Not much to say, a cow in a field, obviously lost and can't read the sign.

Great shot but seems a little flat and maybe a bit too dark. Have you done much PS work on this?

I like this, but something is niggling me... might be the darker patch at the bottom middle.

Oh, I like this!
Excellent conversion, I'd like to see it in colour too.
The sky does look a touch dark, and a bit fuzzy on the horizon, but I'm only being really picky because I'm jealous as I didn't take it!
Nice one

Gorgeous. Now, how did you get such strong contrast while keeping all that texture and detail? I really like this effect on landscape monochromes.

Thanks everyone for all your comments and observations (and the mod too), yes some PS work and I don't know why but I'm loving dark at the moment so that might explain it. Jem no, lettering was already on the sign but thinking about your comment I could have added something of my own perhaps Wink). Thanks Pete for the HC too. K.

Yes, but it's a nice cow in a nice field. Almost passed this by as the thumbnail is a bit flat and grey, but glad I did'nt.

Wonderful detail in the large version, and I quite like the dark feel to the image.

Love the shot - dark and moody works for me too, especially with all the texture in this shot. The dark patch in the foreground is slightly off-putting though, looks like maybe its a shadow from you? Great shot though.
