Looks a bit soft and lacking in contrast but the viewpoint works quite well with the stag dominating the foreground and the hind in the background.
Cute subject and the sunlit setting is quite nice. However, I find the subject way too cramped in the frame. The hind (female Red deer) could really benefit from some extra space in front of her to look into and possibly a little more room on the bottom of the frame would work well.
A good attempt but unfortunately they don't look as sharp as they could be and the added catchlight in the eye looks a little unnatural. I like the wing-up and wing-down pose in the first shot but feel that it would work better had the upper bird been a little more in focus as it tends to catch your eye first before leading the viewers eye to the lower bird.
Excellent pose caught mid stride and the eye contact is an added bonus. Is it a large crop? If not, it looks like the focus is slightly off and you've tried to compensate by applying too much sharpening, this has given a very 'gritty' over-sharpened look to the image, most evident in the grass surrounding the dog. Assuming the dog is sharp in the original image, a better option would be to reduce the level of sharpening applied, and preferably apply it selectively to just the dog. Just my 2 cents for what it's worth.

Quote: Can I ask if you use any flash equipment? I seen to get a lot of noise with the 40D and our low light conditions.
I own a Canon 580EX flashgun but I only generally use it for fill in flash, usually when photographing birds. I rarely use it as the sole light source as I much prefer natural light, in most instances.
I'm not familiar with the 40D but I would have thought noise levels shouldn't be too bad up to iso 400 and possibly even higher.
The secret is to ensure your exposures are as accurate as possible as lightening an underexposed image at the processing stage can cause image degradeation through excess noise.
I can recommend using one of the excellent noise reduction software programs, I use Neatimage and can highly recommend it.
