Ok, I guess the whitetail were just playing tricks on me. Silly whitetail!
Here is one from Sunday evening, after my double-racked buck(s) separated themselves a little. For two nights in a row, the local bucks were being VERY cooperative! I love it when that happens. Comments and critique are always welcome.
Thank you, Antero! They are a prolific breed, to be sure. I had never heard that Finland have whitetail. That is very interesting. Whitetail hunting is big business in the US, and it sounds like it is there, as well. Thank you for replying!
Great shot....love the saturation and detail. I took out a cloth and wiped my monitor though thinking I had something on it. Check your sensor....looks like you have debris on it....see the white spots between the 2 bucks ? Great shot though.....really like that one !!
Aart, thank you very much for looking, and for your comments! I wondered myself if it might not be too saturated. I actually did tone it down a little in PS prior to posting, but perhaps it needs a little more? I toned down the saturation on the greens a bit, but surprisingly, that only affected the grass in the foreground, and had no effect on the trees in the background. I thought that was odd. I don't know; I really like the contrast of their red coats against the lush green of the alfalfa field. But I suspected that it might be a bit more saturated than some would like. Thank you for the critique!
Hi Kelly, I looked at you post again. The background seems to e fine. Where I came from this very, lush green is not common and I may be 100% wrong in my evaluation. Since I started to do most of my direct PP in Lr. To fiddle with the individual color channels in Light Room is easy and very rewarding. I am sure Ps can do anything Lr can do and more but I find Lr to be much easier.
Like Aart, when I first saw your picture, I thought the saturation was excessive. But I wasn't on my main computer and I've learned to keep my mouth shut about exposure and saturation until I've seen the photos on a calibrated system. But I just wanted to chime in regarding a green saturation change not affecting the trees. The most likely reason is post-processing software, or Adobe's at least, regards most trees as yellow. You can try reducing yellow saturation. Or in Adobe products you can use "TAT" (targeted adjustment tool) to click on a point in the image and drag up or down to increase/decrease saturation of that particular color.
