|Ok, this is my first ever challenge. Not sure how well this image will be received, so anything will be a result.
This is also my first time using photoshop (CS2), so I look forward to any comments on my processing skills (or lack of!)
This shot did take a little while to get. My autofocus has gone on my one and only lens so to catch the ewe's eyes dead centre, have the ewe stay still for 1/6s while I focused then zoomed was a bit of a challenge.
I wanted to capture some of the contrast between the playful lambs and the guarded panic of the ewes, and I think the zoom effect helps the viewer feel that.
I won't bother putting up my processing steps as everyone voting will probably have a lot more experience than me!
