All you need is love

By kuipje  
Taken in Gaia Zoo in Kerkrade (province of Limburg, Netherlands)
A very nice Zoo in the hilly country side. The rest of Holland is flat like a penny.
Most of the animals have space and not have to live in "cages".
All comments/advise/tips always welcome

V2 is original

Title song "All you need is love" by The Beatles ( It was first performed by the Beatles on Our World, the first live global television link 1967)
and a YouTube to the complete broadcasting of that show

A lovely moment captured. Makes me say Aww Smile

I would have preferred to take this shot from a few steps behind, such that all the four animals could have been completely inside the frame. ( there is always a chance for a crop if it doesn't work )

And i would have loved to see at least one eye to be opened Grin

Good Job

Bit tweaks in the mod Smile

Good afternoon Ishan
Thanks for your mod, indeed he needed a bit more contrast (your's is a bit too, i think personally, my wife disagree)
When one is in love they often close their eyes (for many things), don't they Wink

"Ewe" caught the moment perfectly...

I've done a mod cropping in on the essentials of the shot. I also used Levels to darken the midtones a little bit.

I look forward to MrsWOOLLYbill's comment on this one.

Apologies for the laboured jokes. I've had a busy day - and had completely forgotten a meeting I should have been at... I've had to send a grovelling email to all the people who turned up, including whoever took the notes that I should have been taking! Maybe I need to lie down for a bit.

Congratulations on getting all four heads so close together, and for capturing a precious moment.

Sheep are soft, and the moment is tender, and I therefore think your image is fine as it is. If I had done a modification it would be very much like John's, and I wouldn't want to alter the contrast for fear of losing what you have achieved.

The action is in the four heads and by cropping this way you eliminate superfluous bits like the stray legs on the left, and the netting top right.
I'm surprised that you didn't show us a crop of your own this time.

I think John needs to lie down in a darkened roomSmile.

Thanks John & Pamela
I even't think of cropping then now I thiniking maybe i should. Next time betterWink
John thank's for your mod ( a bit too dark, I think. But you know I don't like too dark)
I think I miss something about your jokes, but doesn't matter. I also like to make jokes but some like them and some times I'm the only one. CÚst la vie. But I alway presume that I or somebody else mean the right thing. And sometimes a joke in the Netherlands is funny but in Belgium they don't know what I talking about. CÚst la vie again.
If you have a good hart it will show in the end, if you know what I mean.Tongue SmileSmile
