Amazing. My impression is that I am a lilliputian climbing up the side of a furry animal that has a couple of sticks stuck in its fur on its back... Beautiful image!

Voted (8 and top three) but never managed to comment. Noble Capra strikes again. Can't believe that folks was fooled (well except for that Ben Spurgeon guy, who is notably easy to fool ... he has, for example, often been deluded into giving me high marks).

This deserved the blue!! So glad it made top 5. One of the few 10's I ever give out.

Fantastic, I'm a fool, although now it makes sense.

AWESOME shot , just awesome. More than a well deserved HM.

Fooled me! I thought it was a dogscape. Does that fall under the art rule, I wonder? Congrats on 4th with this rather unusual take on the challenge. Apparently you fooled more than just me! :-)

I suspected it might actually be animal fur. It does make a great horizon. Glad to see it got the appreciation it deserved.

I'd recognize that goat anywhere!!! No 10 for you because I don't want to get raided, but...

Magnificent. A mythical landscape of a photograph. Not just my favorite in the challenge but my favorite seen on DPC in a long while. 10.

I like how the hay and clouds share some common texture.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Nice depth and texture.

The hair of the dog! VERY cool interpretation!

A little tight for a horizon shot. But the flow in the hay is really sweet.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/09/2010 07:34:39 PM
The windblown look of the grass really draws the eye in.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Thought it was a cows back until i spotted the pieces of wood, overall i really like it, its different and fits the challenge perfectly a 9.

This is fantastic. I had a similar idea with a semi-similar scene and I at least know I was correct with my vision, as this is superb, but my execution certainly didn't match this. Glad I decided to enter some other lousy photo, as this would have just put a spotlight on the difference in quality.

The way the grass fades to black is wonderful, the detail is crisp yet soft enough to give it a blanket feel. The contrast between blades is great. Clouds as well. Overall great composition. One of my favorites in a field of top-quality entries. Well done.

Came back to fave this. I might paste in on my glasses.

I can feel the texture in this phot and my eye goes right to where it is supposed to. Great angle.

Cool effect in the hay, It looks more like fur.

Oh goodness. This just might be one of my top 3. Love the pov, the textures, and the incredible lighting. Killer image.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/06/2010 09:31:23 AM
OMG!! I love this. It's as if the hay is a hairy animal and the two trees at the top are sticks stuck in it. This is almost surreal. Just awesome. 1=

Definitely my favorite. Love the toning, the perspective, the vignette. Good luck!
