"Deer at Shiloh "



The Shiloh battlefield is pretty remote and has abundant wildlife. This deer gave me one of the best shooting opportunities of the day.

D800 | Sigma 120-300/2.8 + 1.4TC (non-OS version)
f/4 | 1/160s | ISO-1600

Very nice, Dave.
This deer seems clearly aware of you. The eye contact is great.

Thanks Rassie!

We came upon this on a curve of a narrow road. They were very close – I am surprised it stuck around long enough for me to get a shot.

Thanks Diane!

We had a great trip through Tennessee. We drove up the Natchez Trace Parkway from the Alabama border almost all the way to Nashville. Tennessee is a beautiful state.

I must say that is probably the best deer shot I have seen in this forum. The subject isolation from the surrounding trees, but still very much part of it, is excellent. Seeing the photo first I thought it was taken with your 400f2.8, but was surprised to see it was taken with the Sigma. Obviously a good lens, in the right hands of course.

Thanks Eddie!

This is one of my best deer shots to date. The Sigma is a very good lens – I just don’t get it on the camera very much. It is much easier to use from the driver’s seat of the car. I think this lens (especially the new OS version) is one of the great values in super telephoto land. With the 1.4TC it is quit comparable to the 200-400VR at half the price.

Excellent capture Dave - Pin sharp. It seems a tiny bit too centered to my eye. . . might crop a bit of the right.

Thanks Al!

I think you are correct – I had to crop some of the left side due to OOF foreground distractions so it could use a little trimming on the right.

Nice detail, though I see are so fleeting it is hard to get them in focus and in the light! This is really nice.

Same problem with deer here – a lot of hunting so they spook easily. It is also harder to get a decent background in the fame land around eastern Iowa.

One of those shots where everything worked Dave. If I didn't already have a 300 f2.8 VR - which works really well from the car too - I'd be buying the Sigma next week!

Great capture, Dave! Nice to see more deer here. The Siggy 120-300/2.8 could be the ideal woods/whitetail glass.
