i do not like this photo at all but i felt i needed to enter something for my WPL team. this shot isn't "me". still, thought i would have some fun with the title. "Grazing in the Grass" by Friends of Distinction...a very groovy song from the 60's.

I like the shot Sher! I would never have guessed it was one of yours.
But the title.... from the 60's.
I didn't know they had music way back then.

Wow! Why don't you like it! I LOVE IT!!! And I am really surprised that it didn't score much much higher.

Very nice! Maybe a little more contrast would have added interest to the grass and the sky, but anyway I like this very much!

nice, the grass looks strange, though, and i'd crop a little on the left.

I like this photo, but that long title spoils the charm of it, in my humble opinion.

Good try, it is very hard to do this technique with diffused light source like a cloudy day. Great effort.

Beatiful colours. I´m not sure if the composition are the better one. Perhaps, I´d prefer to see more sky and less grass, but just my opinion. Well done.

I don't like what you did to the contrast, but I do like the picture overall.

I love that song!!!! This is lovely. I like that he's flicking his tail. I also like your choice of duotone. The contre jour is subtle, but I think it suits the challenge well.
