[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The weather is rainy and cold today and I couldn't be bothered to go out so you have a picture left over from the rutting season. This fellow had seen off all rivals and so could take a short well earned rest. This was taken in the morning.

Hi Karan.
Once more amazing shot of this very cute stag. I am amazed with its expression of the face and state of mood. Excellent low POV and superb DOF. Colours are the best as ell as the crisp sharpness and exact framing. TFS and best regards.

Hello Karan,
Wonderful sunny capture of this stag resting peacefully in the grass. I like the way he's watching you! Excellent sharp details and nice warm colours. A fine composition too.
Many thanks, Ulla

Oooohhh, he knows that he is pretty and very majestic. And I wonder how heavy it must be to wear such horns. Hi Karan, I like your shots of deers very much, thanks and greetings

Hola Karan,
sublime captura,
color y detalles excelentes...
iluminación genial,

You managed great sharpness and nice color in this shot Karan. I like the crop you chose which has him slightly off center and one of his brides in the background.

Hello Karan

A lovely look in his eye,he looks very proud of himself with a bit of a smug look on his face.
The composition is very good,the tones of the grasses and the lighting is very beautiful.
The colours are well saturated.
The focus is sharp with very good details.
Richmond is a place I think I want to visit sometime.
