    Just a couple of tweaks (I use Capture NX but the same can be done in photoshop by screwing around with masks).

    I highlighted the body of the dear and the head of the deer, and I lightened them up a tad, gave just them a bit more saturation and contrast... which gives kind of a "halo" effect around the deer's body... not much but it helps.

    Then I used Unsharp Mask on just the body & head of the deer and nothing else.

    EDITED: After looking at it I decided to crop it so the animal wasn't centered... I find that if you crop it the way I did it give the animal movement without it moving... the eye can see where it was planning to go, and you can imagine it slowly walking forward...

    Spent less than 2 minutes on it. What do you think? Is it better? If so, why? If not, why?
