Followed a fawn and it's mother around for a time the other day and they really didn't seem to mind that I was there. This was my favorite shot of the day, just spoke to me somehow.

PhotoShop adjustments:

Probably an unconventional way of producing this, as I played with different things within the Basic editing guidelines and liked how this version came out.

Wow! A truly awsome shot! Did the deer run away afterwards?

Good composition, but the two black things are distracting. Is this Cade's Cove by any chance?

The choice of subject and background may not have been the best for this challenge. The use of soft focus really makes the deer almost dissappear...

this shot is too blurry...could be sharper...Just Kidding!!

The tree branches in front of the deer are very distracting

Very nice, nailed the effect quite well. Just a tad dark, would like to see more of the deer. Good job.

A beautiful animal (deer right?). strange black lines in front of it's torso are a little disturbing though.
