    I have revised my processing regime compared to first time round - I look forward to your comments favourable or otherwise.

    Nice image of the ewe.Like the natural setting with all the colors coming through adds greatly to the image.Composition is right on. Really nothing to pick on . Overall a great image of the ewe. TFS

    Nice one Jon, good detail, will wait until I'm back home Tuesday to take another look for any additional thoughts. Might evict the yellow flower on the trim edge at the foot of the frame and loose the grass strand following the contour of the LH horn .

    PS I would consider lowering the opacity of the sign off, it's too heavy and distracting on past/current postings.

    Good evening dear Jon,

    A well framed and processed image of this Big Horned Sheep. Good techs and I like your choice of DoF, subject stands out really nicely. BG looks great.

    The little yellow flower at the bottom of the frame a bit of an eye catcher for me too... otherwise no nits from me, happy with this as presented

    Hope you have a lovely evening, TFS !

    Warmest regards,
    Gabriela Plesea

    Very decent image Jon. I liked the subject and its grey coat. Loved those eyes.

    You have got a nice separation from the bkg and framing looks nice as well.

    A good job all around, agree on that yellow flower , would like some more space for those virtual legs.

    Nicely done, TFS !

    Thanks everyone much appreciated, I suppose I am a little awkward but I like to retain some imperfection as it were, I feel it helps retain authenticity, I find it very infrequently that a composition is totally flaw free in nature, the only thing I did was crop in this case. Unless an image has a big fault like say the rear end of another ewe in the corner I prefer to keep as close to capture and ignore slight flaws, I prefer to keep as close as possible to the "original" scene.

    The soft tones work nicely here. Framing is right on. A nice pose from the sheep as well. 1DX fancy.
