The Young GOAT

Hi everybody,this is my 1st photo on TrekLens Gallery
I hope You like my picture ;-)

The goat (Capra aegagrus hircus) is a domesticated subspecies of the wild goat of southwest Asia and eastern Europe. the goat is a member of the bovine family, and is closely related to the sheep, both being in the goat antelope group.

Domestic goats are one of the oldest domesticated species. For thousands of years, goats have been utilized for their milk, meat, hair, and skins all over the world. In the last century they have also gained some popularity as pets.

Female goats are referred to as does or nannies, intact males as bucks or billies; their offspring are kids. Castrated males are wethers. Goat meat is sometimes called chevon.

Hello Piotr,
This is a great portrait of a cute goat!
Narrow DOF works very well here, giving superb details in the face of your furry friend...
Funny expression well captured, all presented in a pleasant composition!

Hello Piotr,

it is a beautiful portrait of this goat.
she reminds me a post that I did, of 3 goats that spy us to speak a lot of the neighborhood. Funny expression they have. Beautiful close here!


* see here:
Attentive Trio

Very cute goat, she or he is very sweet nice job very sharp.


Hi Piotr,

A very nice catch of a jolly goat. :) I think this is a good photo because you got some colour in the goat's eyes, which is rare... in most photos they're always just black. The soft green background really contrasts well with the goat, due to the difference in colour and focus. In general this just looks nice, and the model (the goat) looks very friendly, and soft. :)

Well done! This was/is a very good first post.


What a great first photo. Impressive clarity and detail. I like the soft focus bg, really makes this little guy stand out. You did so well with your focus I am jealous.

Hello Piotr and welcome to Treklens. Superb portrait of this young goat who is almost smiling into the camera! I like your DOF which isolates him/her beautifully. Well done! Regards, Pat.

splendide prise , beaux détails et splendide netteté
bravo et merci


Witaj!sliczny koziolek! super ujecie!fantastyczna ostrosc!
Pozdrawiam Aga:)

Hello Piotr, welcome to Tl and a great first image. This goat is very cute. Good blured bg and the details so sharp! The white balance is well done.

I like how you captured the close-up of the goat framed by the fence.

Great work! Yan.

ps: Many thx for your review in "Glam Smile". I am very happy that you like it! :)

Hello Piotr
I love this cute portrait of your little white goat. I love how his head is cocked to one side giving you the look. His white fur, pink skin and large doe eyes are very appealing. Excellent detail and sharpness.

What a lovely portrait of this young goat!! Her pose is super!! One of the sweetest I've ever seen! :)

Hi Piotr,
This is an excellent portrait and I really like the expression you have caught, very sharp image with nice natural colours, I find the background distracting for the Young Goat but otherwise very good.

Oh, what a sweetie! You captured the personality of this charming goat. The composition and POV help us engage ourselves in this scene.

Nostalgia moment: I once had three female goats of three different breeds. Each one had a very different personality and attitude:) They had kids, too, of course, and they all loved to romp in the field and jump upon boulders or tree stumps...as entertaining as a circus. Best of all, their milk made the smoooooooothest fudge:)

Sharp, clear, well composed portrait of the goat. I could see the expressions in his eyes. Well done. :) Vandana


A stunning portrait, such amazing detail and the use of natural framing is superb.
Good exposure and composition.
Thanks for posting.

Funny shot! Well taken, very good quality photo (focus, contrast, coloring)...

This cute "little thing" looks so attractive because of the hint of a smile!
Judicious use of selective focus for ease of visual concentration on its eyes.
