[B] The real deal [/B]
A few days back I showed off my little boy, Sebastian, who fancies himself to be a bull, but here is the real deal.
This is a new addition to the area. He's not ours but our neighbours, who has kindly offered his services. Well I liked the look for him from the safety of the car - as we pass through his paddock to get to our place, but thought a personal encounter would best betray his temperament..and determine if he was the right match for my girls (I am a bit of an over-protective father). Suffice it to say, that he's a real bull and certainly put me in my place straight from the get go...and I was lucky to get this frame...as the rest were quite blurry due to my hasty retreat :blush: He's only small for a Murray Grey bull - being specifically breed as a "Square Metre" - a downsized bull to ensure smaller calves are thrown by new mothers. But, man, he's pretty intimidating when he puts his mind to it! Here he turned just to show me that his hump is huge and he's not to be trifled with.
Well I actually was going to post a straight landscape from yesterday, but after hearing Ray Sach's podcast about preferring to have something animated included a composition, I thought I'd see if there was something in what they all agreed.
Finally, I've been quite inspired by Seeain's (woof's) Yale series and so tried to emulate his subtle tone mapping. Hope it worked....and that Seeain understands that imitation is the highest form of flattery.
