Reminds me of the parts between earth worm Jim that game....
"Well Done"
"Weeelllll DooonnnE"

I really like the compostion in this, even though there is a whole bunch of cows... the one sticking it's head out, demands all the attetnion.

Great work :)

Impressive in its visual impact. Bumping up.
08/30/2005 08:51:36 PM
Good use of wide angle. Must have been lucky or really good to get all those cows posing for you.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/30/2005 06:42:53 PM
What a great merger of creative thinking, accomplished framing and excellent use of equipment! Everything about this shot sings to me of craftmanship. Apart from its obvious humorous leanings, this photograph expresses your theme perfectly with inclusion of the distant farm buildings and the vast pastures. One of my top ten picks for the challenge.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/30/2005 02:03:47 PM
I don't really like most of the cow submissions... but this one is great. The look in the eyes of the front cow is hilarious. :)

funny angle on an overdone theme... 6
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/28/2005 01:43:26 PM
I'm partial to cows. They have such an endearing curiosity. You have captured the essence of that in this image. IMO, it's one of the best in this challenge.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/28/2005 10:08:18 AM
You made my day - I almost dropped my coffee when I came across your shot - If cows can have expressions, you captured it!!!!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/27/2005 10:06:04 PM
hehehe, that's great!
top five atleast.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/27/2005 01:29:52 PM
Is this done with a fisheye lens? I really like it. Aside from the laugh factor - the colors are great and the composition is awesome. I love the perspective with the little house way in the background off to the right.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/27/2005 11:54:17 AM
Superb! A winner for sure!

What a great picture. Love the expression on front cows face. Those eyes
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/26/2005 03:47:00 PM
great shot! I'm undecided about the inclusion of the house in the background, but I understand there may have been little you could do about it--in any case, it's pretty minor, and the photo is interesting and engaging.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/26/2005 03:18:34 PM
By far the best image in this challenge. Well done!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/26/2005 02:44:33 PM
hahahaha, this looks incredibly funny!
I'd say it's the best cow shot amongst the others for this challenge!

08/26/2005 12:39:32 PM

08/26/2005 04:33:43 AM
Nice wide angle work. This is one of my favorites.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/26/2005 12:46:56 AM
How funny! I love it!! What type of lens did you use to get the distortion. Whatever it was, it sure did catch the attention of the cows and had them posing nicely. 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/26/2005 12:10:36 AM
Although I find the long nose disturbing in some way, I like the photo.

08/25/2005 06:14:13 PM
This is too funny! I love the curious cow!

  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/25/2005 01:42:49 PM
Oh, wow! I don't think I have a lens that does that. Anyhow, a very whimsical, dramatic image.

08/25/2005 09:18:31 AM
Excellent shot. I love the cow peering right at the viewer. One of my favorites of the cow entries. Coloring and clarity are good as well. 9
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/25/2005 03:51:04 AM
Maybe one of the best cow pics that I've found in this challenge. It's humourous, fun and tehnically a great shot as well. The colours are great, the matt green of the grass and yet the saturated browns of the cows create a great contrast. And of course what produces the best effect is the wide angle, and you've managed to successfully focus on the cow's eyes...hm... Did he lick your camera? :P The only advice I could have given you was either to somehow avoid the ranch in the far right, or to just crop it off in photoshop, but if you don't want to loose the balance by cutting that cow's butt, then well you can just clone it out after the challenge.

08/24/2005 06:25:24 PM
Amazing image. I love the colors. The saturation on the cows as well as the grass. The main cow in the foreground gives such a unique perspective..... Looks like hes sniffing your lens. I'll give it a 10!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/24/2005 04:17:47 PM
HEE HEE I love the elongated appearance of the nose of the front one. This is hilarious.

08/24/2005 03:47:41 PM
Very funny perspective. Could possibly be slightly under exposed, otherwise well done.

Good use of wide angle. Adds humour.

08/24/2005 08:34:23 AM
Much better cow picure. I like the use of the wide angle too. Would have been kinda neat to have had the Gateway cow back there be the center one but those darn cows just never seem to listen.
