    Brilliant shot! Love how the background is blurred out just nicely - not too much. Excellent how the sheep is looking at the camera.

    Top marks!

    Thanks :)

    And good to hear that from a Scotsman ... after all you are experts at sheep ;)

    (this is sheep from the west country though.)

    Good shot there. Nice n sharp on the sheep and immediate area, nicely blurred background.

    bug as in not blurred enough, DOF not shallow enough? or simply the fact of having very identifiable objects there which are not in focus though?

    I am feeling suitably sheepish.

    I like the capture and DOF, but I agree that the background does bug me a bit. The DOF is right on, it's just the background that doesn't help. Trees to sky and back to trees, no matter how blurred the background is, it still takes a bit of the attention from the foreground. Maybe a tighter crop would work, sheep on the right taking most of the height of the frame? That would still leave a less distracting green background with a few sheep out of focus and of course the fence.

    On the other hand I like the in focus (grass?) and the rock on the right, just cropping the top a bit may work too.

    Every time I look at it, I have to take off my glasses, clean them, rub my eyes, and try to focus. What if you darkened the background a bit?
