I was sitting at the dinner table when these two ran out on the hill. Heavy crop. Hopefully the 150-600mm Sigma Contemporary I just purchased can get me a little closer. :-D

What is interesting to me is that one elk hasn't shed his antlers, and the other is showing new antler growth.

I believe the one who has shed to be the herd bull that dissapeared shortly after the rut. I wondered if it had to do with the testosterone release associated with a breeding bull vs a non breeding bull. I have blown out a pair of shoes looking for sheds, no elk yet but about a half dozen deer.

Thanks, Stu, for your comments. I initially cropped the image with more space at the bottom, but I cropped it tighter in order to draw the viewers to the fawn's eyes which, at least to me, is the main attraction with the image.

That's a different way of thinking. . But to me, if you had left more at the bottom, it would put much more attention on the fawn's eyes, because then the fawn's eyes would be more toward the center of the frame.

The closer something is to the center of the frame, the more attention it naturally draws. . The more it is moved out toward the perimeter of the frame, the less attention it draws. . So by cropping off some of the bottom, you moved the fawn's eyes further from the center of the frame and closer to the bottom edge of the frame, effectively reducing how much attention they would draw.

I think what you did may have had the opposite effect than what you had intended.


.


"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "moot point", NOT "mute point".

I don't disagree with your thought process on this, but I've tried both ways, i.e., more space at the bottom and the tighter crop, and I found this posted version to be slightly more appealing. I say "slightly" because I didn't find one version greatly outdoing the other.
