Friends of ours recently bought a ram and some sheep for breeding.

had the neat stamp for sure .. sheep for one .. lol .. and one of your trademark tones .. you have a couple/few .. trademark tones that is ..
i loved that the sheep are all looking at you .. and actually standing still .. did you hypnotize them haha .. ;)

and its interesting how we all view things differently .. i didnt find anything odd about the angles at all .. especially as we have trees here that are leaning because of the prevailing winds .. often one will be leaning and one quite close wont be .. not sure why that is .. :)


Yes the trees if they are not staked early then itís too lateÖ A real pet hate of mine. Iíve actually pulled out trees from my garden if they end up like that, I canít stand it, the perfectionist in me LOL.


re the perfectionist in you ..
that makes two of us lol .. ;)
although for me it doesn't extend to my 'garden' ..
editing however .. that's another story .. not sure if it's a sad or happy story though .. xx

Congrats on the ribbon, Anita. Beautiful, characteristically Aussie photo, lovely tones and light. Nothing wrong with angles. Trees lean! The fence posts are straight, the sheep are upright, which shows that the camera was straight. I don't see any overall tilt to the left, but why do people assume that ground should be level? (Except when it's covered with concrete.)

This is wonderful, great job. For me when people get portraits of animals that transmit character as well as a portrait of a human that's a big win.

Some odd angles in this. Fence going to the left, trees to the right, little overall left tilt. Wide angle lens perhaps?

Why do they say sheep are stupid? Tese look very curious and mischievous. Beautiful picture!
