Good photo, should of put "Wish You Were Here" in a better spot. Looks like it is floating.

I like this, top and bottom. The layering in the receding hills is sweet, as well as the lovely backlit flowers in the foreground. The light is a little hot at the top right, but not enough to be a bad thing. The cow is very cool too, and not expected in a post card.

Great shot, love the silhouette amidst all the flowers! My only problem is I don't actually know where it is!

I enjoy this entry. A bit absurd but really clever! 9

Amazing photo... let down a little by the text IMO

Beautiful contre-jour. I might have just left off the text.

If the cow wouldnt be so much in the shadow this pick would have got a higher score i think. Nice moment and cool lighting but i just personally would have liked to see more of the cow details 6

A place I now want to visit. I may already be there, however. I see some comression artifacts in the text box. Less compression when saving would have helped. At only a 77k filesize, you had a lot more filesize overhead you could have used.

I would have cropped out the large pink oof flower in the lower left - and for a postcard they typically say where they are from. Still like this shot - but I think I would have added a destination

Nice photo that the text confuses, I think. The name of a place would have done it.

i love the natural glow here combined with the red and pink in the cow and flowers

great shot, your text is bland for a postcard, but ill vote on the image..6

Great shot! I like that the cow is a siluete but that the surounding flowers still have details.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

This would have worked much better is the text had been placed in the huge blank white space. Also, the image isn't the best as you lost the details of the cows face shooting into the light - you might have done better using a flash to retrieve some of the cow's details. Having said that, I like what you tried to achieve here - it's a heck of an idea just lacking in execution.

You wish I were there.....To be gored by that bull? Geez. 8

The text takes away from this one instead of adding to it as a postcard submission. It seems like it was just thrown in a random place with random text. The photograph however is very nice.

makes me think more of a 70s Pink Floyd album cover than anything else...

Wish you were where? Not enough information for me for a post card but I will imagine it is on the back. hahah. I do like the flowers and the bull tho.

What a terrific image... very creative crop. I really wish the Text didn't dissect the hill like that, but without that, it's wonderful.

Love the shot, but the wording detracts.
