Mule deer doe, handheld with Canon 1.4x teleconverter late afternoon in low light.

Cropped slightly, lots of neg space to convey the "search", people may not like that. Very little post processing, shot RAW, a wee bit of fill light, Nik pro contrast filter, soft light gaussian blur layer at half opacity, darkened edges, unsharp mask.

Crop is a little awkward but a lovely shot and the space to the left does suggest off-screen attention.

A slight bump in color may give it more impact. otherwise nice.

I like the capture, but a a couple of string grass there is really distracting especially the one that appears to be in between the nose and ear of your subject.

Great capture. Very nice focus on the deer and the long blades of grass. The out of focus background adds very nicely to this shot. Well done.

Great capture. If only the grass over the right ear had been edited out, tricky to do though.

You did capture it in a very aware state. My guess is your the "predator"

I'd love to have his legs included in the shot. Lovely bokeh.
