I was wearing a bright orange shirt when I came across these cows at a farm outside of Charlottetown, PEI. They followed my every move! I felt like a stranger in a strange place for sure!

Thanks! I was inspired by my last vacation. PEI was so nice. However, not inspired enough to remember to set the clock on the camera. It's really discouraging that an amateur gets dq'd for the time on the camera, while trying to compete with real professionals. And part of the reason I haven't participated here in over a year. I find the comments have gotten much less helpful, from a technical perspective, than they used to be. I would have had a 5.5 on this image, which would have been one of my highest.

Oh well, will set the time and play by the rules next time. I hope DPC finds its way again toward helping people learn and improve their craft.

I 'git' it! Bit soft and flat though - nice idea, nice poses!
