I like this shot. I find the composition an interesting one. The front quarter of the car leads my eye forward, down the road, to the crossing sheep. If there is anything I would criticize it would be the sign on the left. I would clone it out. Otherwise an outstanding shot. BTW, I too just purchased the Sigma 10-20mm and I am loving it.

All the best,
Steve

I rather like the way it mirrors the fencepost on the right.Two pieces of Good Old English decrepitude (like me).

your both right LOL, it would be ok cloned out and it does mirror the fence post nicely........just pot luck as to the shot u get when your holding camera out with one hand trying to hold it level and still somehow managing to press the shutter.

i look the wall mirrored in the car as well

one more thing smac the sheep wasnt crossing the road......it eating....you have to slow down and drive round them......they dont like to move.........all that grass and they have to eat the side of the road

Ah, to each his own. I think it's a lovely shot either way.
