    Hi all, just got back from a week in Scotland and I think I nearly wore the shutter out.

    Here's a couple of locals that we met at John O'Groats.

    Is it me or does the nearer sheep have 6 legs and the further one only has 3??? :D

    I love the shot...although it may be a bit more appealing with a landscap crop. I don't see the balance that I think a square crop needs.

    But those are just my 2 cents.

    Ahhh, Scotland. Someday.

    Nice shot! Agree w/ the landscape orientation, gives the feel of the expanse of a pasture...

    This composition is just splendid:) The crop works for me because this image is about the goats. The only thing I would nit pick is if you had a 'hair' more room on top, just so the rocks aren't quite so crowded into the frame. A minor detail though in a very nice image.

    Heh, I know what you mean about the legs, took me a couple of looks and I still haven't decided. As for the crop, I played around with a couple of different ones, and settled on the square, but here's the original uncropped version for you.

    Thanks for the comments!

    This does all look very Scottish to me.
    And hey, I prefer the uncropped version. More room for the sheep and the viewers' eyes to wander ;)
