Just goes to show you that love knows no boundaries, it can appear in any shape or size.

I think this will be one of the more unusual shots we see in here. It's a lovely picture of companionship.

Oh, how sweet! She's HUGE =:-O The only pig I've "met" was a baby potbellied pig and she was a hoot; housebroken, trotted around after me grunting for treats, squealed in delight when she saw a friend ... if I lived in a rural area that allowed pigs I'd have brought her home in a heartbeat.

This is just one of those photos that is so unique that you cannot compare it to anything. Thats a small girl. Thats a huge pig. This is candid and well done and really is a slice of life that is truly uniquely portrayed.

that pig frightens me, and look at the innocence of the child who is just fine with it! I'm amazed!

Chrissie is my pig. And she is SOME PIG as EB White would say.

Thanks for the votes but I feel like I fooled the system.

This IS a great pig, a great big pig. But this is NOT a great photo. I like my pig. I think the way she looks at the camera, I like the off-the shoulder dress on the five year old. I like the contrast in size. I like the mood becasue I am giving the pig away and it was a sentimantal moment that came through. And clearly the subject is interesting to an audience!

I do NOT like any of the photographic elements, color is washed out, focus is off. I do not much like to composition, and I HATE the grass in the front. I wish I'd had time for another shot, but YOU try to get a 400 lb pig to pose. I would have given me a 4.

Gosh, Ellen! Congrats on the high ranking with your first submission! Excellent candid shot. Priceless!

This is a wonderful shot, but I think if you'd taken a few steps to the left and shot it you could have avoided those tall blades of grass, which are distracting to your subject.

big pig
  Photographer found comment helpful.

What a sweet moment. It's beautifully framed and the colors are great. The only irksome thing at all is that grass blocking the boar's face. I hope you will be able to clone it out in photoshop after the challenge because the shot is a wonderful keeper. I hereby volunteer my hubby's help (photoghop guru) if you need/want it.
In my top 10 pics for the week. 8, just-married

Lovely scene, great picture, don't know if the grass in the foreground is adding or distracting from the photo? 8-Martin

At first, I thought that I would like this better if it was cropped tighter, but after trying it, I realized that I like the expanse of the field - it seems to give more "weight" to the subjects. I really like this shot, and think it fits the challenge well. lhall-8
