Beautiful animal. I wonder what ISO you used. Perhaps a higher ISO would've sharpened the photo overall.

I hope he does too, because I'm sure someone would rather see his head on their wall rather than here in this photo. I hunt, but I don't trophy hunt, and I hope that this guy makes it through the winter. Beautiful capture, the colors are beautiful.

Oh, that's a HARSH title! LOL!!! Majestic animal, great capture! At least you know you "shot" him first!

avg vote, i like the head and the fur beneath the chin, the rest looks like it just finished swimming through a lake ( damn wildlife not showering before a photo shoot :P ) The shadow from his antler makes his face appear dark. Think would work better landscape as it would flow more with his body shape, looks a little squished in portrait.

Wow! Now that's a buck! The grasses seem oversharpened to me, but he is so compelling to look at it isn't too distracting.

Great capture, but the image looks a bit oversharpened to my eye.

Oh, nicely captured! Which acting school did thid deer go to? - he certainly knows how to pose. Wildlife photography is often characterised by shallow depths of field to isolate the subject from its surroundings, but your choice of a small aperture giving the widest possible dof was, I am sure, the right one. The even texture of the grass as a backdrop is spot on, my only tiny, tiny nag is a very small patch between the nose and the left hand edge of the frame which my eye seems to have a fascination with!

Grass looks noisy, but that can be difficult. I love how he's looking right at the camera.

Nice Bull

Very cool capture, love the pose. Seems a bit contrasty and harsh, could be because of the light.

I really like the composition and colors here. Your title made me laugh. :)

nice capture. Without seeing/knowing the area around him: showing some the environment support his alterness.

Very sharp with rich colors. I like the soft texture of the elk against the grass.

Amazing animal, well captured. The lighting unfortunately is quite harsh, in these cases I am often likely to convert to B&W which is more forgiving.

Very nice rack on that one - and I really like the grasses as the background - sets him apart nicely.
