Much better composition here. You might try reducing the gamma by about 35 percent (i.e., adjust lighting levels). Very nice, restful picture. Gary

It is always fun to see the bighorn.. Saw them butting heads a few weeks ago in Glacier. I'd love to get a shot of that but there was too much foliage in the way. I like the simplicity of the rock background. You got a great shot of the textured curl. I'm wondering if a closer crop would give him more majesty against the weight of all that rock. I tried a workshop, but I am working on my laptop... outside... so who knows how it will look!
