Your edit is really great. Before I saw it (yesterday night) I also and already liked your first photo here - original and untouched - but now I must say I like the edit better. Good work! And I love that deer (and I am not envious --- I am not envious --- I am not envious --- I am not envious --- I am not envious) ... oops, sorry, got carried away but sometimes I have to recite my mantra when I see others manage to get the photos I have always wanted to get but never will -- like a deer up close!
LaFoto, you might want to try going to a nature reserve or some kind of park where the animals are used to humans because I was in a car and the deer (there were several) were about 5 feet away from me and didn't even flinch when we drove up because they were so used to cars. It was really neat. I was happy I finally got a chance to get a decent shot with no zoom.
