I LOVE cows too! This shot is wonderful! She's so cute! I definitely agree with mist that this was very underrated.

I like cows, so naturally I think that this shot should have been placed much higher. Good work.

I like this! Feel sorry about the flies, poor thing, but it is indeed part of a cow's life.

I really like the series of pictures, you seemed to have captured the cow well. I would not have picked the close up of the eye but it works well.

I love this one! The black and white absolutely did it for these images. Especially the one with the flies! I love it

This is an interesting perspective and the two close-ups in particular are well shot. IMO the arrangement might be better if the two were on top of the one, rather than the way it currently is - just strikes me it might be more effective that way. I like how you went with documenting the ordinary for your triptych idea.

Great set - Pic 2 with the flies really stands out as the best image - If the others were in a similar vein this would have been great.
