... since my gazelle-thread was not very popular, I will try something more simple now
Brilliant shot! Love how the background is blurred out just nicely - not too much. Excellent how the sheep is looking at the camera.
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.
I will not engage in any of the one-liners flying madly through my brain
I ban Antartican for baaaaaaad thoughts. Cute sheep, although the background bugs me a bit.
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 like this one Very sharp and nicely composed.
I am feeling suitably sheepish.
(Oh c'mon, ewe had to know that would be my comeback)
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?
Sheep are so cute. :mrgreen: Great shot, I love the bokeh!
