The leaping deer image was something I took 10 years ago when staying in a hotel near Gatwick. It was early morning and I was putting my bags in the car when I saw these deer in the field beside me. I quickly dug out a camera, pointed it and grabbed this shot. Unfortunately the shutter was 1/5th of a second and because I was also using a telephoto lens, the result was rather blurred. After resetting the camera I captured a few more images of the deer which were OK, so I never gave this first shot a second thought.
A few years later I was looking through my archived folders and was pleasantly surprised to see how good this actually looked. Some slight contrast adjustments and the outcome is a cracking result, just proving that it is always worth hanging on to things and fully reviewing everything before hitting the button marked delete.
