    I got out early today, took some shots of some brave deer......even got a couple sparring. It was early, and the sun was still pretty low so I had lots of shade and shaddows to contend with....please leave me your C & C....

    I REALLY like #4. In #3, it looks like your focus is on the deer in the back.

    I like #7 as well - do you have a polarizer filter? I'd like to see a deeper blue sky in that one.


    I live in Morgan County, TN - about a 2 hour drive from Cade's Cove. It's nice there year-round, huh?

    Don't have any filters yet, or even an SLR camera. I'm just getting started with a prosumer so I can get a grasp of the manual controls ( Kodak ZD710 ). I have my heart set on a D80.

    And yes, Cades Cove is great, all year too.

    Thanks for the feedback.....

    You could get this close to the deer?? Wow, how so? Why did they not run away from you? Ours here would ...

    I do like the fourth and last photo best of the series, the close-up is nicely sharp ... and the sky is amazingly blue in the last. That is what a normal Tennessee winter looks like?

    Oh, and by the way ... I can hardly look at your threads since your avatar actively drives me away from them (I don't deal well with flashing lights, see).

    My sister has that camera - it surprised me how nice the photos are that come out of it.

    As for a polarizer filter...A trick some use is to hold a pair of polarized sunglasses in front of the lens. I haven't tried it myself, but from what I've heard, it'll do in a pinch.

    At Cade's Cove you can almost pet them, they are that tame. During the fall, especially, there are easily 500 vehicles a day that go through there (possibly up to 1,000 even). There is no hunting allowed in the cove, so the deer have become accustomed to all the traffic and the people that come around.

    These are not deer that face any kind of hunting pressure. They see tourists all day long everyday. It was still rare to get this close to the bucks though. However, these bucks were still in rut, especially 5 and 6. They were also feeding for better than two and a half hours, not very normal. Not sure what the deal was, but the bucks were in rare form today. BTW....not much snow in Tennessee either.....

    PS, I like your input....if the avatar bothers you that bad I'll change it.....

    #4 is fabulous! Love the detail in the face and antlers.

    Very nice series. Cades Cove has got to be as close to heaven on earth as anywhere in the world. Nice work.
