[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I could not resist a picture of this cow, as we walked on the Brown Clee hills near to my home in South Shropshire. No manipulation required except for a slight crop.

Bom dia Ken,
Look undecipherable, but an excellent shot.
Very good dacabeša placement slightly off center cow.
Pretty one.

I would have to disagree about no manipulation needed, Ken.
The shot is simply over-exposed.
Burnt out sky, almost burnt out fence along the bottom, harsh loss of colour across the flank of the cow.

Why f5 @ 1/320 with an ISO of 200?
Camera set to semi auto with spot metering selected has tricked the meter reading into thinking the subject is darker than it really is.

Shooting into the bright sky and reflected light from the shiny cow neck, you need to compensate.
Keeping the same stop and ISO, but adding a negative exposure compensation would've reduced the amount of light which would not only prevent the whites blowing out but also given you a little richer colour saturation on the subject
