This picture was taken a while ago on the North York Moors not exactly sure where now, but I just found it while looking through my old snaps.
I was abit disapointed over the sky, and I should have used my polorizor!
I hope you like it, I think its composed very well.

curve background is so nice/the contrast of big and little trees behind and sky is so nice.

Hi Steven, an interesting shot of this solitary sheep. I would have expected to find it on the other side of the fence. The colour of this landscape and captured in your shot is fabulous. The composition is a good one. The shot is of the sheep, but it is also of the lone tree.

The whole image is very well balanced, and the keen interest the sheep is taking in your activities adds a lot to the effectiveness of the shot - I like the direct eye contact.
The sky is a little over-exposed but not so much that it really spoils the image. I don't think a polariser would have helped - what you really needed here was an ND grad filter to bring down the brightness of the sky, allowing you to record more detail there.
Other than, it's very well taken. Good work Steven.

Good capture of this sheep! When I was in Scotland I also noticed many curious sheep that were looking at me. But when I came too close, they always ran away, so unfortunately I was not able to take a picture like this one.
The stone wall, grass and the tree are a very good background. Well captured and thanks for sharing!
