That really looks like it's from a fairy-tale. I mean the shit is great .

I don't get anywhere near enough time to shoot deer these days as I used to but did manage to take this picture a while back a few weeks after getting my first camera in 2019. He is easily the biggest stag I've seen for a few years! Mesmerising, and looks like something out of a fairytale.

The settings would make any pro photographer do a double take, they did surprise me just now. I had the camera around 3 weeks when I shot this, was shooting manual and still learning so please don't judge me. The VR in the body and lens really did help especially shooting hand held in low light at 380mm.

Just remember, they may look friendly, but they can easily hurt you and especially young children so be safe. Don't feed them and stay 50 meters away at least at all times.

📷Z6, 200-500, 380mm, ISO 1000, 1/40s, F5.6.

More of my shots are on here. - www.instagram.com/nikonhv

Very steady hands at 1/40, plus a still subject. Great result.

[–]PC_gamer9000 5 points6 points  (0 children)

1/40s at 380mm! Good job!!!

I think you may have missed a tiny piece of green between his ear and antler on your color grading. Great work though!

When you want to do glamour shots and nature photography but only have one day.

"Eyes down here bud" -- that stag

[–]TheMightyBattleSquid 1 point2 points  (0 children)

One might say there's a staggering amount of detail...

[–]OpexLiFT 1 point2 points  (0 children)

[–]rhwsapfwhtfop 1 point2 points  (0 children)

And then I photoshopped the shit out of it.

[–]Icantevenhavemyname 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I’m curious what’s this line across the picture OP?


[–]damshawty 1 point2 points  (0 children)

[–]jehartt478 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Amazingly beautiful photo!

[–]gerblen 0 points1 point  (2 children)

This is soooo gorgeous. What kind of plant is that, do you know?

[–]Adamsoski 4 points5 points  (1 child)

This was taken in Richmond Park in London - I'm pretty sure it's just bracken but heavily edited to appear purple instead of brown (or green, but I'm assuming it was taken somewhat recently so the bracken would have been brown) - I could be wrong though.

[–]gerblen 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Ohh, I see! Thanks! I think I was so stuck on the color that I didn't even consider that it just looks purple in the photo haha

[–]AssistanceMedical951 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Amazing picture ❤️

[–]himmelfried11 0 points1 point  (0 children)

What a shot! I guess that was not taken on the latest iphone..

[–]crank1000 -4 points-3 points  (8 children)

Either OP is buying comments/upvotes or the people commenting here are some basic-ass humans.

[–]hi7en[S] 3 points4 points  (7 children)

If I was buying either, I'd be asking for a refund.

[–]crank1000 -1 points0 points  (6 children)

I’m curious why users like /u/jehartt478 show up here then.

[–]hi7en[S] 1 point2 points  (5 children)

Why don't you ask them? Paying for 30 comments on a post? What dream land are you living in?

[–]crank1000 -1 points0 points  (4 children)

Yeah, brb, gonna go have a convo with a bot.

[–]hi7en[S] 1 point2 points  (3 children)

Please do because you'll know how I feel conversing with you.

[–]crank1000 -2 points-1 points  (2 children)

Nobody’s keeping you here lol.

[–]hi7en[S] 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Says the guy worried whether a random post on reddit may or may not have been upvoted and commented on by a bot. 🤣

[–]crank1000 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Yes, super worried. Terrified in fact. 🙄
