Re: A Proud Stag

That is a fantastic capture - nothing much larger than roe deer round here, and there are actually more muntjack. Partner thinks yours is about 8 years old?

thanks Caz, its still a little soft, but hardly suprising given the slowish shutter speed.

Richmond Park is about to carry out an annual cull, so I have no idea how old they are.

You've certainly got his attention - He's looking you straight in the eye; aren't you glad you don't have antlers too, ben?

Re: A Proud Stag

I love this shot. The colours are so good and realistic and you managed to capture him looking straight at you too.

One to be proud of imho.

Re: A Proud Stag

Hi,
Is this the same image as on the eye of the camera post?, the image is a great shot and the eye contact make the image even more so, despite the softness, which incedently does not detract from the images ability to catch the interest of the viewer, It would have been absolutely top notch if a little sharper. I prefered this image in the other post and still consider it a great shot. Itis a shame that culling has to be undertaken,to manage the herd, but no doubt the meat brings in extra income.

Re: A Proud Stag

Hi all,
Thanks for the positive feedback!

This is not the same imag,e it was a landscape shot, cropped to portrait.

I will certainly be revisiting Richmond Park on a brighter day to get some nice pin sharp images.

As for the culling, yes, it is a shame, but also it has to be a positive thing that it is neceassary, it must mean that the deer are thriving well there.

Re: A Proud Stag

A superb shot Ben! I think the softness adds to the atmosphere somehow! What lens did you use to capture such a great shot?

Thanks Jocelyn,

haha, Ian is going to get bored of me writing this line!

Its the Canon 75-300mm lens that I purchased off Ian a couple of years (?) back. I also had the camera on a monopod, a trusty little Manfrotto that I always leave in the car.

The Canon lens, although very basic, is the one I use for pretty much all my wildlife photography, and, providing you have enough light, has proven to be excellent.
