Is this art?
I had the rare chance to shoot a deer, this morning. The creature appeared behind my house as I was getting ready to leave for Bridgewater, I was lucky enough to have my gear bag close at hand. I carefully and quickly attached the 70-300mm VR to my D60, got out of the car, and expected the animal to bolt - but it didn't. I squeezed off about eight frames. I had to bump up the ISO to 800, and, still, at 1/125th second wide-open @ f/5.6, the files were underexposed. Thankfully, I shoot RAW and can fix most mistakes plus I made it into a b/w file.
I added some noise/grain to this for effect, kind of looks like a painting....
