Great capture, really good black and white conversion. I think you'll find at some point that it's ok to crop out parts of the animal. What would have bumped this up past a 6 is if there were sharp focus on the face. I think that's the first place people look when staring at an animal. Overall, good job!

Bummer this didn't top 6.
Gave me the same feel as this shot Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_576828.jpg, but not as intense.
I think pictures like this of cows and bulls can be pretty cool, I like this. I'll echo what I said on Simms photo here, as well:

"I hadn't seen this one before... and I was missing out. This is like the cow-porn equivalent of the rugged cowboy shot. Gritty. Excellently done."

Wow what a magnificent pair... I love black and white but I might actually prefer this one with at least some subdued colour, good luck
