Nice one for the theme. A good portrait of cows in panoramic format. I like the sharpness and lights althroughout the image. Well composed.

The light is gorgeous Jean and what a group ! The clarity and sharpness are outstanding even at f/4 it's focused front to back , i do not see too much of that OE on the cows' backs , not a big issue as i find the scene quite well exposed generally but if you still wish to correct the OE white on the cows' backs you ought to retouch by burning locally as i do not think that adjusting levels of the whole composition will correct that particular OE area of the photo without darkening the whole image . I like this just as is, AHHHHH we both use a Sony ,,well just noticed !
Have a nice weekend too ,
Wonderful clarity and sharpness combined with good composition.
It is so sad that the animals are not engaging with you at all. A portrait suggests interaction between photographer and subject which just doesn't quite happen.
I feel so sorry to be a little negative about such an otherwise, fine shot.
The almost panoramic presentation works well, and there is a strong sense of movement from left to right, as the cows move towards the milking parlour with the expectation of some food.
A well thought out take on the portrait theme.
There is a good sense of perspective - the gap where the gate is shows us more distant farm buildings and houses under a pale blue cloudy sky.
It's always difficult to deal with OE patches of white - personally small areas don't bother me - in any fully exposed images there are bound to be some pixels right at the 255 end of the histogram.
You ask for advice - I am by no means an expert - all I know I have gleaned from other TE/TL members over the last couple of years - so I will try a WS for you.
Thanks for your appreciation of my previous attempts!

Great place, Cornwall if you can see sights like this. I love cows and all other animals.

Interesting take on the portrait theme
I have to agree with what Bev has said though.
Thanks for joining the theme

Ah .. this picture reminds me that I have
to go to the inside of my state breathing
air of a good farm, and with pure smell of weed!
Nice shot and good definition of image.
A beautiful view the beautiful leaves our friends.

what a lovely light you have captured here and such adorable cows.If you don't mind my saying so, I think I would have cropped along the line of the shed on the left as I find the gap a little distracting. But this is such a bucolic scene that iy doesn't really matter.
