Such a beautiful shot. I love the way you composed it, and the tonemapping (I believe it was used) really brings out some great detail and colors. I did have this pegged as a Alex shot, but after the challenge seeing that its a "Simms" shot puts it right where it belongs also. Your work is outstanding!! I had this as a top 3! But Congrats on top 10!

What, did you eat Alex's workflow or something? That's two Simms' in a row I've mistaken for Sabieris.

Perfectly soft. Well done posture and dof. Might have upped the greens (but I'm a sucker for green) :p

Very nice!

Sabieri, must be. Nice shallow DoF, and some beautiful post-processing.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

nice capture, although the tree in the back seems to make a line with the antlers and is somewhat distracting
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/11/2007 06:12:21 AM
Very interesting shot. There's some wild bokeh happening back there. I love the DOF on the head and horns - they look 3D.

Almost too good a wildlife shot. I hope I'm not insulting you by asking if he is stuffed in a museum?

  Photographer found comment helpful.

Up close, personal, and STUNNING!!!!!!!!!! Definitely one of my favorite animals! There's such unbelievable richness in color -- and focus on the eyes for basic editing. Way to GO!

This looks like some of AlexSaberi's handiwork - certainly looks like one of his friends. :-) Beautiful detail and tones.
