Lovely back-lighting on this handsome fellow. Very nice contrast with the grass. A pleasing and effective portrayal-good work!

The lighting sets off the Bull's rack beautifully.

A good angle with him coming forward on the diagonal and he pops well from the background.  A  shame he didn't raise his head a little more but he's a handsome bull with the raised foot implying motion, which is a bonus.  Nicely done in sweet light, Jason.

Excellent capture. Those antlers really show up nicely;y against the dark background. Consider cloning out the lighter spots in the background.
