This majestic lady has proven difficult to photograph.

But she is quite stunning, and still available. So I'd like to try to shoot her again with your ideas.

250mm 4 feet away, f7 at 1/10 second.

Spend some time looking around here https://photography-on-the.net/forum/forumdis​play.php?f=38

Tickle her under the chin and see if she smiles. Nice shot, maybe a little more light?

Have patience. All things are difficult before they become easy ;)

Shoot it in portrait orientation instead of landscape. Get all of the legs in the shot. Try to get it when the light is nice and diffused again (like you did). Take a few with different exposures (+ & -). With all the light and dark it makes for a tricky exposure balance.
