or.. the ghost of the Griggstown Ghost Cow...

itsa no flash - that's sunlight. as for me, i like that the right side draws your eye and gives context - and keeps the ghost from being the first thing you notice. but i'm a no dpc.

I thought this was posthumous. His entry. Now I wonder if it is posthumous dressed Dickensianly, hands in pocket, with a cowhead head. This your idea of a night out? I am way too literal. This is transcendent.

haha! I've never seen a ghost cow before! (I wonder if I can do a ghost bluebird...?)

I actually find this shot very interesting. I don't think the right 1/3 helps much, though. I draws my eye, and I want to look at the cow.

Man my tastes have evolved since playing on this site -- it would have been a 3 before, now it's a 7!

I have no idea what this is. The reflection is interesting. I do not like the texture of the thing on the right.

For the first time in my life I can say: That's a spooky cow. Very interesting image, I like it alot.

Wow. Cool! The strong water glare is a bit bothersome, but it's just a really interesting image! (not voting)

Weird - definitely unique. I like the left hand side of your image. The right hand side is a little harsh with the flash though - at least to me.

funny, what were you shooting through? it is more than just the light...

Simple picture, nice idea. Good effect. The light besides the cow is fundamental to this ghost effect...

I really like the artistic aspect of this photo! Great job! I am trying to figure out what it is? A reflection in a puddle of water, and the image reversed? Wonderful artistic photo!

i wish you had cropped about an inch off of the right side because the brightness of the stone because of the flash is pretty distracting

Lots of interesting stuff to look at! I think I actually like it better with the stuff on the right cropped out. Other than that, very cool look and certainly original!

Oh wow. That's kinda cool, but anyone who knows me, knows I love all things bovine. I like the lines and sense of the ethereal. COOL
