Picture has been made in a nearby wildlife Park. On this day it has been raining cats and dogs so no visitors has been around. I found myself crouching under a umbrella to protect the lense against the rain which is hardly visible on the picture.
Thank`s for all of your comments which helps me to sharp they eye for the next challenge.

I might have cropped a bit off the top to pull the subject in a bit more... but this is lovely.

I may or may not be voting, so please do not equate my comment with any score.

Beautiful work. Natural shot in natural environs. Nice light accentuation on the antlers and good exposure, DOF. There needs to be some engagement between the subject and the viewer, of which there is none. The border is common at DPC but not NG except where only one black frame is used generally at the bottom of the image for text. I was in two minds to frame my entry but chose not to. There's a fair amount of CA in the lens visible at the tip/edges of the antlers and the vertical neckline., i.e. at the areas of most contrast. Not an image killer per se but it does irritate any nature tog if the lens portrays these characteristics as all your shots will have this blemish/lens flaw. Whilst I'm not of the opinion that a catchlight in the eye is required, I've found this to be the consensus online. Yours doesn't have one. Publishable? Fair chance, if tied into the text.

This is lovely. Wouldn't it be perfect if he had a catch light in that eye? 8
