    Deer from the BWC (I am not addicted - no really I am not -----) from aages ago (slow editor) but here they are at last.
    All taken with Canon 400D, Canon 70-200mm f2.8 IS + 1.4 TC

    A bright day, though I think on the whole the exposures work, what I think does need changing is the crop of the shots - I think some creative cropping can move these from meh to slightly better than meh (And yes I do like my middle AF point ;))

    eh? now how did that fox sneak in?
    bars defiantly affected this shot a lot - though there is something about it I like - still no idea if it works or not, and I had to add a lot of contrast to most areas (barring the middle of the shot) to reduced the effect that the bars had.


    Any comments/crits welcome - thank you

    1 and 2 my favourites although i dont usually like the body and legs to be cut off.

    Also find the background shadow a bit distracting.

    Would have been great if the fox was looking at you...

    Thanks PT - honestly I wanted to get a closer crop in general, but not enough range (and some silly person put a fence in the way) and zooming out would have shown the fencing surrounding.

    I still don't know how I feel about the fox shot -
