    Hi all,
    just wanted your thoughts on a pic I took recently
    Driving out in the country, saw this cheeky lady staring out at me, and felt she merited a picture

    Taken with Nikon D70, 18-70mm @ 220mm handheld, 1/1000, f/5.0, RAW
    Imported into Nikon capture, and WB adjusted slightly before taking it into PS CS --> experimented with different levels settings, but finally settled on the one shown. I think it looks best with the completely blown sky. The actual sky wasn't that different, as it was an overcast day.

    I look forward to your comments, thanks in advance

    I'd say crop out the ear tag first off. Also the sky is blown out and doesn't really fit here. The expression on the cow it funny. Another suggestion would be to up the saturation a bit so the grass is more green. Oh and the grass under the cow near the right hand of the pic is blurred, don't know if you photoshopped something there but it looks it.

    That cows expression is funny, iam actually laughing out loud. Cant help wondering what she is thinking!

    I agree to clone out the ear tag too, its a bit distracting, reminds you that the poor animal might well end up on your plate at some point
