Couple of deer
Posted By: Riktar, 03-08-2009, 06:18 AM

While driving with my K20D and Promaster 18-200mm lens I came across these 2. This was taken through the passenger window of my truck (After stopping of course) in a matter of 3 seconds.

Both images are cropped since I did not have the time to zoom as much as I wanted.

PP in CS3 with auto levels and Smart Sharpening.

Great series, the two images tell well what happened, I guess!

Excellent timing - I have spoted a few of those from the road in my travels , however never been quick enough to capture them. Well done.

Thanks for the comments. Yup they sure didn't. When I said 3 seconds I was speaking literally!!!
The ONLY reason I got the shot was for whatever reason I had not turned the camera off (As I noticed while reaching for it) which saved me a few tenths of a second.

Sometimes being absent minded works out!
