Pixel Peepers’ Notes & Newbie Hints & Tips:

There’s a little retouching on this shot.
There is a bench in the background that I covered with bracken to stop it distracting from the stag. I did this with a few seconds of pixel copying.
When grading, I opened up the shadows, to reveal detail in the background trees, as they were rather dark on the RAW file.
This crop is around a half of the frame, taken on a Lumix LX15.
