    Thanks everyone..

    Turvey.. I would have never thought of the unedited photo, totally makes sense though.

    Packmule... Here's the breakdown of each photo..

    Pic #1.. Lighting adjustments. But with that said, the color was there,thats why we chose the spot, just needed a little help bringing it out.
    Pic #2.. The dirt on the rock is actually air brushed and was not done in the field. The shot behind the shoulder, completely removed the blood.
    Pic #3.. Cleaned the blood up around the mouth, air brushing.
    Pic #4.. Nothing but probably should have cleaned the blood up a little from the shot.
    Pic #5.. Lighting adjustments.
    Pic #6.. Lighting adjustments.

    I know the blood is part of it and as hunters we are used it but I like to clean it up for the photo album. As a boy and even now, I love looking through photo albums, all the memories and experiences. There is not a single big game animal Ihave harvested that is not in my photo album. Even every single doe

    Reason I was asking was bc the top one and the bottom 2 have a halo-effect when they're resized for phone viewing.

    I don't have very many pics left. I was "that idiot" who didn't back up computer hard drives. Also somewhere along the way I quit taking pics of does bc I was having to shoot so many of them that it turned into work.

    How is this? I know it doesn't have the rifle in the picture but I tried to set it up so that the antlers were sky-lighted. It was shot at a low angle to emphasize the size of the animal, and it captured the hilly terrain we were hunting. I always try to take a good harvest photo, so any and all recommendations are welcomed!

    Fairly good shot. I would suggest not propping his head up on the log and sitting on your rear end to scale the buck up a bit. Tuck his tongue in and don't forget to use the highest resolution on your camera. I would also suggest moving him to your right to get a less obstructed background so we can get a better feel for his antlers.

    Not to bad. I would sit on your rear end to get lower behind the buck to give him the visual priority and prop him up on his brisket. Tip your cap up a touch to get some light on your face and turn the buck more toward the sun. As you can see with this angle, the sun cast a deep shadow across the bucks face.
