This was taken on one of my regular trips to 'Barnards Farm', with a charity I belong to. It's a huge and great space to explore, with many large sculptures around the grounds.


This is one of the ones that I took of a life size bull sculpture, which also looks good in colour.


It was taken on a mostly sunny day, but you may notice a few spots in the sky area, which were small droplets of rain that fell on my camera lens. I have decided to leave them rather than clone them out in PS, as I think it says more about the day.


Taken on a kit 28 - 80 lens, on my favourite 35mm camera, the Pentax MZ5N, which is just a great camera to use.


The film was then developed in a home mixed, tea spoon formula of D76 / ID11, which gave good negs to print.

I meant to say, that I laid down on the grass for this shot, to put the flowers and foliage at the front. I wanted to make it seem that the bull was alive and that I was sneaking up on it to take it's picture.

Your idea works very well with this angle. I like it this way very much.
Before reading the title and on very first quick sight, I thought that you photographed your Billingham bag. :-)

I like your treatment of this subject, Terry. The low viewpoint and darkened sky are great.

For me, the mid-tones can make or break a print and this is why I really like the foreground. The flowers not only add interest and help frame the subject but more importantly give greater tonal balance to the photo.

Thanks for all the comments peoples.


And PanFrank, re-looking at the picture above again quickly, I see what you mean about the bag element. LOL Smile
