A moor doesn't have really straight lines, and the trees are mostly not angled 90 degrees with the soil. Approaching it to what we mostly like to see, you are possibly right. We want to see straight lines. It is always good to discuss about a picture for improvement (I like to do this) I prefer it like this, with just that little space behind the Ewe on the left.
I like down to earth photography. :)

That it is a very well organised crowd! Superb idea and exection.

I'm in the camp that would prefer a bit of anticlockwise rotation but if it would mean trimming the edge lambs, I'd rather leave it as it.

I agree - the space to the left is very important to let the eye enter the frame and to establish the size of the group as being modest, not 1,000.

Very good image, really gets the imagination going. I would not like to loose the space on the left sheep, which means rotation is not possible. I do feel the image appears slightly rotated to the eye though.

Perhaps in Photoshop you can use the Edit/Skew command to lift the right side of the image. You will then loose only from the bottom and top of the image, not the side. You may then end up tight on the dog, which does not make for a balanced image. In the end it may be best to leave the image as it is....
For a successful technology reality has to take precedence over public relations, as nature cannot be fooled.

The bitter taste of poor quality lingers much longer than the sweet smell of low prices.

Another fan of leaving the space at the left as is. For me the photo looks straight - i wouldn't change anything.

Thanks everyone! I have been away a few days (on a self organised phototrip to Italy) I have to catch up.
