Sir Donald, I think the sun's rays really make this shot. Of course, the grain is pretty cool also.

I like to see the 'rules' broken and I want to like the cow looking out of the frame, but this time I don't :( Love the cow though :):)

Nice fuzzy cow feelings. Love the lateral divisions in this photo, and the rain of beams.

Nice image, but the background feels a little too grainy while I can't see a whole lot of graininess in the foreground.

6 - Nice image - wish it had more space on the left to balance it out a little more.

It would have been better if you had more DOF

I'd like to see a version in color. The rays of sun look great in the back. Nice composition.

I feel as though the cow shouldn't be looking out of the frame. I would be interested in seeing a different crop of this, horizontal possibly?

I am drawn to the fence and then to the cow but then I follow the cow out of the shot. There is something I like about this shot though.

Lovely image... with the cow and the rays... I wish I had a catchlight in the eye to make this really special. I wonder if they're legal to dodge in Advanced... (not voting yet)

Cool rays from the clouds. Would have preferred the focus to be on them.

I love the backlit profile. I wonder if bringing up the highlights a smidge would have given it more contrast. :~)
