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.
aw she looks so sad, like she’s saying please come pat me
Or maybe “well at least you’re dry”
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.
