Stand-offish sheep. I'm imagining speech bubbles, and they are mainly rude...

I don't think these sheep appreciate the rim-lighting, Malc, nor the sheer quality of your composition and b&w treatment. Perhaps they are trying to tell you that you are not showing their good side.

agree with Oliver, you captured great light across the contours of the sheep.
the processing completes the composition.

Does this fleece make my bum look big?

The ideal title, Malc'.
I wouldn't be interested in photographing sheep either. Wink

Have you actually captured the black sheep of the family and they were never going to be cooperative?

Sheep are usually quite cooperative and look at the camera, but this lot seem rather miserable!! 😳 Still a great capture though, Malc, love the backlighting 👍😃

They were just being a little sheepish Blush.
Nicely did. Smile

Looking at those three, I detect a note of sneering contempt. Were you by any chance wearing garments fashioned from synthetic materials?

Shaun the sheep’s version of Katherine Tait and ‘Am i bovvered?’ The lighting here is perfect.

Wonderful "contra-jour" lighting on the sheep. Right up my street (or field).

If you took a picture of the back of my head this is what you'd get. We all need a clipping. Love the lighting in this Malc. They are taking turns watching for the big bad wolf.

Beautiful lighting and composition, Malc, overshadows completely the sheep's indifference to photographers.

That works.

And - amazingly - nobody's yet split the difference on 'disinterested' and 'uninterested' - these sheep are thoroughly impartial, and will take notice if it is merited...

Hmmm...I see now that perhaps 'uninterested' was more what I had in mind when describing their demeanour...

I reckon they're all prepared to sit in judgment on you and me, Malc. Dispassionately, without fear or favour...
10 May 2021 9:14PM
That nice Mr Dudler got in before me. Bah, bah ....... humbug.
Still, no point bleating about it.
(I'm 93 for goodness sake - what do you expect?)
I've been clearing out the loft and found this old tiddlywinks trophy. I hope you will treasure it as much as I haven't.

You're not using the correct language or offering any inducements - sheep just don't drop their fleeces for anyone, you know. Wink

If Androids dreamt of electric sheep they would probably look like this...

Certainly scary enough, the dark side of mutton...

I like it really, honest! Wink
