Hi Mokael,
It is a beauty...
Razor sharp.
A wonderful compo.

Beautiful, from the thumbnail it looked slightly oof (probably just my pc). A stunning image, great detail and sharpness, it's really crisp, and you have the added bonus of a natural frame.
The image could be slightly lighter, but this is just my opinion.
Great work, thanks for posting.

Hej Micke,
a beautiful portrait of the roe deer.
Lovely soft colours, good details and sharpness.
I love the compo and the POV.
Very well done.

I was out to "Villan" this morning but no bearded tits show up and it was quite cold -13C.

Very pretty shot Mikael. Technically perfect picture. Great atmosphere.

Hej Micke,
Wow, that's just fantastic - so cute and well arranged with flowers all around!! How do you do it? I suppose you were lying flat in the grass yourself? Brilliant!
TFS, Ulla

bonjour mikael
je pense que le mieux c'est que je la garde dans les favories!
elle le merite vraiment.

This is cute Mikael. I love the expression and the deer peeking at you from behind the foilage. It a nice composition and excellent exposure. I like the shallow depth of field.

Hello Mikael, what a great image.
What strikes me is the sharpness of all your images. You use soft colours (maybe you don't change them- canon D20 has reasonable soft tones) which is great, because it looks natural. The composition is fantastic!
Compliments, JAcob

Hello Mikael,
There is a deer's invasion on TN :)!!! This is a wonderful capture with superb eye contact and wonderful flowers in FG. How can you catch those sharp details with this aperture? This must be a very good lens ;) I like this POV and composition a lot. If you had time to set your tripod, it means that this deer must have been there for a while. Lucky you! Thanks,
PS, I like this title :)))

I would love to have deer close to my home. I love the way she is hiding behind the follage. Great expression, sharp and nice POV. Excellent DOF



Hi Mikael,
What a very stunning photo and what a lovely moment captured. Just peaking around the corner and giving you funny face. Great details and composition. The OOF BG really helps to bring out the deer and the foilage surround her.

oh what a great shot, beautiful deer..great dof. TFS

Thanks for your comments on my photo "early vermont morning" :O)

Bonjour Mikael
Superbre portrait de ce "Bambi". L'image est très claire et l'exposition de lumière bien réussie. La lumière très douce dévoile des détails minutieux de sa fourrure. Bravo pour cette très belle photo.
