To See & Be Seen

One final picture from last weekend, before I head to my parents' house to enjoy the Fulton Fall Folk Festival (I'll call it the 4Fs from now on) this weekend. If you've been keeping up with the Pennsylvania Wildlife Photographer, you'll know about the deer below already. They are quite trusting when people familiar to them are near, and and we got to stop in for a visit .


Normally I avoid placing shadows in the frame, but this time I thought they added a sense of being watched to the deer in the picture, and also helped to show how close we were to them.

I have a feeling Salty and I may have dueling 4F blogs come Sunday :)

Came over from Chad's blog... enjoy your photos very much! Thanks for the look!

(The photo through the leaf was very cool!)

Awesome, Amy. Very creative image.

Actually the photo says a lot about wildlife and people and it is good.

Stunning shadows, I was to busy to notice the wildlife at first... a great capture and as Abe say, your picture says a lot for the wild life and how it is interacted with.

I have yet to try for the leaf shot, however as I was taking pictures of the sun setting last night I came across a hole in a large stone gate post. I thought I'd try that. You and Chad give me the idea for it with your filter shots so thank you both.
I go some great star burst effects, I have one of them posted today if you have time nip over and check your inspiration out.

How neat to see 4 of our little blogging community together. It has been great fun to learn from you. I hope to try the leaf filter technique this weekend!

Yes, I agree. The shadows draw your eye toward the deer.

The shadows really add that special touch to this picture with the deer; very impressive.

Thanks so much for the compliment on Wednesday’s post!

Great shot Amy, I think the shadows tell the whole story here. Love the "family" posts. It has been interesting to get a different perspective from each of you.
