reclaimed the Island. Today it is a wildlife sanctuary and home to Peacocks, Deer, wild ponies, and Cretan goats.

Good pic! But it has a bit too much detail which distract from the center of focus (the dear).

Matt may be correct, but I still think you did a fantastic job of capturing the deer doing what it does best: blending in. =)

you can argue about cluttered composition but that is where the deer appeared. I love it as it is a truly natural shot with the deer melting into the landscape (as they do)
- beautiful well composed and presented image

A beautiful picture, excellent colours and a fine Stag with a fine set of antlers. Nice light coming through to light up the greenery.

I also like the way your eyes have to search the deer out, and then the elegant surprise. I think the BG is marvellous.
