What a striking image of a magnificent animal! I have to wonder how and on what level anyone could score this with a 1, much less three people. Truly wonderful!!!

Wow! Beautiful work! You can certainly see Mark Simms magic touch in this. . .but you are an excellent learner, and I'm sure you couldn't have gotten this wonderful result without an amazing photo to start with.

Congratulations on your first (of many I'm sure) ribbons.

MAGNIFICENT
the expressions you captured are priceless, very hard to get without the animals spooking and running off (and then all you are left with is the tail end)
Would make a great Christmas card

Fabulous image. What a treat for everyone at DPC to see this all week. I just feel bad for the five poor souls that don't have a clue about photography (giving you a 3 or less) Congrats on the Yellow!

Congrats on your first ribbon and 7+ score! Well deserved, but not a surprise given your portfolio. I think you need some new goals - you just hit 1-6 in one shot!

Great shot but the halo'ing is mad (not being a halo-nazi as it works sometimes but I guess I lost the connection to nature somehow here), got to :/ 6

  Photographer found comment helpful.

Haha! This image is a hunter's dream, but my own shooting desires aside, the composition is great and the post processing is very well done. I like how the light frames the 'lead' elk without overwhelming him. Overall, well balanced and executed--8

You continue to raise the bar.
