[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This not a PP experiment - they are two seperate deer sitting next to each other. I liked the similar poses. Unlike the Red Deer Stags who are avoiding each other at the moment the Fallow Deer Stags seemed quite content to be in each others company.

The British Deer Society has some interesring information on the colour variations of the Fallow Deer:
"There are four main variations in coat but many minor variations also exist including a long-haired version found in Mortimer forest, Shropshire. The common variety is the familiar tan/fawn colour with white spotting (becoming long and grey with indistinct spots in winter) on the flanks and white rump patch outlined with characteristic black horse-shoe. The Menil variety is paler, lacks the black bordered rump and keeps its white spots all year. The black variety is almost entirely black with no white coloration anywhere. Finally, the white variety can be white to sandy coloured and becomes more white at adulthood. This is a true colour variety and not albinism, which is rare. The fallow is the only British deer with palmate antlers".

Hi Karan,

Superb shot, I love the pose I can't see a thing that is differnet between them other than the colouration, the detail is good and lovely natural colours.

Hi Karan,
Exellent shot.Wonderful Picture.TFS.


Hi Karan,
Nice post showing the interesting color variations within this species of Fallow Deer. Very good note explaining this as well.
Great sharpness, detail, and DOF.
Nicely done & TFS!

Good picture.
Both are sharp.
Well done

They are a very nicely matched pair, but I think the colour balance is a little out (as discussed elsewhere) and the image is affected by jpeg compression artefacts. I've done a quick workshop on colour balance.
Best wishes, Nigel.

Delightful capture, Karan. These two lovely but different looking deer look so cute.
You have captured them in a very interesting pose.
Very pleasant picture against a soothing green background.

The parallelism of the two deer makes for a striking image.
I like their poses. They are beautiful animals.
Good light and sharp details.
TFS, Karan. : )

Hi Karan,
I read the thread started about the WS. I must say that the best would probably somewhere in the middle. I use a laptop as well, and I know what is 'wrong' with it and know how to work around it to get the best result. Luckely, I got a PC as well and can compare result that way.
Anyway, I love the sharp and very clear looking composition.

Hi Karan
Nice synchronize shot. Good colours, sharpnes, details, light, DOF and POV.
Well done Karan


Hello Karan,
A good double deer portrait!
Over here it is hunting season by now, so I guess their Norwegian cousins are not as calm as these are...
Good colours and fine details, nicely presented in this fine composition!

Hi Karan,
This is a wonderful capture! This is very interesting to see those two in the same pose with this funny expression (they have the same look on their face :) Wonderful details and composition! You caught them in a very good timing! Thanks,

They are very funny and the photo is more than good

Hi, Karan.
This is very nice composition. Sitting and looking exactly the same way. Like copies but still different. Good sharpness and exposure.

Hello Karan,
Very nice shot of deers with great colours.
