    I agree - too dark, you can't really see the bullock's face... oh, and there's a fence in the way.

    Sorry

    It's tightly cropped, so there isn't much context. It's all bullock. Pulling back so we can see some of the surroundings would help, I think.

    Would brightening up the image make a difference?

    I had to open this just to make sure what a "bullock" is..... :D

    I'd agree it's too dark an image. Best way to get shots of these pasture-bound critters is to try to get over the fence, so it doesn't distract, if that would be possible.

    I have no problem with the fence. I have no problem with the tight crop that possibly excludes any thing that would detract or divert from the subject (the bullock). But I would like the photo more if there were more detail in the shadows--I agree with the notion that the photo is under-exposed.

    Thanks for the replies all.
    So the main problem is it's too dark.
    Would brightening it up in Photoshop help?

    Let me know.

    Hello ddunn,

    brightening it up would work for me.

    They're called "steers" in the USA.

    They are only steers when they've been casterated. So this animal (according to the evidence revealed in the picture) could be a number of things. It could be a bullock, a steer, a bull, or an ox.

    I like the pic regardless of what it is.
