Default Deer

While we were driving through Valley Forge National Park in Philadelphia, I saw this beautiful deer with her baby. She didn't get scared or embarassed so I could take her some photos. I hope you'll like one of them.

I would bump up iso to 200 or 400, and stop down to f7.1, it will make the shot look sharper.

Very cool that she is looking right at you.

Thanks for the advice Shoturtle. I messed it up because I never expected to see something like this from the car, at 2 feets in front of me. I still forget to think photographically when this kind of things happen. It's just lack of experience I have to admit it.
Thanks, Ordo! It looks amazing. I'll try to practice Orton because I like the effect. I just started learning PS Elements...

Don't feel like you missed the shot, given the same amount of time I think 99% of us will not have the right setting also. You did a great job getting the shot, and from a moving car as well.

Thank you for encouraging me. It's just a matter of practice to stop admiring and start "shooting" right. I just knew there's something not really great about the photo and that's why I posted it. Now that I know, I'll move forward.

What I like to do,is always reset my camera to the sharpest aperture of my lens, and leave things at auto iso, when ever I put it down. That way, I get at least a sharp photo.

That might work also. There are other people saying that whenever you close the camera, you should leave it in auto mode, just to make sure you don't miss anything unexpected.

I agree with Shoturtle's comments but, I have to say you got a rare shot there with the faun nursing. Nice capture!
