Dead deer foot.
Posted By: TheOsOProject, 01-27-2008, 02:27 PM

I stumbled upon a dead deer in the woods

I Hope I don't freak anyone out posting pics of dead animals but I like the shot for some reason.

Not me!

I've posted my share of dead fish, deer skulls, skeletons of misc. here and they've actually been well received.

I like this composition. Maybe a little more DOF could have helped to get everything in sharp focus?

Let's see what others say...

Thanks for the comments. I wish I would of had more time to mess with DOF but I was just finishing up my walk in the woods and my batteries were almost dead. I had to take them out and rub them in my hands to warm them up just to get this one last shot so I had to go with what I had.

I'm sure the deer will be there a while so maybe I'll go back tomorrow and try a few more shots. I learned a valuable lesson today about always bringing extra batteries with me.

This type of shot intrigues me as to the rest of the story....

Probably better left to the imagination as others can come to their own conclusions.

I like it. Kind of 'clues' from a crime scene.

Interesting................. Seen my share of dead critters. I like the shallow DOF - it kinda lets you imagine what's "up there". Sorta removes the specifics of death. Getting way too esoteric!!
