The Morning Gift

I love looking into the backyard while having breakfast. This morning I noticed something different.  Three deer resting in the woods right off our yard.
Knowing that they could also see me, I carefully got up and grabbed my Nikon D200 with a Nikkor VR ,  55-200mm zoom. Wanting a narrow zone of focus, I set the ISO to 500, Av 5.6 to allow for a fast shutter.  Very slowly I opened the back sliding door and moved onto the back deck.  They saw me of course, stared and slowly got up.  I fired off about 12 shots and went back inside.  They hung around for about 5 more minutes than casually walked off.  Of the images, I liked this one which can be seen in the original color image without edit.  I thought a black and white development would look nice.  Thus I edited in Topaz B&W Effects 2 using Hi Contrast with some added vignetting and selective dodging and burning.
What a nice morning experience!  Enjoy, Jeff
