[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I have done better shots of the deer but I thought the comedy smile on this hind was perfect for saying how happy I am that I found this wonderful site.

You are all an inspiration to me. In the time I have been here I have improved my knowledge on nature, photography and other countries. There is a lovely supportive atmosphere on this site, which is missing from many other photo sites.

So thank you very much for letting me get as far as 200 posts.

Hi Karan,
Congratulations on your 200th post. This photo is a great one to have a little party. Perfect timing from you, the look on his face is a great one.
Very good composition and very well seen because the colours of the deer are the same as the surroundings.
TFS Paula and hoping to see many more from you.

Hi Karan

Congratulations for this very impressive anniversary and i think i speak on behalf of all TN-ers when i say that we are all happy that you are here, too :)
A cheerful occasion and mood deserves a cheerful photo and this is perfect for the job! Even though i didn't have the time lately for criticizing, i watched you posts and i know that you took far better shots technically, but this one is all for the moment here and it's great in that perspective!
Great work, lovely evolution in your 200 photos and an impressive gallery overall!
I honestly hope to see a lot more hundreds from you!

Cheers and a BIG Bravo for everything!

And here's to many more Karan :o) Congrats on a great milestone, your contribution here has been amazing. I have learnt alot from you about the mammalian wildlife in this country from your posts and your Deer images have given me real inspiration to get out there and try to get my own (with limited success i might add!)
I've said it before but i'll say it again - another fine shot with bags of character that only you can seem to get. As usual everything is great, composition, exposure, DOF...very well done.

Hello Karan,
I loved this one with a big smile to me!
excellent composition with awesome sharpness, vivid colour and details in this shot, amazing!
very well done and my compliment!
best regards

Hi Karan,
A big CONGRATULATIONS to you on reaching this big milesstone and I can feel that you are very happy about it. This wonderful shot illustrates that feeling perfectly and the 'comedy' smile and expression looks magnificent. I like the natural surrounding and the chosen POV to portray this scene. Very nicely composed too. Kudos.

Hi Karan

Another lovely shot of deer with braken. I like the mono-tonal quality of these shots combined with the sharp focus.

Congratulations on your 200th posting.


Hello Karan,
And for the celebration... of course it had to be one of your furry friends!!
I'm pretty sure he is smiling here, sharp fine details in the middle of all the dry fern...
200 fine images is a lot of work, hopefully some fun too... Congrats!

Hello Karan,

Very good picture of this chewing deer. Good focus, good sharpness. Beautiful colour.
Congratulation for your 200th.

Hi Karan,
What a priceless expression you have captured on this beautiful animal. It is laughing indeed :)! I thought that only Mallard Ducks (and some rare wolves) could smile but I see that Deer can do so too :) I like those tones of colors, details and eye contact a lot. Congrats on this beautiful 200th post; this is a very good capture. Thanks,

Hi, dear Karan.
Thank you for you are here, with us and sharing your photo art, kindness and heartiness. I am amazed with your collection, nice comments and interesting notes. This shot is so cute as every shot of your deer collection. Impressive glance, attractive pose and very nice reproduction of the animal and thick dry vegetation.
My compliments and best wishes.

Karan "Little" the lady with a heart as "big" a bus.
In all your notes what STANDS OUT MOST is your love for all the members of TN.
Congratulations on your 200th.
I agree, this is a GREAT site; a wonderful set of members.
This deer of yours ... is it eating? Chewing the cud? Or, smiling at me?
A lovely take... a lovely moment frozen FOREVER.
Always nice to view your work.
Mario from COLD COLD Calgary.

Hola Karan,
Bonito retrato es su espacio natural, muy bien captado ese gesto como de sonrisa que parece brindarle a la cámara. Enhorabuena por tu 200 th post. Esperamos seguir disfrutando de muchos mas. Un saludo

Hi Karan,
Congratulations with your 200th upload. I surely have enjoyed and still am enjoying your wonderful photos. You've surely made great progress and have become a very good photographer. Especially your deer photos are remarkable. This one is also a great one for its funny smile. She really has a bit of a dorky expression.

Hi Jane, well done with your 200th post! Your shots have been getting better and better, I am very impressed with your landscapes also. The expression on this Deer's face is quite comical, maybe he is chewing gum? Anyhow he liked looking at you. It is nice and sharp and well focused and set nicely in the grass and ferns. Well done, and many more to come.

Congratulations for your 200th post!
Very nice job.
Beautiful colors and bg.
Great pose.
I hope see you... another 200000 more...!
Juan Luis.
