Not up to my usual standard I know but these cows are on the edge of Glastonbury Festival so they are super cool cows. I expect this one to flop with a low 5 score if I am lucky and expect the processing won't be everyone's cup of tea.

Now this is a surprise. I honestly didn't think this would be received too well.

Well how wrong was I? I am very surprised to ribbon with this but certainly not complaining. Thank you for all the kind words and generous votes. Nice to have a decent score after my mediocre efforts in the DPL.

It's funny that you stated that you did not think people would like the processing. It is vibrant but still seems natural. I came into this shot just to ask if you could send me a quick PM on your editing process? Is this all Photoshop? Do you use plug-in? I would love to know your steps.

Also, processing aside this was a challenge for photographers to shoot "their" style and I knew this was yours the moment I saw it without reading the titel. You have done something not many on DPC have accomplished and that is to develop a style that is not only great but recognizable as your own.

Very well deserved ribbon.

Having a herd of cows as my back yard neighbors, I'm impressed you found a nice clean patch of grass on which to take this, lol :)

The one in front is funny but I really like the other one. There's something about it hanging back with that facial expression and it just makes me laugh. Good luck!

Not sheep? Awwww....! But what a wonderful face! I still need to figure out how you do your shots. I have sheep around here, and I'd love it to turn out like yours!

This definately defines your and your work; love it. (voted earlier)

This makes me smile, Paul!


I wish you'd left the grass more "naturally shot" but the rest... brilliant!

I love it!!


Fabulous!

Haha. A very signature shot. Wonderful work Paul.

No surprise in this one, except that it wasn't a sheep! Really interesting texture on the nose and snout of this cow!

Someone has an amazing sense of smell. Nice in your face cow picture, not your best but love the humor (and perspective).
  Photographer found comment helpful.

That is one BIG head he has there. As always love the filters you use.

Front page stuff Paul, no one does cows like you!!

Oh my gosh! How much fun is this?! The "curly" treatment you have subtly applied is so perfect. Methinks you are lucky s/he did not blow slime all over your camera. :-)

This is such a great photo! It seems like the cow on the right has a slight halo along with the little cows in the background.

You'd definitely have to do cows or sheep. Too bad you didn't have one of your misty days - though the overreach of the cow combined with the wide angle makes for a very enjoyable shot.

06/26/2015 11:53:47 PM
Hehehehehe. The inquiring eye makes the shot.

Wow, that is some distortion. And some flash? The light seems a bit odd.

Being a country boy, this automatically drew a chuckle. Nice shot!

Moo.

You really didn't need to put your username on this one (except for that whole DQ thing of course)

The cow whisperer strikes.lovely texture- you bring the sky to the fields, and vice versa.
