    Nice! Are they from Vancouver Island?

    I like the one with a fawn but I would cropping it a bit tighter from the right and maybe bottom, and increase contrast. The grass on the left is in the way though. One thing I found works ok on overexposed grass is decreasing the lightness and saturation (a bit) of yellow.

    Thanks for the feedback.

    Yes, Seal and Goose was in Nanaimo, Fawn was my backyard in Port Alberni. Yea the Fawn I had to be quick, mom was scooting him/her along fast, so it wasn't a great shot. The Fawn was a little underexposed so I had to pull up the shadows quite a bit and it is already a 1:1 crop (2300 x 1700 full size) but I agree I probably should have tried for tighter. Just happened to peer outside at the right time, but barely any time to do anything but push the shutter, here's the next shot....( the one after is just of his hind quarters heading into the brush)

    Nice wildlife images. I've been to Vancouver Island once and have always wanted to return. Lucky you to live there.
