Gallery - Beauty

Tara over at Sticky Fingers has come up with a great idea (great because it's photography related.. yay!!)

Tara gives a theme for the photograph and we post a photograph showing that theme and a bit about it.

So, the theme is beauty. I could have gone for any of the shots of my lovely daughters, or flowers or something like that, but I've chosen an obscure one to show beauty because basically, beauty is in the eye of the beholder and this photograph is so ugly it's beautiful in my mind. Actually, the textures that I think I've managed to capture are beautiful and so rich, that's why I'm chosing it for my Beauty themed photograph. It's one of my all time favourite photographs that I've ever taken.

  10. I love it, yes the textures are amazing. I love Highland cattle anyway ( think it is one?) I think they are so beautiful but your photo is amazing.

  11. Snap, I was totally thinking along similar lines. I'm glad I didn't post my picture of a Highland Cow though, I think this one has the edge on him! Just curious - did you do a little extra postprocessing to bring out the texture and sharpness? It looks almost hdr, but in a natural way. Love it!

  14. This is one of my favourite photos from the ones I have seen this week, possibly ever. He's so majestic and yet there is vulnerability in his eyes, and you're right about the textures that you have captured. It is indeed true that a picture speaks a thousand words.

  20. wow thanks everyone for your lovely comments :) You made my day!

    I love highland cattle but it seems that I'm not alone in that.

    Bizarely, I have a print of this shot up in my living room. I wonder how many people have got a photo of a wooly coo on the wall of their living room LOL.

    Catherine, just normal processing on this one, no HDR (although I am a sucker for HDR)

    Thanks again everyone
