Sorry about all the sheep. It was a slow month and they were really good looking.

A more than enjoyable image. The bisecting pole transitioned the blur of the lensbaby perfectly.

Of course I typed my comment knowing you'd be the first to read it.

One can try but will likely lose their self identity.

Stirring. Almost unsettling. The bisecting pole is a stroke of crazy genius.

I'm going through the entries, stopping at those images I feel have had the benefit of an unconventional eye and dwelling a little longer to try to see and appreciate what you saw. This is one of those images.

Positives: The boldness of the wooden support column works so well - almost (but importantly not quite) takes the viewer's attention away from the animal. I really like the blur too (Lensbaby?) and the way the lighting catches the highlights on the underside of the sheep.

Critical stuff: I kind of wish the top right corner was black.

Overall: Unusual and interesting.

Love the post right in the middle. The blur, grittiness and dark makes for the feeling that a sad life is being led by these small creatures.

Nice tones for this rural dream. Not crazy about the white top right corner.

Nearly a 'the running' iii? :)
I like this. Very moody. the tones and lighting mean you don't see everything until you stare at it for a while.
