Very, very good. I like the way you got down low and looked it in the eye-socket. It occupies the frame.
Long time since I had a decent skull as a prop, farmers seem to have got more conscientious about clearing dead animals. Which is probably as well...

An excellent mono study, Den. I can't really imagine it in colour! The conversion is very good indeed.
Not easy to improve on the image in discovery mode, i.e. when you were presumably lying on your front squinting through the viewfinder. I like the dof but think in the circumstances f8 would have added some vital textural detail on the horn without including significantly more background. Since the object is now in your possession you can work on it at your leisure: it would make a great centrepiece for a memento mori.

That sheep wouldn't vroom if you put 40,000 volts through it!! I'm looking forward to where this skull is going to appear next, Den Smile

A fantastic observational study, very well composed and crafted, the monochrome adding to the appeal

Love your narrative. Great find, and I suspect it had a little help to jump into your vanWink.
Now I am seeing a dark and moody still life with a lit candle, cobwebs, an old book, a lot of dust......and "Wooly's" skull!
