Have seen this little whitetail buck several times this winter. Pretty easy to recognize him.:-)

Thanks Steve. We’ve had at least another foot of snow since I last seen him. I look forward to seeing him again before he looses his antlers.ߙ

Sorry for the slow reply, I have been snowed in a cell dead zone for a week now. I tried several different exposure levels and the buck is too dark or when the buck is properly exposed the sky is blown out. I might try a little vignetting to tone down the sky a bit. The buck was behind a no trespassing sign so I was stuck shooting from the spot I was at.
The sun was behind me but the clouds may have been thinner behind the subject creating a bit of backlight. When given a choice I will take a non sky background most times. It is more personal preference than anything. Your buck appears to be more eye level than mine, usually when I have a sky backround I am shooting uphill.

Randy!

I hope that your time snowed in was fun, or at least that it provided you with some opportunities to get out and photograph the snow scenes around you.

Thanks so much for getting back to me about this. . I was really interested in why you didn't want that buck on the skyline.

Yeah, sky backgrounds are tough to expose, for the reason you say; it demands pushing the limits of dynamic range. . Even a dark grey sky is so much brighter than the deer that it's hard to expose to get them both okay looking.

I normally just expose as brightly as possible without blowing the sky out completely. . I'll take test shots and keep adding exposure until I get some blinkies in the sky. . As long as the blinkies are small and evenly dispersed, the exposure will be pretty good. . Then when I edit the images, I can raise the exposure on the deer way up to even things out nicely. . It's definitely an "expose to the right" kind of situation.

Ain't that always the way it is?! . Deer are never easy.

Yes, it sure is. . It's good to know that the reason you wanted him off the skyline is because that's simply what you prefer. . It'd be a shame for someone to avoid skyline opportunities because they thought there was no way to get a proper looking exposure. . Of course, there are some situations when it is darn near impossible, but as long as its overcast and not sunny, skylines can usually be managed all right.

Thank you Tom, I did do a little hiking. I have about a hundred head of elk wintering just over the hill, but they just opened a late cow season. All roads accessing the area are drifted shut, it is about a 2 mile hike up a steep hill from here, but hoping for some photo opportunities with some of the hunting pressure off them for a time.

Wow!

He appears to be a very big, fully mature buck. . Did you happen to look for shed antlers in the area?

Thank you, Tom
If there were any, they'd probably be covered by falling snow.
Definitely will look next time-Cheers!
