Can others edit my Photos
Photos NOT OK to edit
Going in nature to take photos, sometimes you get nothing ... but sometimes it's just much more than you hoped for.
Beautiful April morning. I had hugged a tree and two young deer were coming towards me...30m...20m...5m... I took my photos (they were not disturbed by the shutter's noise...!!!???) and as didn't wanted to scare them, I started whistling slowly ...and they walked away slowly (looking from time to time in my direction).

Canon 6D mark II + Tamron 150-600mm, 1/1250, f/6.3, ISO 400.
The sun was in front of me. I was in Manual mode, RAW.
I saved it as jpg and in GIMP I wrote my name on it...Nothing else.


Opinions ???
Under exposed a tad- here's a 2 min edit in Photoshop 2022

It sounds like you had a nice adventure with them. If it were me I would have a go at it with my favorite post processing software. I would brighten up the deer without bringing up the background too much. I think the highlights in the grass surrounding the deer are a bit distracting. I would try and tame those also. And if you see them again, with those budding antlers, I might try for a head shot.
Thank you both for advices I'll try to play little with it in post processing.
I was thinking to crop it to see better the head with the water drops on his snout...but it becomes too grainy.
Yes, this encounter was just...magical.
