Hi Jai.
Wow, well done. Normally the high-lights in the trees and bush become distracting, but here it gives a nice feeling to the environment of this Stag amongst the ferns. Wonderful pose and your composition brings all the attention to the Stag, excellent. Beautifully exposed with wonderful detail.

Hi Jai,

oh yes indeed, what a great shot. For a moment i thought he would turn his attention on us too!
Nice play of light on the ferns and excellent eye contact, a lovely shot my friend.

Hi Jai!
I didn't know you had a TN account!
This is a really nice shot of this Stag.
A lot better than I managed to get.
+++ Very sharp and detailed. Great composition and POV. I like the way it's head is poking out of the ferns. Great lighting.
--- Nothing :)
Well done,
Joe :)

Hi jai. good work with the camera you had not used before and knowing the light he was in. you have captured a good pose with nice eye contact. good detail and colour. well done TFS.

What a terrific composition - not to mention capture. There's a gracefulness about this stag, and although he appears worried (his eyes, that's what I'm going by), not sure what you're up to, I love the clarity of this shot. The greenery in this case enhances what is already there. Excellent exposure, detail, and composition. This one I'd actually declare perfect. :)
