A Curious Young Bull

Posted by
Anita (West Nottingham, Pennsylvania, United States) on 3 March 2008 in Animal & Insect.

Curious and friendly, he and 5 or so of his companions came to see what I was doing. My dog thought this crew rather large and wanted to go to the other side of the road.
Based on the helpful critique by Suze, I burned the fence line as it crosses the bull's face.

THANK YOU FOR VISITING! I WELCOME CONSTRUCTIVE CRITIQUES.

Very cool shot! I think I'd like either more of the fence showing or to "photoshop" out the electric fence line that runs across his face.

@Suze: Thanks for your suggestion. I may try photoshopping it out.

I just tried cloning out the fence, and I am too impatient to do it, especially around the ears where there are hairs. I will try, instead, to take better photos in the future. :-)

OK. I made a different change--I burned the fence line running across his face, which makes it stand out less. I think that improves the image.
Thank you so much for critiquing my photo and, thus, helping make it stronger. :-)

Aww that's cute! I like the way he's peeking through the fence... He looks so cheeky!

great image - the strong diagonal lines from the fence are great, and the expression on the bull's face is priceless (kind of like "what are you doing, strange human?"). Well taken shot.

Great lines and composition, Anita. And that expression is priceless.

Interesting that he wasn't intimidated by the dog. Curious (or hungry?) animals can make helpful subjects.
