Farmology series:-)

In one of my photo classes, we were taught that predators have eyes facing front to aid hunting and non predators have eyes facing outwards for defence. It was said that face views of predators were good, non predators needed side profiles.

Then you have the ear tag and the face is centered. The nose is also sharper than the eye, what would Artie say?.

So much for rules, sometimes breaking the rules works, and it does here.

Not a wall hanger at my house, but for an offbeat subject it is fine.

Interesting read @ predator vs. non-predator ROT (oh no, not rules again ) ... a nice nugget to tuck away, but I think I'll still consider the hammerhead shark as a predator, and likewise be wary of inciting Mr. Moose & Mr. Bison

Scott, it strikes me a bit strange with the eyes so oof. Given that I doubt it was an "oops" on your part, maybe you could help me a bit with some editorial as to your objectives on this one. I'm kinda somewhere between, "Huh?" and "Hey, that's different" atm.

I like the foreground in focus even if the eyes are not as sharp. Large OOF areas in the foreground always bother me.

Also it is relatively easy to sharpen the eyes further. I would zoom in and clean the edges with the clone tool or even a fine tipped paint brush.

"Farmology", what a great title. Thinking of grouping some of the poultry and large animal images I have into a new gallery on my website, rather than mixed in with mostly birds. May I take the term?

Interesting re predators. Thanks.
Yes, technical errors. I posted it despite that. Why? Wondering to what degree that is problematic and to what degree the mood wins out. Of course the combo could be better still.
Finally, not a wall hanger at my house either. But you should see what is!!
Thanks for the feedback Ben.

Well said.
Wish I had more DOF.
But, does the mood, the "Hey that's different" do enough?

Oh, and originally I was planning to shoot the mouth/snout in focus and the eyes way out but the angle was wrong for that kind of drama.

Thanks Jim.
Why not. I'll try to do a bit more edge sharpening/clone cleanup as you suggested.
I almost always do the easy thing first: see how far I get in LR before deciding whether to open up PS.

I like it. An appropriate use of symmetry.
