Deer

By kathrynlouise    
Another from Spetchley Park Gardens.
Zoomed to the max as the first group of deer saw us and bolted so we kept our distance.
Have no idea what I did but quite like the way it's came out more painting like than photograph.

ThankyouGrin
I have no idea what I did to get it like this. Took about 5 shots and they've all come out the same!
They were terribly jumpy, we thought as in a field you could walk through we'd get alittle closer but obviously not as human friendly as we'd hoped.

A rather lovely image, which you have captured this rather inquisitive looking group of Deer. Love it.

Thanks Nathan. Still baffled as to how it ended up this way but I do like it Grin

Hi Kathryn,
Your texture is almost certainly lack of image quality caused by using the extreme end of your zoom. It will also have been exaggerated if this has been cropped from something larger.
Remember how images always looked rougher using the 'digital' part of the zoom on your Fuji?

Cheers Bren. It was zoomed to the max as we couldn't get any closer without them running off. All I took off it was some of the grass from the bottom.

This is lovely, like the painting effectGrin
I find this happens too sometimes when Zoomed to the max, I have turned off the digital zoom on my camera to stop temptation of zooming too far.
Nice effect happened here thoughGrin

Agree. It is rather painterly Smile

A fine group of fallow bucks, they certainly are handsome fellows and jolly good ones too for posing so beautifully for you. I've found the zoom effect on the Canon Ixus to produce images of a painterly quality too, especially when photographing wildlife. I took some pictures of fallow deer at Ashton Court Estate last year and they turned out similar to these.
