Could possibly be lightened just a touch, but that's purely a personal feeling, you'll know better what the lighting on the day was.
Dennis - I don't think this is the forum to "play with" other people's images, (she says just before she posts his image that she has "played with"), but I wanted to see what a Shadows/Highlights correction would do -- what do you think, and Gary - what do you think? I will delete this post if you wish, Dennis - just thought this was the easiest way to show it, and I love the heightened colors. (We may all have differently calibrated monitors also, of course.)

I thought I was a gonner.

Three of us had left our cars with the intention of taking pictures of this big bull and his harem in the open field at the side of the road. While walking to the best shooting spot, traffic began to stop on both sides of the road and people were turning off their engines. Just as I reached the first car, the cows began crossing the fence and heading into the road right in front of me. After the harem was safely across, this big bull stepped from the trees and crossed as well. He stopped, lowered his head (with the threatening horns) and stepped toward us. I thought I was a gonner with no place to hide or run. Thankfully, he decided we weren't a threat; and he turned and bounded into the trees. It was an amazing site. I'm afraid I was too excited to hold very still for tack sharp pictures. I do, however, have evidence of my story right here. Enjoy.

Janet

Sorry to be so late getting back on this one CJ, things have been a bit hectic and times been a little in short supply.

Nice job on brightening it up, a little too much for my taste, but as you say we're all using different monitors, and the chance of them all being calibrated identically is not good.

I took your version, overlayed it on Dennis's original, and dropped layer opacity to 67%, which gave me the kind of look I was seeking (at least it does on my screen).

Janet, great shots.

Why is it I never have a camera with me whenever I see anything interesting.

I was walking the dogs yesterday, and a couple of Roe Deer jumped the hedgerow in front of me, seeing the dogs they immediately took off and cleared the barbed wire fence into the woods on the other side of the track. Whole episode lasted just a few seconds.

Unlike you I have no pictures to recall the incident, just a memory that will last with me for some time.

Re: Photographed (or Processed) TODAY

Hello everyone! Long time no see, I've been on hiatus for a little while. I personally enjoy the original version of Dennis' photograph. I think the range of contrast adds more depth to the photograph. I think that by lightening it up too much, we lose the realism in the photo. Of course, this is my personal opinion, but I would leaf (pun) it the way it was shot. The nice diagonal line created by the light in the red trees draws my eye to the crossroads in the lower third of the picture. I think by lightening the picture, we lose that draw. Very nice shot Dennis!

Re: Photographed (or Processed) TODAY

This is a picture that I took on the set of a short film that I am co-producing. The young lady in the photograph is our Assistant Director. Believe it or not, there is no after processing in this photo (except for some minor cropping). She is a naturally beautiful girl, so processing was not required.

Re: Photographed (or Processed) TODAY

Really nice picture Nickolas. Quite mysterious and thought provoking.

Philbach. I like the mood of your picture. I'll bet it would make a great painting too.
