Big Horn Sheep

Uploaded: November 24, 2002

Description

I took this shot through my tinted car window with my 75-300 mm lens at about 300 mm. I used a wide aperature to get a fast shutter speed. Along with the long telephoto lens, the DOF is very shallow. The background is very blurred, but also part of the sheep's nose and mouth is out of focus. I thought that this helped draw attention to the sheep's eye and expression.

BetterPhoto Websites: If you see an orange website link directly under the photographer's name, it's totally okay. It's not spam. The reason: BetterPhoto is the one that offers these personal photography websites. We are supporting our clients with those links.

Unavailable EXIF: If there is no other information but 'Unavailable' in the EXIF (meaning no EXIF data exists with the photo), the 'Unavailable' blurb is not displayed. If there is any info, it shows. Many photos have the EXIF stripped out when people modify the image and resave it, before uploading.

I hear, I forget.
