Which head belong to which body?

I believe these are very well-known mammals, so I feel like no long note necessary to introduce them.

Both are looking at a stranger [that's me], so I work on angle to capture them. They were very cooperative, posing nicely for me. I picked an angle such that these two faces on a vertical position, one on top of another, and bodies at right and left, respectively. Back to my question: which head belong to which body?

Salam Ben,
You show here very lovely pose of these very lovely animals. You are right, really its to difficult to realize which head belongs to which body. This capture doesn't need any word to critique. Really perfect. Nice work my friend. With frame-work it looks like very artistic. Bravo and TFS.
Greetings from Turkey.

Hi Benyamin,
Perfect details, colors, lighting and composition.

Hi Ben,
This is a good composition with great eye contact. Those two are really cute and you caught great detail! It's true that it is difficult to see which head belongs to which body :)You seem to have been very close from them... My only little nit is that I would have like to see a little more lightning in their eyes but this is nothing too bad, really. Thanks,

Excellent portrait and DOF.

Benyamin, what a nice "head confusion" we have here. Besides, great image with nice pov, colors and mood.


haha, this is really cool, ben! :-) wonderful double-portrait.
excellent composition of the 2-headed deer or are these 2 deer?
it´s so hard to tell because the lower head perfectly blends
in with the body next to it, but obviously belonging to the other head.
well seen & captured, thorsten.

Well that is a real optical illusion...it must have been interesting when you first saw it on the screen. It is nicely exposed. TFS

Preciosa imagen Benyamin con la expresión de ambos animales muy bien captadas.
Me agrada el alineamiento de ambas cabezas con buena agudeza y punto de vista.
Los colores del fondo se combinan con el de los ciervos conformando una bella composición.
Bien hecho... gracias por compartirla.
Saludos... Ricardo

Cute image Benyamin with the expression of both animals very well captured.
I like the alignment of both heads with good sharpness and point of view.
The colors of the background combine with that of the deer conforming a beautiful composition.
Well done... thank you for sharing.
Regards... Ricardo

This is a nice picture. The focus is sharp and the composition is very good. The pose is perfect; they seem to be very curious. The only thing I am missing is a catchlight in their eyes. Maybe a fill-flash could have solved that problem. Anyway, a very nice picture. TFS!

My favourite animals at the moment. Nice curious looks. They don't seem scared at all. Good, POV, DOF and colours. Nice composition.



Hi Ben. Good timing to get this unusual vertical -style of the two deer. Beautifully captured. Murray.
