Maybe the birds feel the bullock owes them something for cleaning him of ticks Smile

I like this, it's unusual, and it says something about life. The space on the left doesn't really add anything, I agree about a tighter crop. I'd also like to try to get a bit of detail into the bullock's eyes. I shall go and have a play with this...

I've uploaded a quick Mod. I think the tighter crop concentrates attention on the relationship between the two groups. I do like the fact that the bullock is looking at the camera whereas the birds on its back are looking at their friends.
Apart from the crop, I have strengthened the darker tones a bit in Levels, done a bit of dodging and burning on the eyes (but I don't think it's visible, they are so small in the frame), and cloned out a couple of minor distractions in the vegetation.

I like it, is it uncropped? if not, it needs less room on the L & more on the R

I think this is well seen and amusing. I would take a bit off top, left and bottom and just a tiny stroke with the dodge tool across the bullocks bodied.

A very interesting picture. Both of the mods work well with a slight preference going to the one by jm1. Andy

There's a portrait in there too.

I've also converted it to sRGB.

Please see my mod.
