Nice one !Never seenthis type of goat before. A suggestion - Ithink the shot could have been cropped a little more to make the goat more prominent. Also, the saturation could have been increased some more.

Hi Noserider; (some day I've got to start asking people about their names....)

A very interesting animal indeed. Good work.

I agree about cropping somewhat, though a lot depends on what youwant the fiewer to see. To me, a lot of the foreground serves no purpose other than establishing distance between the viewer and the subject. Most of us, at our luckiest would get to see such a magnificent animal from a distance like this. A good crop would bring the animal right up to us.

Regards,

Tom, on Point Pelee, Canada

cropped and saturation changed a little: Hows that? Enough? Too much?

Hi again;

I like it. Is this a local fellow? I tend to group my shots as follows:

1. I see this every day... wait until the conditions are right. (Or take lots of shots, hoping something extraordinary materializes.)

2. I'm not from around here... I've got to get the shot NOW.

If you have the opportunity to visit these guys more often, you can play with the composition and catch something special.

Good work.

Regards,

Tom, on Point Pelee, Canada

Hi Noserider,

The subject looks much prominent after cropping. Nice job ! Is this a common animal at your place?
