John was able to relocate him, he was on the edge of private, he tried to call him over , bull didn’t like it, he rounded up his ladies and left .

Spectacular shot. The lighting , composition. Did you work with filters for this shot ?
Thanks much. Below is the uncropped photo. Separation was an issue and in this case I just cropped out the cow. I shoot RAW and in Lightroom I added some vibrance, dropped the exposure a half stop, added a vignette, and dropped the shadows.

Cottonwoods in the background were already shadowed and the bull stepped into the waning light, so shot out of camera was pretty good before processing. No filter.

I am actually sitting in my pickup and edited this on a crappy laptop in outside light, so not sure if I will like it when I get home and view it on home computer. I got in a hurry since I misplaced my calendar and thought today was Sunday.:D I will likely make adjustments when I get home, maybe try to "clone" out the cow butt so there is more space on left side of the frame.
