A bunch of sheep grazing the lush grass in a field near Launceston. I drove past this field a few times as I tried to find my way to Tintagel. On my final drive by remembering the position of the field I parked up and incredibly took some shots of the grazers without even one of them even looking up... oh wait, oh well!
Anyway I finally found my way to my destination, and it was very nice, worth the trek.
I worked very hard to get them all too look up, my Baahhing really has improved I think you will agree.

Très belle lumière et jolies couleurs avec en plus un mouton à deux têtes au premier plan (enfin c'est l'impression que l'on a...)

Here is my critique to take you to the 1001 mark! Good job james with your photography you have turned into a good Trek photographer.
Great shot also mate, they look like little people in sheep outfits.

Hi James, this is one of the nicest 'sheep' shots that I've seen on TE.
Your composition is spot-on,I love the way they are looking at you.Just a pity about the sheep's nose that is just appearing behind the head of the sheep on the left.
The blue sky and green green grass are a perfect backdrop.
TFS, best wishes Jean.

very ncie shot here, I like the sheep staring at you like a stranger, but all sheep tend to do that to everyone, well taken

Well done! You've managed to capture their attention very nicely - all of the are looking at you. Composition is really nice and balanced, good colours and nice sky. Only minor thing that could be easily corrected with clone tool - two dust spots in the sky :)

An incredibly good POV makes this simple picture a real winner. One of the best sheep pics I've seen. Good colour and pin sharp wooly detail. Nice one. Thankss.

For me the low pov and attention of the sheeps is what makes this one. The animals profiled on the hilltop and the clouded sky makes for a good total. Their interest in the fotog further adds to a little special result. Good one james.
