The photo says it all goats & more goats from the Northern part of Argentina - the property was fenced off & with my little camera this is as much zoom as it would give me - I am pleased with the overall image especially the lovely old wheel.
Christmas is just around the corner & I am certain many Argentines will be feasting on goat.
I saw many goat farms ready to send the herds of to be slaughtered.
The Patagonia is famous for for having lamb on the menu.
And dare I say it is delicious.
Sorry to all the vegetarians out there.
Please enjoy this photo & have a great day.

The old wheel makes it for me. Nicely placed and useful forgiving the image depth. I like the lighting ad very good detail.

Hello Dawn ,
It could be just a view of goats in a fine landscape . With the old metallic wheels in the FG , that becomes an excellent composition .

La roue à l'avant plan donne de la profondeur à la composition. La lumière forte est bien gérée et le paysage est de toute beauté.

I agree that the old spoked wheel adds much to the image. Makes one wonder what it is there for in the first place but there is a big gap between the analytical and the creative mind. So let me not be analytical and rather ask your permission to do a workshop - not to try and improve the image but simply because I think it has further potential and also for the exercise. Thank you and best wishes.

It crossed my mind just as opened the thumbernail, what the goats do with the rusty wheel they circle by sitting around?
My humor only.
Goats in diff. colors, enjoy crouch calmly on farm.

queste capre sembrano molto stanche, di solito stanno molto in movimento.
Bella scena rurale, molto naturale e semplice e, come tutte le cose semplici, piacevole.

Lep pogled na plac sa kozama ...
Dobra ostrina snimka, kontrast, lepe boje.
Dobar tekst i kompozicija, lepo pokazane koze i priroda.

A beautiful view of the land with goats ...
Good image sharpness, contrast, beautiful color.
Good content and composition, beautiful skin shown and nature.
In our country there are a lot of goats.
All the best.

All these goats lie calm to wait, when the owner brings food.
Also a lovely mountain landscape in background.
Sharpness and clarity together composition are perfect, nice done, TFS.
Have a nice day,

The scene is interesting
But it will have a bigger impact if you take a lower position to give more depht in your composition.

amazing herd of goats. Nice composition with the wheel on FG. An interesting comment in note. Good presentation from Argentina.
Have a nice WE.
mauro61 (52623) 2012-12-07 1:07
ben espresso questo luogo dalla selvaggia bellezza con il verde presente solo a tratti.
Momento di riposo per questi animali in una scena dove hai ben inserito la vecchia ruota in FG,
raszid62 (18583) 2012-12-07 3:04
It is, however, true that goats eat out of the grass to the roots. Cool the herd of goats, beautiful rocks in the background. There was once a movie director Peter Weir,,, Picnic at Hanging Rock''.
This picture reminds me of the movie. A great combination of great quality.

Hello dear Dawn,
Certainly thats a lot of goats on the field.Goat meat or Mutton is a delicacy in India too and if you happen to be in an Indian Restaurant you must eat what is called Mutton Biryani.I like your frame in this shot,rustic scene but beautiful landscape too.Very well done. TFS.
Wish you and your family - A Very Happy Christmas.
Have a great time and be friends with me.

Hi Dawn, Inclusion of the wheel in the FG was a good idea; it really adds an interesting element to the image and provides depth. I think I would have been inclined to emphasise a little more by getting closer to the wheel and adopting a lower POV (as Didi suggested). cheers, Steve
s_lush (16134) 2012-12-08 23:02
Looking at your well-composed shot, I can not tell what group of compositional elements is main one, the colorful herd of goats, the rocky and green background or maybe the wheel so aesthetically looking and very well positioned in the foreground to make the scene being simply beautiful. Great job!
danos (85757) 2012-12-09 2:53
nice the panoramic view of the resrting cabritos,in this section of the Northern part of Argentina.I like the authentic view as the presentaion of the scene.Good the light and the colour management of the image.
fds (8092) 2012-12-11 1:56
dear friend dawn i licke very much you rural picture from desolated country
great colors and very impressive location
mirosu (13340) 2012-12-13 1:14
I like your composition with the resting goats and the old rusty wheel in the front. Very good deep DOF allowing the viewer to see very clear the whole image content. The blue-white sky adds a nice hue to the scene. Well done.
eldancer1 (27141) 2012-12-16 7:50
Beautiful landscape! Nicely captured especially with the goats who appeared to be resting for the day. Great lighting and dof with sharp details. Well done, tfs.
adores (36121) 2012-12-17 15:11
Really a different and interesting scene, here! You framed it well, placing the wheel on the left and the goats around. The background is very nice also, with the clouds hiding the top of the mountains.
You managed to get a good result!
jmdias (54499) 2012-12-23 1:18
very nice framing. I liked the way you used the wheel in the foreground, the animals at center and those marvelous mountains ahead. very beautiful landscape and a compo very well done.TFS. unfortunately argentina isn't in a good moment, what it is a pity..
Nicou (120328) 2013-01-04 21:28
Avec cette roue sur le sol quelle vue et image et ces chèvres dans le décor les montagnes quelle compo.
Bravo et amitié
