    Here are a few pictures form the cattle drive I went on today. I drove the rear flagging truck. It was a lot of fun to watch. It was overcast and started to rain when the cows finally reached their destination.

    I took lots of OOF pictures. These are probably the best and I've done some pp to them.

    I like #5 a LOT! Nice work.
    #1 I would like more if the focus was sharper on the cowboy rather than the cows.

    I'll bet this was fun!

    1 - Looks like it needs a Marlboro logo. :)
    2 & 3 - I imagine you had very little control over your shooting angle, but wish I could see this scene taken from the side (horses and cattle traveling across the shot) rather than head-on.
    5 - This is fantastic, I'll bet the young man's parents would love to have a nice print of this one. I suppose composition wise it would be nice to have him slightly higher in the shot, he and the horse are almost scraping the bottom of the frame.

    I prefer number 4.
    Because that is what happens on cattle drives.

    It's a cattle drive, not a little kid drive trying to be cute holding a horse by the reins which is why number 5 is a goner.

    Number 6 can take a hike , as well.
    Number 5 is the shyt.
    I like it.

    I like all of the shots a lot, especially #4. You can really feel the vastness of the wilderness.

    But I have to question you as to why you shot at ISO 800? The first one was a bit grainy, so I checked your Exif data. I can understand bumping it up for the shots where the cows are running, but the others, I would've had it at 100 if I could get away with it.

    Still really nice shots, though. You certainly don't see that too much anymore.

    Shot on auto, just take a look at the awful settings your camera chose for the first shot ISO800 1/6000 F5.6 that shot could have been nice but for the noise
