Thanks to all who voted for this photo and who commented. That car had come roaring over the hill and was hard on the brakes to get stopped. His main problem was the car just to the right, out of the frame, who was also stopped looking at some burros :-). The buffalo had been meandering along the edge of the road, grazing, and had kinda looked up to watch this guy try to get stopped. I was taking pictures of the baby burro when all this came down so I happened to be in position to get this pic.

This pic is too priceless for words! Sure, maybe lacking a little in the technicals, but it's a great spontaneous capture. SUV meets slab of buffalo the same size as it :-) Please keep shooting and entering!

Nice shot, I gave this a 6. I liked the idea, tho I didnt think the square crop helped and I wished the colors would have been a bit more vibrant.

Crowis, is your monitor calibrated? The sky here certainly isn't a deep dark blue but it isn't blown out, at least on my monitor, I edited the pic and I see a light blue but not white sky.

Love the theme and picture, wish it had a bit more contrast, and less sky blow out.

This is not benefiting from tight square of the frame. I'd want some space on the back of the car and the bull, otherwise there's too much of boring, unfocussed grass in the shot.

That's cool. Even the car's 'expression' is appropriate.
