I'm just curious but since you mentioned playing with the silhouette, is this the same shot as the one posted for editing? I only ask because the deer is at a slightly different location and has a different pose than the original.
Oh, sorry, should have mentioned that. Not the same shot, taken about 1 second apart from each other. Lighing and settings were the same, tho. I didn't feel comfortable uploading the RAW file of the best shot of the sequence.
