Challenge: Animals In Black And White (Advanced Editing VII)
Camera: Canon EOS-5D Mark II
Lens: Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM
Location: Rocky Mountains, Montana
Date: Feb 17, 2012
Aperture: 6.3
ISO: 200
Shutter: 640
Date Uploaded: Feb 19, 2012

Used a 1.4 extender on my 70-200 but I would estimate the sheep was only @30 yards. I think the long focal length gives it a nice compression though. By the way those are burrs on his fur not ticks. Created a layer to brighten up the eye area, another to darken the background and one more for some of the fur & horns.

Seems a little soft / out-of-focus

The snow on the back/head is wonderful.

Collecting just a bit of snow on him. Nice detail; I might smooth out the background just a tad more so it doesn't compete with the sheep so much.

This is beautiful! The black and white was perfect for this shot

Very nice capture and works well with the square crop. Nicely balanced by the grasses on the right, too. Title needs work. :-)

Oh! Marvelous image! (Your title stinks though. *grin*)

Well done!

His eye is quite confronting.
