Buffalo Bull Fight

By mjparmy
First of all I would like to apologise to those members that took the trouble to leave critique on a previous underexposed buffalo shot. I decided to delete it from my gallery not realising that I also deleted it from the critique gallery. Thanks to you all for the mods and advice and, in future I will make sure I don't make the same mistake.

Today it's another buffalo shot converted to mono. It seems that this is the only way to get something remotely acceptable from this badly exposed image.

Well if that is underexposed then keep underexposing! Great image and tremendous background - hence the award. The B/W is so right for this.

Take care

This has worked out very well! But beware of guides advising extreme minus EV settings... Wink (Not quite so extreme in this one.)

That's worked out really well, Mick!

I'm wondering about a slight crop on one side or other: but part of me says that this should have a regal, central placement, like two heavyweight boxers in a spotlit ring.

I cetainly wouldn't say that this was "remotely acceptable", far from it.
