Alpine Cattle

By crookymonsta
I really loved the cows in Slovenia, beautiful creatures, although I was none too keen on having to go into the pasture with them to get any pics. They are absolutely enormous, I don't even come up to their shoulders, and had calves too, so had to be very careful.

Two compositions from the same shot, I just can't make my mind up between them.

Sincere thanks to Dave (WhiteSwan1) and Pamela (pamelajean) for their very kind User Awards yesterday, totally unexpected.

I like them both for different reasons, Sandra, but am finding myself favouring V2 for the wider view, vertical format, seeing the whole of the foreground cow, and that beautiful sky.

Two stunningly beautiful captures of these ever so beautiful domesticated creatures. The get up close and personal image grabs my vote for today.

Lovely pair of images, Sandra - I can't make up my mind either. If I'm being picky, I'd be tempted to clone out the ear tagSmile

Hmmm...very tough fight 'cos both are wonderful shots with that light, colour and depth, Sandra.

For me, V1 is about the cows, especially the forecow. V2 is about the cows and their environment. So if you want a cow shot, V1. If you want a cow + landscape shot, V2.

Kudos on both, though Smile
