Think number 5 of Charlie (and after that number 1) would sell to me if I was looking at an adoption site. I think number 5 is the best in terms of colour, highlights and sharpness.
Thanks Zoundz, number 5 seems to be popular and it has my vote

Thanks KenTT, yes your right, a nice blue sky really helps, but not always available to us

Can't vouch for horses but rescue photographs are a funny one as it depends very much on your tactic - do you want the animals looking their best for prospective owners or do you want the shots to convey 'in need' of rescue ?
Photography wise - (of the Charlie's) Number 5 gets my vote - composition works well and the colour on the coat is much richer.
Blaze & Quincey are an impressive duo although the image is a little soft. What are they ?
Mr Patch - where do I get the forms !
Black Beauty - again very impressive looking perhaps lacking a little contrast ?
Jo - cows have the most expressive eyes - I'm sure we used to hace a cow group on here lol
Quincey - Again a bit soft perhaps but what a lovely looking horse.
Thanks Phil, the photo's are just for the web site and when i say adoption, it's just a money raising exercise, people pay £7.00 PA to adopt a animal, they only get photo, cert & birthday card. the animals for already in their forever home at the rescue, I think i'm going with No 5

I do some shots for a dog shelter, and I love it, it's sad, rewarding and fun, all at the same time
Thanks Moonstone, glad to say Charlie will always have a home at the rescue, he was so badly treated it would be unsafe to re-home him with some other than the special people they have at the rescue, he now has behavioural issues

Thank you BlackCloud, it's a very special place and helping out gives me other purpose in life, as well of course my own animals, which arrive here unexpectedly
i think it's because people know i can't say no to animals in need
