The Stand Off

Photograph by Mark Littlejohn,
Date: July 4th, 2011

Camera: Pentak K-5
Focal Length: 19mm
Aperature: f/8
ISO: 200
Exposure: 1/45 sec

Note: Mark Littlejohn was staring down a field of cows when he caught the perfect moment. I love the lighting from the back, silhouetting the cows. The long shadows add a great deal of interest, as well as the fog in the background. The cows are stacked in interesting positions, especially the one in the far back right. He is a loner, but is still interested in what is happening in from of the herd of cows. Very cool & dreamy like scene!

Tip: Lighting plays a huge part of this photo. It projects the long shadow and gives the cows the silhouette look. Post-processing was done to the photo to give it a cool-gray look.
