While I am here

I was waiting for a train at a crossing the other day, just watching the cars roll by. I happened to look out of my right window and I saw this lovely creature watching me watch the train. It was a nice dreary rainy day with dark but soft light and I couldn’t help but to take a portrait. Cattle are a common sight in my daily travels and most times I don’t have the opportunity to snap any pics but in this case I literally had nothing else to do! And all I had to do was power down the window and shoot away.

I would have liked a little more telephoto reach for a tighter crop but other than that no complaints. And sticking with my black and white theme this month, I processed the image with Topaz Black & White this time around. I also broke down and finally purchased Lightroom 4, but for now I’m just using it as a RAW converter until I learn how everything works.

    Very nice. Also, congrats on the LR4 purchase. I have LR3 and it revolutionized my photography work flow and processing. If you need suggestions on books for LR4 just let me know.

      Thanks Nathan. It will be a bit of a learning curve so I’ll have to spend more time with it. I’ve used the trials in the past but never got around to using it much before they expired.
