Photo of a Spotted deer.
Animal Details:
Name: The Spotted Deer (The Chital)
Scientific Name: Cervus axis axis
Family: Cervidae
Habitat: They are seen in grassy forest glades, forest edges, woodland and shaded streams in moist and dry deciduous forests upto 1000 m .
Distinctive features: The Chital is perhaps the most beautiful of all deer. Its coat is bright rufous-fawn profusely spotted with white at all ages and all seasons. They are seen in herds of 10-30, which contains 2-3 stags.
They are found throughout India and Sri Lanka.

Photo Details: The photo was taken at Nisargadhama, a rest house run by the forest department of Karnataka. The place is around 92 Kms from Mysore, Karnataka.
What i liked about this photo was the expressive eyes of the deer. Any guesses as to what they are trying to say????????

This image has potential, but the over exposed background is killing the impact of your shot. You have chosen a very difficult setting to shoot, as you have both shadows and bright sunlight in the same shot, but you got good detail on the deer.

I tried a workshop and I hope that you dont mind.

1. I cropped it more co that the backside of the incomplete deer is gone as well as most of the harsh sunlight.

2. I have adjusted the levels to get more exposure in the shade and on the deer.

3. I have adjusted the Hue and Saturation to add a bit of richness in the color

4. Replaced the harsh white sunlight with a darker color to simulate shade

5. Added a frame (which is personal taste) to make the image more complete.

I hope you like the result.

Thanks for posting and I like your note.
