Fun at the Farm

By tigertimb
A light hearted shot for the end of the week Smile

Camera poked through the bars, wide angle and relying on the autofocus as the animal came to investigate.
#1 is probably the only one even approaching quality, with the very long donkey, but I thought the others were fun too.
#3 is the closest I've come to losing my camera as I only just manouvred it back through the bars in time Tongue

Thankyou for all the comments on the foxes, any comments welcome


P.S. You may need to click on the variant numbers instead of just hovering over them

(How did you manage to get your variants up, I'm still waiting!)

Absolutely excellent set. My favourite is the donkey. Is that 2, or is the angle so extreme that that's his back end all the way over there?

I think V2 would have been better if you'd focused on the front horse.

It's nice to see something other than a chocolate labrador given the close-up treatment.

These are excellent Tim. I think the donkey is my favourite as well. (on variants...yours is the only one I've seen so far that works....have you been creeping to Pete?? LOL Wink)

Thankyou everyone.
Davey I agree entirely, camera was at arms length inside the enclosure though and I was relying on the autofocus - I did say that #1 was the only remotely good one of the three Tongue

Hmmm the variants: I did edit the main text after uploading them which might have been the key as that's when they appeared; someone else will need to confirm this though and I guess we won't have that long to wait for it all to be working anyway Smile

V1 and V3 in particular are fun, and creative - and those are qualities in their own right. I've tried this and never got anything I was satisfied with. I've also had my lens licked a few more times than I care for...

Three fun farmyard images Tim, why the long face in v1, is he a swindon town fan?

A brilliant set, Tim, especially V1! It's confusing that hovering your mouse over V3 shows the same image as V1 - unless you know and actually click on the version number, it could be easy to miss seeing the correct image. Think I'm abandoning the idea of variants until they get this sorted out Sad

I am only seeing V 1, Tim, bit what a fone shot it is: close up with the wide angle of course has exaggerated the perspective in an interesting way. Lovely shot.

Has to be V1, which is so cute and highly amusing with the 'very long donkey' illusion!

Great set of shots Tim - love V3

Always a fun way to use a wide-angle lens. It works well with cats, too -- from the right angle, you can make a fully-grown cat look like a kitten again. Smile
