Wow Nick, this is a great shot! The light is perfect autumn low and soft light and works so well with this scene. He is a very handsome deer and you caught a good moment as he moves through the grass. Focus and exposure excellent with that ambient light. Nice and clear and sharp. Wonderful.

This is a bit bigger than a red admiral!
He does look tired but you have captured him to perfection. His coat looks shiny and smooth, his antlers are sharp and jagged; it is only at his mouth and eyes that the tiredness can be recognised! Excellent low, light creating long shadows!

This must be the Monarch of Richmond Park!
You caught him well in this sharp shot from a fine POV and put him in a pleasing composition. Great lighting too!
TFS and best wishes, Ivan

Poor thing though... I know they have to be culled but it's still very sad.
I hope this guy survives at least one more winter.
A superb shot of this majestic Deer anyhow.
+++ The golden lighting is beautiful. You've handled the exposure very well.
Superb clarity that conserves a high amount of detail along with crisp edges and sharpness throughout.
Very well composed and the POV is nice aswell.
A good DOF and BG.
--- Nothing :)
Well done Nick,

What a sunny and clear capture!
I like the light caught here, I suppose it shouldn't be frequently to have it in London, but you caught it with mastery.
Details on the deer's fur and thorns are simply great.
Congratulations and thanks for share it.
Love the framing, it goes perfect for the tonal harmony.
My best regards,

Very nice occasion to use saturation but not too much just right yes? It is a quality animal. Very grand in it's stature. The old wise one. Just as well he is safe at his present location.The US West in fall would be his doom. So well it stands. Very nice Nick!

This is the first time I've seen an old deer. Nice pose. I don't know how he can hold his head up with those tremendous antlers. Wonderful natural colors and details and a lovely setting.

Wonderful shot and I love the way you have caught him with the tongue out trying to detect females ready to mate. Lovely sharp details and wonderful colours on the coat

Very intersting shot of this Red Deer,
Perfect focusing,composition and BG,Welldone.
Sorry I haven't been around and commenting, but just had time over the last couple of days to quickly post.
He certainly look a little worse of wear. and I've fallen out of may a pub pulling the same facial expressions! It's the light and level of detail that make this shot work so well on the eye, but the story is also a critical part of understanding why he looks the way he looks.
