Hey, a few shots from Richmond Park from a couple of weeks back in that period where we were getting mist everyday (and helpfully on the weekend so I can actually take advantage of it).

Any crits always welcome.

Some good shots there, and the venis...deer were very well behaved, giving some great poses. My fave is the second, with the figure in the distance as a focal point; I wonder if it might be worth trimming some from the left side and the bottom, to put the figure in a more prominent position?

Hi Pete, cheers for the comment and I'll have a look later at the figure shot and see if it benefits from your crop, I did go back and forth on whether to keep that area. I might also look at taking a bit off all the edges to make the figure slightly larger in the frame too.

Nice shots. I'm tending to gravitate towards No.2 as well. I like it just as it is because the tree in the front as well as branches on the left hand side are darker and with the lighter misty forest going back, gives it more DOF, thus drawing my eye back towards the person in the distance. Tells a story and keeps me interested in the photo. Very nice indeed. :)

Hi Pete, here's an alternative crop on the figure shot. Still not sure which I prefer. I did try a square crop but cutting off that diagonal branch felt uncomfortable.

Cheers, I was very happy when I saw him walk so obligingly into that little frame .

Thanks, it really does help with these woodland shots which are so messy a lot of the time.

Thanks David, much appreciated.
