Red Deer in Landscape

By ron thomas      
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.

great shot, if you had not told us it was a composite we would never have known. That to me is the art of very compotnet image manipulation.
Very well done indeed. If I could click twice, I would.

Beautiful, and what a great idea to combine those two images. The cold blue-grey suits both the recession in the landscape and the silhouette treatment of the deer & tree. Inspirational!
