This is one of the first photos I have taken with my new camera. While the lines are distracting I was fortunate enough to find a title with which they actually work.

I like the sharpness and the contrast; it is quite a difference with my old A40.

I used my EF 50mm F/1.8 for this photo.

Your Highness,

Congratulations on finding the appropriate book title for your entry!

It seems, though, that the excitement related to your new purchase has led you to show some uncustomary haste I your creation process.
At first glance, I see two “classic flaws” and an incongruity you could have avoided easily by:
1°) leveling your horizon (slanted horizons will invariably give a snapshot feel to a picture)
2°) placing you main subject in a more harmonious manner (this is debatable and certainly not an absolute rule but main subjects placed dead center in an open environment rarely enhance a composition.)
3°) moving one step ahead to by-pass the blurry grass patch hiding the cow’s reflexion in the foreground.

I think you will probably agree with me that this is not your most accomplished or well thought of shot and lets keep it at that.

Good luck with your new camera

LOL too cute! Never heard of the book but it got a chuckle out of me.

I'd say ground beef... I would guess could have had more impact if it wasn't centrally placed.

I don't know the book but the image fits the title well, the focus is a little soft for my taste
