I shot this earlier this summer but I didn't think it was good enough. Its far from perfect but I decided it wasn't that bad. :) It's from a ravine just south of the outskirts of the city I live it. (Lund, Sweden)

Hehe. :) I know what you mean. They did look like they thrived there. They were rather used to people these sheep. They came right up to me when I took my photos. That's how I got my close-up shot (rather badly named:) "Cheap Edit"

All the elements of this work toghether from a composition standpoint. The creek enters upper right and slowly meanders across to the lower left. It organizes the whole scene. The trees meander with it, repeating themselves nicely, back and forth. Finally, the shape of the valley also curves, both with the stream and as a shallow U across the frame. But without the sheep to occupy it (not too few, not too many!), the little valley might look too empty. Everything in its place!

I like this Klas. After reading your remarks, I've looked at it very closely. I think you're a little hard on yourself. Perhaps it's just a bit dark, but any more lighting would have increased glint on the water and foreground tree leaves. As mentioned about, the framing is beyond reproach. All in all, this is a gorgeous image, and there's no doubt it's a ten, at least in my book.

Klas, Im glad you posted this one after all. Its a real beauty. It reminds me a lot of the streams I played in as a kid, we made pretend boats made from twigs and leaves and sailed them downstream. The viewpoint you chose is just perfect. If the photo were brighter I expect the grass would have shown more yellow and wouldnt look so lush. You have just enough sheep here to look interesting, more would have made it to busy. All in all its a job well done.

Thank you Robert and bgeek. :) I appreciate the input. I think I was lucky in many respect when I took this one, considering how the sheep spread themselves in the valley for one.

The thing I liked the least myself with it and the reason I doubted about uploading it was that the texture on some of the sheep's backs were burnt out in the highlights and I usually find that disturbing. In other words I definitely agree that the image should not have been brighter. It may seem a bit dark I guess, since the shadows on the left are quite deep because of my choice of exposure.

Hi Klas
today I was looking at your gallery again and found this image which I didn't remember seeing before.
Don't understand how I could possibly miss it.
Its a lovely landscape...allmost to lovely.
It gives me a feeling watching a landscape of the teletubbies.( children TV )
The greens in this image give me a spring feeling.
personaly I prefer less perfect landscapes...but now and then I can live with such pretty clean environement.
