  1. I like the idea and, particularly, the nose intruding top right. My concern here if that the processing makes it appear more illustration than photo, as if the stands of wool are drawn. The effect is strongest in the flank of the sheep on the right.

  2. My reaction is very similar to that of Mike: the composition works very well but I think that the processing intrudes just a bit. Although it does accentuate the quality of the wool, and that might be said to work, it doesn’t work so well on the face.

  3. I thought this was fantastic. I found each time I opened it that i took a fraction of a second not to see the nose as an eye. I did not question or worry about the toning, even the comments didn’t make me question it. However your second post did make me think that the toning might be a bit overdone. However the nose separates nicely from the wool with the way the image is currently handled.

    So I am not sure about the current treatment as I would like that separation of nose and coat to be maintained.

  4. I keep on doing the eye/nose thing as well.

    the wool looks to be the colour I’d expect, there is a grundgy look if that is what is meant by processing in the above comments. But again I’d expect that from long wool probably laden with oils and dirt.

    The dark line and cool toned nose play well off of each other, the picture feels balanced.
