I took this on a visit to my friend who's family run a dairy farm in Cornwall.

I planned to get a picture of a calving cow for the challenge but from a completely different angle. I took loads over about 10 minutes while my friend yanked the poor thing out - this one seemed to carry the most impact.

Great photo, but you will no doubt lose marks for it being slightly gross and (harshly) because there was a similar photo in the previous challenge. Maybe also from those who at first glance thought it was a sick cow, rather than a cow being born. Technically sound, but I maybe would have cropped to include the whole cow and lose the sky. 8

Really an incredible moment towitness, great capture. Photo quality is good.

Strange shot for a competition. Still, I like it! Might even have been better with a slight cropping from top. Get rid of the light blue sky, it disturbs the interesting part of the image.
