She must have to turn her head sideways to get through a barn door. Good shot.

Lovely composition and I like the long grasses into which the cow blends.
Maybe you could pull back some detail on the upper body?
Very appealing Ed.

Great capture, I used to see plenty of this particular breed when I lived in America, but I've never seen them over here Ed.

At 500mm, you were keeping your distance, Ed
I thought a man of your calibre would have hopped over the fence
and taken a nicely detailed image with your Canon 50mm f1.8... Wink

Razor sharp capture of this very inquisitive and very interestingly patterned cow.

I coudn't get any closer old bean, there was a field between me and the cow, it was fenced off and there was no public access due to ground nesting birds being present!WinkGrin In any case I don't posess a Canon 50mm f1.8, I think it is just you and Nathan "NDODS" who own one!Smile

Many thanks for all your comments and clicks folks, they are greatly appreciated. The bottom and tail you can see actually belongs to another cow, Ed

First things first, two beautiful beasts captured here, the main character beautifully posed with a delightful expression.

I have the Canon 50mm 1:1.4. Should I be chasing cows with that one? I also have the Sigma 150-500 but can't seem to get decent shots with it. Is it me?
Nicely captured and very impressive head gear.

The 500mm has produced a nice detached background. I also don't own a 50mm, I gave it away to Vanillapenguin or the resident pagan.

still got my 1.2 55mm though and that only comes out for weddings and in the pub Smile

Lynne, my Sigma 150-500@ f/8 was softer than the old 55mm was fully open ! In short, it was useless. Sold it and never looked back, got a 200-400mm and this is heaven.
