    I only like the first one. It would be better if you crop it closer to the circle. I think it would be a super fantastic picture

    I like #1 and #2 the most...

    I was thinking... What if you went with a tighter crop on the first one?

    Thanks to both of you for the feedback!

    And Bus_rider, I really like the tighter crop, makes it much more effective. Thank you!

    Ditto. I thought a tighter crop would work better as well. I like the edit

    I think a tighter crop on the first one too, and crop to move the shed from the center region of the photo since off centered objects often looks better.

    I almost edited a version, then saw Mark's (BuS_RiDeR), thats what I was thinking.

    Thank you to everyone! :)

    I am curious though, what is it about the other photos that you don't like. (Not that I disagree I'm just trying to get feedback on what not to do next time.)

    It's not that we don't like them just that some pic move people more than others. I think the rooster shot would look great if u did some artsy ps edit, I think the pic of the feild and barn just needed a better focal point.... Like getting more personal w the scenry....the great old fence would be something to get close to....or getting up close and personal w the barn since they both have great character.

    #2 i feel like there is no dominant object. Either get the one sheep or two and blur out the back ground a bit, or get the house.

    #3 I think you need to include the mouth too for this kind of shot

    #4 DOF too deep

    Some thoughts/suggestions, others may see some different things...

    The second one I think there is just too much competing in the image. I think simplicity here. More of the barn and maybe one or two lambs, or focus on a group of the lambs with a small portion of the fence and/or barn in the background.

    I think the cow is in a little too close, my eyes are taken down to the feet and the dirt. If you were going for the eye, then maybe some fill light, and a portrait orientation to have more of the cow in the shot, and less of the background.

    The rooster is dark, the background is very bright so I would have used flash here to bring the light level of the rooster closer to the background. That way the subject would be lit better and the background would not bee so bright (overexposed). I would probably include the feet, and also try this one in portrait orientation. Although, with feet included landscape orientation may work too, especially since the rooster is looking off to one direction (good job not sticking the rooster smack dab in the center, images are more interesting like this if you leave space to the direction the subject is looking). I would have tried both portrait and landscape orientations and decided at the scene.

    Thank you, I suppose "not like" was the wrong term, i meant more like, what can i do to make these better, which is exactly what you gave, thank you for the feedback :)
