I'm totally enamoured of the texture of Marzena's image. As someone else commented, you can almost smell the farm in that picture.

A lot of these are really good- they bring the viewer into the image, etc.

Cast your vote now and make it counts! It looks like epenguin is slowly pulling away from Borek. Can he maintain the lead, or will Borek catches up?

244 views and 14 votes. Everyone just checking their score or do we just have apathetic posters? ;)

Any chance to have a shortcut to future voting threads automatically posted to the General Discussion so more can vote?

AlephZero, you got my vote, you couldn't pose a sheep to look better. Work a bit on your lighting and exposure, and I'm sure you will get more votes.

I wanted to move the whole contest back into GD (where it originally started), but didn't get much support.

The trick is to spread some mint sauce in the places you don't want them to go :devil:

But by the time you've done that they've moved! Particularly the one in the gap in the wall who is essential to the composition! I think this was taken in a slight mist and it's got to look misty, so a bit washed out. Maybe could be improved but at same time any improvement detracts, I was very taken by this photo as well as marzena's.

Where is it? Looks like could be England (Yorkshire?) or Wales but there are places and walls not unlike that in the US.

North Derbyshire - not far from the border with Yorkshire.

Following the technical comments, I've discovered the color balance on my monitor has been screwed, probably for such a long time that I've just got used to it. The color profile was set up for some completely different hardware, for reasons unknown.

Having fixed it, it is looking very strange to me right now until I get used to it, but it's probably more like what everybody else was seeing (and I now agree those sheep look very pale and wan!)
