Since I am a rookie photographer and this is my first challenge, I am thrilled that I made the top 1/3 of the photos submitted. Thanks for your votes and most of all your comments both positive and negative. I appreciate both as they help me learn more and grow as a photographer.

This is not a pet deer however there are an abundance of them where I live. Actually I did invite her in but she declined. Maybe that would have scored a little higher in the challenge. :-)

I love this photo so much! I just added it to my favorites. I couldn't believe what a clever oxymoron this is. I would love to know the story behind this little uninvited guest :)

Not a bad finish at all for a first challenge! :)

I am really looking forward to seeing more of your work in the future!

Nice capture of a moment. Unfortunately, outside is what we want to see, and it is overexposed and washed out. Consider revisiting levels for a full range outside, ignoring the inside, maybe even crop to the grid in the door.

Good choice to go B/W to minimize background color distractions. The tonal range is a little short IMO and contrast could stand a small boost. Perhaps a trim/crop on the right side to take the deer off-center?

As for the image, good job getting the photo in the first place. I imagine there wasn't a lot of time to react to the situation. Good luck in the challenge.
