taken a few miles out of town

Thought this would be appropriate for this challenge. My first buffalo shot I submitted back in Sept. 22, 2002 ' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/0-999/34/120/6278.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/0-999/34/120/6278.jpg', '/') + 1) . ' did pretty good but I seen a lot of changes that I could have made so I went out and made those changes. I am pretty happy with the growth that I have made and how I challenged myself through many different obstacles and have succeed to become a portrait and landscape photographer and selling many of both. I never would have thought that ten years ago I would be doing what I am now.
I do owe some thanks to you all on here for the comments, support and friendship. I hope to make more friends and continue to enter challenges for a long time to come.

I'd say this is much better than your 2002 version! Very classic Western photograph.

What a perfect scene that looks straight out of the American West.

Nice capture and thirds. Not a big fan of the top of the subject being right at the same level of the horizon. If possible, I would have tried to get low and shoot up or raise the angle to see some land above his back. Still a nice result. Good Luck. 6.

Great shot! I love seeing buffalo. They're such majestic animals. Good composition and lighting. I like how the curve of his back mimics the curves of the hills in the background. Good luck in the challenge. 10

Great shot, love the angle, and the composition. I happen to love the border, as I just had the same type in a recent challenge. So if anyones says they don't like, don't believe them. :P

Positively iconic. Would like the angle to be a little higher or lower so his/her back wasn't level with the top of the hills in the background, but nice job overall.

Textbook! Lovely capture of this creature - nice job with the pastels of the weeds and ground without overdoing it.

Wow excellent shot. The coloring is prefect.

Absolutely stunning! I love the framing of the buffalo, the almost muted color in the sky is a great contrast to the darkness of the animal's head. Exposure spot-on IMO, well done indeed- going in my favourites!
