[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I was out walking the country lanes of Devon and stopped at the view over a gate to a framers field. These young bulls all took an interest in me and came to check me out. I was shooting into the sun so it was a little tricky getting the exposure right.

This were manual mode becomes handy. You dis a Nice job exposure Wise on This one. Great shot.

Hi Bob,
You have created an almost surreal animated type of effect. The inquisitiveness of the cattle as they stare at you has given a interesting and funny side to your well timed image. Beautiful healthy cattle and lusheous looking fields.

Really beautiful picture. The greenery, the clouds and the posing bulls, its awesome.

Hello Robert,looking at your shot I get the feeling that the cows are still moving towards you!
A healthy looking herd indeed.
A bucolic scene.
Good depth of field.
Regards Jean.

Bom dia Robert,
Is it just curiosity or they want to experience its hormones giving some bucks on you?
You're a master photographer who always does well even the opposing difficulties by weather conditions of the day.


Yes, they looking at you, the bulls are not my cup of tea, they are curious to observe a potential adversary, they have not the innocent curiosity of cows.
I do not know why but it makes me think of HDR.
Interesting result into the sun.

A serendipidous shot and you were shooting into the light. The shot therefore looks a little un-natural but a good shot despite that and a good format to show the long line of cows.

Ciao BobSmith!

Dangerous cows.
Fine scenery.
Nice colors.
Good light and bright.
Very good sharp.
Original image.


Another perfect shot. I just think you know your stuff.
