Farmlife Framed: Wintery weather and livestock newborns

Tips for taking a great farm photo

Be sure to send your photos in as high resolution as possible – the higher the better for print quality. They can be cute, funny, romantic – pretty much anything goes (within reason).

Images need to be high-resolution – that’s about 2,400 pixels wide or a minimum 2MB file size ideally. When uploading to our galleries, don’t forget to tell us a bit about the photo, including where it was taken.
