Super - muted greens and greys and browns all perfectly harmonised. No need for enhancements of colour - all as nature intended.

Thank you! Yes, I like having pictures that are 'natural'. All the electronic voodoo isn't my thing.

Thank you!!! The frame above is the full frame with no crop whatsoever applied.

Below you can see a crop of the original. When I upload though a lot of the detail gets destroyed. On my screen you can see his hairs and other details that makes the photo pop out more.

Thank you! The trick to this was picking a good day. The light was sort of overcast so the shadows weren't too bad. Also sneaking up on a deer like that is a whole different story.

Like I said above, I like the 'natural' feel of photos. Naturally I use lightroom and all that stuff, but to me that is often to correct the errors in the camera. What the camera sees is not what your eye sees. Your eyeball is way more dynamic than your camera sensor. My goal in post processing is to try and get a 'what my eye actually saw' feel out of it.
