The ISO was a mistake. The picture was too dark.

Greetings from the Critique Club!

First impression: Oh this looks like a posty...and I was right :-)

Artistic: I like the soft (zoom?)blur here, as noted sheep have a strange quality about them and it has been caught well here. Would have liked to see the left sheep's butt in the frame.

Technical: A tad underexposed, but goes well with the feel here. Would like to see that chunk of wire cloned out right below the eye. Composition ok, I assume you were probably standing on a roadside and having to shoot a bit level/downwards. A lower pov and shooting up may have added more interst.

Overall: A nice spookyish image, more of the sheep than the bush, which has kinda got a little lost in the shuffle here.

Feel free to PM me with any questions.

Beautiful mood and tones. Exquisite light. I only wish the wire didn't cross under the eye.

Funny I took a similar one a few days ago but in the woods, sheep have a mysterious quality and you caught that perfectly.
