Challenge: Candid III (Basic Editing III)
Camera: HP PhotoSmart 620
Location: Outside Of Montgomery, Alabama
Date: Apr 10, 2006
Galleries: Candid, Animals
Date Uploaded: Apr 10, 2006

Taken on a small farm on Old 31 South coming from Montgomery, Alabama, these sheep looked like a great shot to capture. Running in circles, not knowing which way to capture these animals, I just starting shooting. The dog in the background is a award winning sheepherder in the county. He keeps these sheep in uniformed order when nesassary. I had the pleasure to watch him with these sheep in action. It was an amazing moment to see. This shot was taken when the sheep had been rounded up into this corner of the yard. It was taken with an HP 620 Photosmart camera in mid afternoon.

I'm not much for receiving or giving comments, but since Candids are
near and dear to my heart, I have decided to give comment on every entry
in this challenge.

Unfortunately, candids of animals are really not what I look for in a good candid. Animals are aware and both unaware at the same time of a photographer, nor do they care either way. Too easy, no comfort zone lost. It's a 2 for me.

nice group portrait. candid? well, i guess. this might have been more interesting if shot from their eye-level. if your score isn't where you would like it to be, you might want to read this thread.

Sorry, don't see the connection to the challenge. ??? I like the way the border collie is tucked away at the top of the image.
