Bulls Eye

Black And White Photography, David, Photography

Bulls EyeI took this shot while visiting a friends farm where they raise Charolais cattle.This is a close -up cropped shot. Taken with my Leica M9P and the Summicron 90mm f2.0 ASPH lens I have which is a little underused . However is my go to portrait lens. I decided to crop quite heavily  with the eye as an anchor point to give the shot more impact. I think I have achieved what I wanted to do. I would be nice to read what you think dear reader.

    1. They are an interesting breed . There are not many here in Norway so it was quite a novelty to get some shots of them.


  1. I think this photo is super nice, simple, dark contrast, very sharp, nice bokeh …. But if I had been in your shoes or boots, I would have step one step to the left, same height as you were, camera at 45 o angle to the right and let the bull filled completely the frame, no dark background with only his very dark eye as the darkest spot of the photo,

    1. Hi Nelson thanks for the input. I was shooting through an metal enclosure so I didn’t have much room to compose the shot. However I may return again soon and I’ll bare your comment in mind.
