    Yes, of course - I finally had a chance to catch up on the forums, and I think you've come up with a great idea - I'm delighted that you picked my photo for a comparison.

    Love the mixed colours of the cows. An idyllic scene that reflects a feeling of peacefulness. Well captured.

    In a week spent on a relatives farm, I took it upon myself to herd the cows home each evening.

Your photo brings back a lot of pleasant memories as the city lad, playing the country farmer, leads the herd home to the slow melodic sounds coming from the 'bell cow'.

Great shooting angle and composition, My #1

    I like everything in this pic. Nice composition, good sharpness and beautiful colors, nice mist in the background, beautiful view. My 1:st choice.

    Thanks to all of you for the positive comments.

Steve, I have to say this brings back memories of my own summers on a farm in Manitoba, but in fact, this is the Central Experimantal Farm in Ottawa. I always wanted to take a photo in amongst 7 ft high cornfields, so I went there on the way home from work. As I was leaving, these cows were being herded back to pasture, blocking the exit, so I jumped out and grabbed a few shots.

Jade - I have to agree with you. I really like the fact that bossy is looking at me - I think it gives some personality to the shot.

    Very attractive composition. One of my favourites.

    It might be for you but what with milking and an early start tomorrow I dont think so

    While this is a strong image that I like a lot, I had the good fortune to see your first submitted image and I liked that one more. It was more classic, but I can see why you chose this instead. This probably will have more appeal to the panachallenge voters.

    The subject is THE cow who is the star of the image. There is a real dynamic element I do not think I have ever seen as well photographed in a cow photo. This image is in motion and yet completely natural and pastoral at the same time. A remarkable juxtaposition and wonderfully original to my eye. Easily in my top ten with a great play of colour (black and white on green) as well as a play of light against shadow. I think the black and white shadows playing off the black and white cows could have been a disaster but the two work effortlessly together here and compliment and enhance one another. Whether by design or accident, this whole image is a wonderful result.

    Nostalgic for me. Reminiscent of summers spent on my aunt's dairy farm as a boy. I like the subject and composition. It would be just slightly better for me with the lead cow not looking at the camera because of how it implies the presence of the photographer.
