There's a a disjointed symmetry to this image, I wonder if you took the S curve of the cow's shapes into account when framing this, or if you saw it later and then cropped accordingly. Still, the expression on the cow is priceless. ;)

First it was the grinning donkey and now the flabbergasted cow, what in the world are you saying to these animals when you're shooting them?!? :-) Should we start calling you Dr. Doolittle?

Rockin' shot. :)

This is beyond good - this is awesome. You gotta love the things a wide angle lens can see. Even so, it's the expressions you captured here that make this an incredible shot. DPC prize or no, this is one fine picture.

9 - Great capture and example of perspective, fish eye 'advantage' or not. Toning works well here and I imagine any variation in toning, including sepia/colors, as well as the natural colors, still be a great shot. Detail is very good. Really like the angle. Given both the sloping landscape as well as the position of the mother, I wonder if a slight variation in composition and/or framing (wider?, not sure) may have made this an even better image.edit:typo & congratulations
