I like the lighting and the blurred trees in the background. Maybe next time you could move so that Candy’s face doesn’t have things in front of it. 🙂 Just a thought. 😉July 25, 2018 at 6:26 pm #32385Sarah LewisParticipant
Um… the aforementioned comment is me! 🙁 🙂July 25, 2018 at 8:36 pm #32396Lydia BennettParticipant
I agree with @SarahAnne, retake it, being a bit more intentional in the shot, and you have a very nice photo!
Besides trying to avoid having things in front of her face, perhaps try to position yourself so there’s just a bit more space between her and the trees. It feels very slightly crowded near her head… just my opinion ☺July 25, 2018 at 11:06 pm #32403
That’s a beautiful cow! Is she a Jersey? I would use a quicker shutter speed, say, 1/300 to darken up some of the highlights and keep the photo sharp. Also, the grass seed heads are quite distracting, but they shouldn’t be too hard to remove if you have Lightroom or another good editing program. The flowers in the foreground make this really nice. Good job!July 26, 2018 at 3:52 pm #32414
@rmadaris No, she is not a Jersey, She is a Dexter which are kinda like jerseys only smaller and they are triple purpose (milk, meat, and draft). Dexters are really hardy and easy to keep so that’s why we went with this breed. Any way kinda got off topic there 🙂 … I will try and remove the grass in PS elements, and I will try a faster shutter speed as well!
Thanks everyone!July 26, 2018 at 4:57 pm #32419
@elianafranzenburg, ok, great! We’re looking into getting a Dexter if and when we get a cow.July 26, 2018 at 7:24 pm #32420
@rmadaris Cool! I highly recommend getting a Dexter, especially if it is the first cow you get.July 26, 2018 at 9:53 pm #32427

Beautiful image. Love the golden light! Haha for taking this by accident. The framing is really great. If I was taking this photo, I would try and get just a little bit lower, more to the cows eye level, also the sunlight/sky is blown out, but other than that, I love everything about this photo.August 1, 2018 at 3:17 pm #32666James StaddonKeymaster
What a beautiful time of day for taking pictures! Backlighting is difficult, but I’d say you nailed the exposure and it’s fine that the background is blown out. It’s really nice that you have some stuff blurred out in both the foreground and background. How do you think you’ll be able to make sure the subject isn’t blurry next time?
