I can't believe I never commented on this! One of the best sheep shots, ever. Congrats on the blue and the bling.

WD on your ribbon. Sheep are starting to become quite famous at DPC.
Another top ten entry with no 1's, 2's, 3's or 4's. Quite a feat. See if you can find the other one...

This image has caused me to stop and pay attention. That means it is in my 7-10 voting band. (Voted earlier)

Additionally, it is highly interesting/eclectic meaning it keeps me here long enough to offer a longer comment and a vote of 8 or more.

This is one of my 9s - I like it a lot. Furthermore I think it enriches the DPC collective portfolio. Put simply, I wish we saw more stuff like this. Let me tell you why it pushes all the right buttons for me:

1. Looks like a classic 21.gif P-A-U-L to me, your sheep shots are amazing.

2. I like how they are coming in force; as if answering the question 'Ewe and who's army?'

3. Wonderful tones, bleak but simultaneously warm.

4. Great use of low contrast.

5. Great use of the dim light - how well you have communicated it.

Overall, delightful.
