About the Image(s)

This deer popped up expectedly for just a few seconds so I snapped it with my I-Phone 11 Pro Max and used its adjustment sliders for highlights, shadows contrast, brightness and saturation. I then moved into Photo Shop CC to clone out a few hot spots, sharpen, resize and crop the image.

Good capture of an unexpected wildlife opportunity. Your post processing looks good. The slide lighting looks good. The image lacks sharpness in original, but you could improve it a little. The hind leg is almost merging with the front leg. It is better to keep the burst mode in mobile camera as a default.   Posted: 11/19/2020 11:28:39

I like the image and your cropping. I brightened the deer in Lightroom, Adjustment brush, to increase illumination.   Posted: 11/19/2020 13:58:12

This is a great snapshot for remembering a wonderful moment. However, the over-bright lighting on the deer's leg and side, and the lack of sharpness, detract from the quality of the capture.   Posted: 11/19/2020 17:15:09

Deer make wonderful subjects. The image, to me, isn't sharp. The iPhone is capable of very sharp images. Did you use digital zoom?   Posted: 11/20/2020 16:20:14

It's nice to meet deer in a forest. Due to low light mobile perhaps used long shutter. You couldn't hold it steady enough. Beside that the deer was moving. Perhaps you used also digital zoom. From unsharp original you can't make a sharp image. It's really just a memory.   Posted: 11/20/2020 17:22:08
