OK, well here it is. Is it my best of 2007? I don't think so, I probably peaked with my "Lord of the Fall" shot that is winning me accolades left, right and center on other websites and published in a magazine. Also made a few sales of it.

This is the same deer, probably about 15 mins later after I stalked him into the woods for a while. He stopped in this beam of light raised his head and bellowed! Was great to watch!

I am hoping the voter will be kind as they have seen this before, I like the pose, so hoping that will go in my favour.

Predictions? anything in top 20 would be good, top ten would be amazing.. score? dunno, I'd Like to think 7+ but will hope for a 6.7, 6.8.. Lets hope I am wrong eh?!

The backlighting is pleasant however the red colour cast is not.

King of the forest! That noise can give you the chills. Noise from the elk not noise in your picture! Very cool -BB

Great capture, yet for me, some of the post processing has actually detracted from your image.

Sweet light, nice use of foreground focus with the bits of leaves at the top, the ground at the lower left.

A bit too much fake glow/softness for my tastes but a beautiful photo nonetheless.
