Re: Toro

I like it as is, but you might consider moving white point in Curves or layers a little to brighten the highlights more. Hopefully the banding in the sky (which will be made worse by lightening) will not be apparent on your full size image I do not think anything wrong with the composition however try flipping the image horizontally and see what you think - sometimes images can benefit by leading the eye into the image from left to right and light to dark. Of course not exactly technically correct but if you like it only you and I will know

Re: Toro

El Toro looks like a cardboard or wooden cut-out placed into the picture after the fact. There appears to be string or wire coming off each horn, a very poor compositing of his front feet, the frame on his hind legs is showing, he has an unnaturally flat back and his other parts do not look realistic.

Re: Toro

I think El Toro is possibly a cardboard cut out as I have seen similar on the road side pretty large size in Spain - I think advertising either bull fighting or even breeding

Re: Toro

Well the Toro does look like a cutout. I cropped the photo differently

Re: Toro

Thank You, to everybody, you`re right the toro was in the past an advertising of a drink, so he is really a cardboard cut out.
