This photo was submitted by Douglas Lowe. It's a good subject and the exposure is only off by a little. I would suggest brightening the photo by changing the highlight level. I like that the subject is really sharp, but the composition could use a little help. The placement of the deer in the frame seems a bit awkward to me. I think if it was on the right side of the photograph it would have seemed more natural since it's looking forward and towards the left. Since you obviously can't fix that now, try cropping either a tighter horizontal or vertical. You don't need all of that out of focus landscape surrounding the deer.
