Mountain Goat by mattTIDBALL Mountain Goat by mattTIDBALL
MOUNTAIN GOAT 2

The goat doesn't appear to be quite in focus, but that could be due to it moving. Or it could be too small to see the detail on his face. It’s hard to say. It's pretty amazing to get this close a view of a wild Mountain Goat, anyway. And the fact that you caught him in this field of flowers is a major bonus. Even the light is pretty nice. I'd like more of the environment in front of him, to get a sense of where he's going. This composition gives it a very “frozen in time” feel. But, overall, I like it.
What do you think?

I love the sense of shear power you capture in the muscles of the goat. What a beautiful animal! To place that in a field of flowers is even more natrualistic. Raw nature. Beastly and sublime. Over all good job. I would like to see more of the goats face towards me. But I understand why you wouldn't.

I also would have went for a bit more depth of field but that would have been risky with a moving animal. You probably made a good decision to catch what you could and not take the risk. I wonder how close you would recommend getting to such and animal. What's safe?

I've never seen a shot of a Mountain Goat like this before. I've only seen photos of them on the sides of mountains. This is very beautiful.

This is absolutely amazing. You really captured the magnificence of this animal, while also contrasting it against the softness of the flowers. Very well done.
