Such an inquisitive breed, sometimes wonder why they ended up on that side of the food chain though

A nice capture of this very pastoral scene with rolling hills and mountains beyond. Very different from the original in that this composition has many cows for us to look at in this landscape rather than just a portrait of a single bovine. As a shot of these domestic animals in a scenic landscape it is good shot, but it is missing a clearly defined main subject when compared to the original. At least one cow should be the main focus where the eye rests before traveling off within the frame to look at the other cows and landscape. There is so much in the frame I don't know where I should look first. There are two cows in the forefront but they on on the opposite sides of the frame - I am caught bouncing between the two, 'which one should I look at'? I think it would be better if you waited or choose one of the cows in front and positioned yourself at an angle so that one bovine is the showcased star of the herd. The eye could then travel to the cows in back and then the landscape for a better balance/organization of all the subjects in the photo. My other suggestion on how to improve the shot is take if from a lower angle. It adds more visual interest than just the straight and level shot, would give more sense of depth & height to the bovines & the mountain beyond, and possibly eliminate/minimilize/crop out the harsh shadows on the ground.

Hmm. Not terrible, but this just ends up seeming like a snapshot of cows which has been tilted to the right, making the trees and mountain look weird.
