    I want to pet the deer. :)

    As far as critique goes... the shot looks really soft. Did you use a tripod? It could also be a limitation of the lens... it appears to be wide open at that length (aperture is 5.3, I'm assuming it's the 70-300?) Or maybe this is a tight crop?

    Technical stuff aside, the composition doesn't work for me. I know for me, it's tough to photograph animals that are horizontally oriented and get anything I like. I shot some ducks in water a few weeks ago and didn't get any that I liked because they were all facing perpendicular to me. Maybe if you could get the deers attention enough to have him look in your direction, you'd have a little more to work with.

    As above very soft, and looks like a very cheap lens 70-300 tamron or Sigma ?

    The colours look a bit too dull to me. But that can all be just opinion.

    I agree with the soft image comments. I also think the colors are a bit dull. Though it is tough to shoot when everything appears dead. The wider aperture setting doesn't work for me (assuming you used a wide aperture because of the depth of field). I personally would have used a higher f-stop number. I'm curious to what equipment you used.
