Hello Luis,
Like the majestic stag, lost but not forgotten..it is good to see a post from you once more my friend. Your image brings hope for the old fellow who possibly has eluded the sting of a hunters bullet or the demise from some dreaded disease. He stands tall and proud and ready to face the challenges that lay before him in his world of survival of the fit. Great presentation.
God Bless,

Hi Luis,
beautiful photo of this animal. Excellent gift for Anna :)
Nice presentation and composition.
Thanks for sharing,

Dear Luis
You have brought me to tears with this dedication. Thank you very much it is such a special gesture and so appreciated.
With my son being in hospital for the last 2 weeks I am quite vulnerable at the moment and I just want to tell you that looking at this image really made me calm and relaxed. It came just at the right time. Thanks for sharing and thanks for being such a special friend.
Warmest regards.

Hello Luis,
Great to see you back with a posting after almost a year.
Excellent photo in splendid colours and great sharpness. The pose of the stag is gorgeous. A beauty!
Nice dedication to Anna.

I have investigated your history, Luis, my friend.
You left TN decisively on July 7, 2011 and penned down a touching farewell note.
With your departure, this wretched site lost another great nature lover and photographer.
After the hiatus of about one and a half year, you have come back.
I rejoice your return and extend you a hearty welcome!
The scenario here on TN is gradually changing for the better, as you will observe yourself. Your presence will add dignity to it without any doubt.
I hope other great photographers like you who left this site would follow your footsteps and come back.
Finally, this picture you have dedicated to Anna (quite aptly, going by the appeal she has made on your last picture recently) is a signature image of Luis Leal that announces his return with fanfare and gives me immense joy and satisfaction.
Warm regards.

Hello Luis,
after reading all the comments, i come to the conclusion that all your old friends are missing you and finally they are happy your come back.
As a passionate nature lover and photographer I am also missing you!
as because always i found something new in your pictures.
today's picture is also a nice one for its composition, colour and use of light.
Please keep posting.
For "Love of Nature
The joy of living
The passion for photography"

Beast wishes and regards,
I don't think so that it is a "wretched site" as mentioned by Mr. Ram Thakur. It is full of life and enthusiasm. So, come back.

Hello Luis

This half portrait of this antler in really lovely light and surroundings stands out for the poise, grace and rapt attention your composition projects.

Hello Luis

Hola Amigo, lovely capture! I didn't even know that you had left until I went and saw your previous image. It is truly a loss for this site. I left for a couple of reasons but every now and then I pop back in to view some of the incredible images and adventures people have been posting. I am a visual person so it's mostly about just viewing what other people see through their cameras. I have enjoyed your digital images from the beginning so keep posting even though it is every now and then. Cheers! Paul :)

Beautiful. Such feeling and they came out in quality.
