This image was taken at the Georgia State Fair. It would go on to win several first place ribbons and a best of show. It has also won some online photography contest. This is an example of impact. You know what the subject is right away since I filled the frame with it. Rule of thirds is applied at the eye and the horn. The color and texure are very strong too. The tear adds emotion. While it is a great photo for competition it is not a strong seller. Not many people would hang this in their livingroom.
Thanks so much for the spotlight Zapata!!

    I know the species well...they can be quite a cantankerous breed at the best of times, if you cross them, but this guy looks a little sad. Great shot!

    Framed masterfully--you captured the natural flow so well with minimal dramatic light--the lines from the eye make me think 'Trail of Tears'

    this is a wonderful shot! the tear makes me sad though, so I understand the lack of interest in purchasing this. Nice analysis of the shot too!

    I would also really hang it in my room, but I also agree with you we are not most of the people. The tears really add emotion. Amazing image. Thanks for sharing this with your thoughts.

    Fantastic image! I love cattle, and could never raise them for meat because of that.. This image show what I have often seen in cattle, a sensitivity that we really do not understand.. I would hang this up on my wall, proudly!!!
