    There is a wildlife refuge near my house and I enjoy visiting to try and a get great Buffalo shot. This is the best one so far. DCA7813A-3010-4C34-963C-DD95E6D5B2DB.jpeg

    A striking beast and I like the way the shape of its back mirrors the mountain behind.

    I often think that shots of wildlife benefit from more space and context rather than 'focussing' on the animal itself.

    The first thing I noticed was the similarity between the back of the animal and the mountain ridge. It makes for a strong picture. I would have liked a bit more foreground though, with grasses.

    Thanks for the input, I’ll keep trying different compositions.

    I like the idea of a little more foreground but wouldn't want to sacrifice having the mountains in the image. Nice image of a majestic creature!

    What a majestic animal. That is a fine shot, the distant mountains give a sense of scale to the scene. I do agree, a bit more space around him would look even better.
