Good Morning All,

This is the picture I took on the country side where a family house owns these stags and deers.

I took this shot in this evening when the bright rays of Sun were falling in the surroundings. I like the light falling on this group of animals, who were so curious of my presence (I guess) and looking at me constantly, watching each and every step and move of mine :-)

Hope you enjoy the scene.

Open to your critiques/comments/suggestions as always.

Best regards,

Hi Paras,
A nice 50/50 capture of reality and reflection.
Beautiful warm lighting hitting the animals.
But I have to agree with mrichat, I cannot see real sharpness in this shot.
Very good light management.
My regards,

Francis Xavier

It's a beautiful natural scene, Paras.
Lovely back and side lighting. I love the reflections as well.
This is a landscaping image though the sharpness is fine with me.

Bom dia Paras
The beauty of scene is really incredible...I never been in this good situation...but if one day I would I want a camera with me.
Um abraço

Quelle concentration de biches et de cerfs fantastique avec leur reflet sur le plan d'eau, mervielleuse iamge quelle vue animalière, superbe compo de bien beaux animaux.

Bravo et amitié


Hi Paras,
This is WONDERFUL. I love the composition. The fact that they are ALL staring at you and such nice reflections on the water. Nicely done--- it's a fav. TFS Julie

This is a vision of paradise? What a great image Paras. In MHO I think a little more clarity would be good for your beautiful picture.

Hi. Wonderful shot, pleasing natural colours, the reflection adds so much. So good to see a shot that doesn't follow the current trend that over sharpened plus over saturation equals a good photograph, here the picture speaks for itself, well done, Phil.

Hi Paras ,
Very nice capture , full of "wild" life . I like this kind of picture because I ' m often in the nature , looking for stags , roe deers , etc ... But in Belgium , they are rather rare , if I compare with this shot !
Light , reflections on the water , everything is really good , here ! Ernest

Wow! I've been hoping to photograph at least one of them but you have the whole herd! I think they are just as curious about you. Awesome pov and good dof with nice details. Wonderful colors. Well done, tfs.

Really a unique moment, these animals are normally so timorous that you were so lucky to capture them in so unusual pose.
And no one is moved. I also like the reflections, it seems a scene from a tale...

Oh yes, they are curious, beautiful scene of nature.
A memorable moment for sure.
Very nice lighting and clever pov that makes us admire the reflections.
Adorable view with a good balance.
Well done my friend !

Hi Paras,
What a beautiful group of Deers!
Nice point of view and great reflection on water,

I really like this one a lot, which you've captured at such a good moment.

Hi Paras,

Sorry, I missed this splendid photo!
You captured a rare scene with those deers well reflected in the water.
Very good management of light. Gorgeous photo!


Hello Paras, what a beautiful picture! Nearly all the animals looking your way too.
The reflection is just wonderful, well done.
The evening sun gives a lovely soft light to the scene.
Others have commented on the sharpness,I don't think that it is of much importance for this shot,as Phil says, the picture speaks for it self.
Tfs, regards Jean.

I am putting this into my favourites, thank you.

Bonjour Paras,

Quelle chance de pouvoir obtenir un tel cliché, un troupeau entier de bches, cerfs et faons, c'est un moment magique que l'on ne voit que très rarement, le cliché est magnifique!!!!
Bravo toutes mes félicitations pour ce travail!!!!
