    Yes, she was rather disgruntled looking. As to the soft fur, I cropped to the head because her whole back end was covered in mud (maybe the reason for the sour look?)

    This is such a beautiful cow. Her fur (hair?) looks so soft. It looks like she just got out of a wash and blow dry. lol!

    Little soft in the detail but is a great shot of the cow.

    A clever chop makes this photo.

    I had a bit of trouble with the crop - I was trying for rule of thirds at eye level, but couldn't quite make it. Not sure about the motion blur Jade, - that cow hardly moved a muscle the whole time I was there! I was really having trouble getting a good exposure, so it was probably something I did.

    I'm thinking there is a little motion blur or a too shallow depth of field, something that makes the fur look a little too "soft focus". Well presented and framed with a really nice background.

    A fine subject for the challenge. The lighting and focus is well done here. Perhaps a slightly looser crop with a little more space on the right is in order. In my favs.
