well, i hada little time to shoot today, and luckily the memory card worked this time.. here is the first 2 images i processed.. i thought these were similar enough to put in the same thread.. i really like the late evening sun adding warmth to these shots!!

comments and critiques are encouraged and welcome!!

Nice pictures... I like #2 because the animal his it's head up a tad more...
Good bokeh and it's a good thing because the background is so similar in color. Nature's way of making it difficult for photographers.

I knew you were out there in the woods someplace but.... YAKS ! ! !

of course, i have to be different- i prefer the first one. i like the trees reaching into the corner and that slight downward shift in the yak's head i find fits better aesthetically....a matter of taste i guess ;) nice though.

These are really some great pictures of an interesting animal.

One thing to note is that when you view the pictures together. you can note a difference in the color of the hair do to different levels of processing between the two photos

yea.. the originals are different as well.. there were some clouds and the 2nd one the sun had slipped behind leaving it a little flatter in the original..
