    2 pics of sheep(s)!! taken in oldham on sunday - nice n cold n snowy

    dont know how obvious/flawed it is in the 1st pic but, i duplicated the layer, rubbed out the sheep and then added a blurring effect to the background to increase the focal point of this fine animal! - we love our sheep here in oldham, uk!!

    haha.

    Good stuff.

    I like the first picture. Looks good with what you did to it. The "sheep" staring at you would set me off running though!

    We shoot mountain sheep/goats here, and I have a uneasy feeling as we get close to them. Those horns are HUGE and they are a big ball of muscle and easily out run us up or down the hill.

    Love the second shot! My border collie would love to be out in that field rounding up the sheep. :)

    Both are good, but I really like the back-lighting on the first.

    The only thing distracting are the towers in the far distance.

    Think the blurring on them is nice. They both look nice to me! Second one get a nice feeling of being "watched." Keep it up!

    Sheep they are!
    And good photos of them.
    Both a tad too centred for my liking, but hey, that is just my liking. Your blurring-the-background-job looks well done! I much like it. Must learn how to do that myself, too, I think! Being a real fan of backlighting makes me like the first photo quite much, too, though I also like the fact that the golden colour of sheep eyes shows so nicely in the second.
