Is she imagining eating all those dandelions?

congrats to your first idea to get the goat out of the center, good choice. the perspective you chose is standard "looking down" on your subject. This is what people see all the time. One of the challenges for photographers is to show common subjects in different views. You could have done down to the level os the head of the goat, or even lower and take a picture from the ground up. 2 more comments: you cut off the legs and the tail. I know it is tough in all the excitement to forget about these little things. But it makes the animal look arkward and incomplete. The last comment is about the big open space on the right side of your picture. If you move your subject away from the center, what do you do with all this empty space? an other tough choice to make. Very often you can pick something out of the environment of your subject, your model, tha animal. So showing the grass is not a bad idea, it's the yellow colored dots that is drawing the eyes of the viewer away from your main subject. So filling up this empty space is very challenging. You could use bushes, fences, the back of an other animal, to create lines that lead directly to your model. I hope you did not get too tired reading this long comment. Good Luck.

Your title made me laugh. Never thought about goats (or any other animal) having an imagination, don't see why not though. As for your image, I wish the goat were a bit more to the right (not dead center though). He looks like he's a step away from walking out of your photo. I do like the contrast of the green grass & dandelions.

Has a snap-shotty feel for me. Would like to have more light on the goats face since he/she/it is the subject of the image.
