Deer in the wood

I spotted the fallow deer yesterday in the wood as I passed so when I returned I sopped and managed a few shots before they moved away. I wanted to express the misty, mysteriousness of the winter woodland and felt anordinary photo did not bring out the qualities I'd hoped for, so gave the image a manipulated watercolour effect which I think works.

 

One of the stags has a damaged antler, perhaps broken in the rut.
