Really nice image and use of the dark barn walls to add contrast to the sheep. A great real capture

A great mono. Really a good BW palette. All tones are well detailed. You did a good techn job. Compo and subjects well fit to this BW. LIKEd

As others have said + lovely textures you've developed in the sheep's coat.

Tonal range and composition drew me in. I lingered because of the texture and subject matter. Not ba-a-a-a-d at all!
