I shot this CA Mulie doe in the eastern Sierra a few days ago in the early, smoke tainted warm light while she was standing in some rabbit brush. I was actually out trying for some turning Aspens but, hey. D500, Nikon 18-200 lens, 1/4000th, f 8.0, 150mm, ISO 4000, AI Clear, hand held, cropped to 5568 x 3712.
Very nice Dave. I really like the inclusion of the yellow flowers in front of and behind the deer. Nice sharpness. The background is interesting as well without being distracting. Nice frame.
Beautiful frame, the yellow flowers really add a lot to the frame !
In this kind of frame, I would have probably preferred a lower POV, to add the OOF yellow flowers, to reduce the BG in the middle field and to make the deer stand out.
This image is so beautiful Dave! I don’t want to critique it or find anything wrong with it because it is just so pleasing to my eyes.
