Another thing about #2 that would have made it even better would be to have positioned the deer closer to the right edge of the frame. Envision it, if you will, with its hindquarters fairly close to the right edge, and without the distraction of the trees - with the pose and lighting you got, it would be extraordinary. As it is, it's good. The lighting is excellent.
That's my tuppence worth...
