[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I didn't know that we had a farm in our town that has Water Buffalo! I met a guy at a coffee shop who worked on the farm so he took me there to take some photos. This particular one seemed as fascinated with me as I was with her.

I converted this into black and white using the Channel Mixer in CS6 and reducing the RED channel and increasing the GREEN channel, then adding contrast by using an Overlay Mask.

What a magnificent head, Roger!
It is an understatement to say that the greatest portraitist who has passed here at TL and have already produced some masterpieces in that branch of photography.
We were so entranced that not notice certain imperfections in BG.

Hi Roger,
Exceptional front portrait of this seemingly interested buffalo. Pinsharp on the head even showing the fine head and mouth whiskers.

Hi Roger

Great conversion to black and white. Good detail captured. She looks annoyed, or is that just me? It does look though, that there is a small white hat on her head.

Hello Roger, she is looking you in the eye just wondering what you are doing!
Excellent PP work.Her head in perfect focus, with her bulky body still very much in evidence.
Tfs, regards Jean.
