I had a choice of about 10 images for this but I chose this one because I like it best. Yes - I like farm animals! Know it won't score well but I don't care. This cow and I had a long conversation and he convinced me this was the way to go.

Thanks everyone for the comments. Funny how commenters liked it and no-one seemed to. Such is life. I still don't regret entering this. I still love the image and the smile it brings to my face everytime I look at it.

Oh, and yes, I skewed it on purpose. It was too static otherwise. And the black at the top is another horizontal bar. It looked funny - like a really odd crop, without it. I'm pretty sure I didn't crop this one at all. Oh, and Ms. Pretty says hello!

Glad2badad - thanks for having the same sense of humor I do. :)

Bummer. Thought for sure you were a top ten with this one. It's funny though, I keep running into your images and saying to myself - "I like this"! Guess there's a reason I added you to my favorites a while back! ;^)

Smile and keep having fun!!!

This is great! I love your take on the challenge theme. I don't know if you rotated on purpose to lose something in the image upper left, or if you did it intentionally to add a unique feel to the photo. Either way it works. B/W is the best choice here as the green in the background trees would have been distracting. Very nice. Good luck in the challenge.

Nice, though that bit of black (rung of the gate, I'm guessing) is distracting. Still...very nice.

I love the animal shot. Great perspective. I like the angle of it as well.

I think you should have cropped right under the cow's nose. I don't think you'd have lost much of the feeling of looking up, and visually it would have more impact.
