Murry Grigsby 10/23/2007 6:15:36 AM

Maybe it's just because of the order I saw these wonderful images but I still like the first one best :0) This one is nice but the first one was perfect IMHO Judy!! I think the moon detracts a little from the simple warm story of the original version? #4966151

Judith G. Secco 10/23/2007 6:24:42 AM

Thanks so much everyone. Murry I think you may have a good point here. I see what you are saying and appreciate your comments. #4966213

Mike D. Perez 10/23/2007 6:36:47 AM

Very creative and artistic presentation, Judit! I went back and looked at the first posting. I like this one better because of the more textured and brighter background. The brighter composition caught my attention. Could have done without the moon but still a very nice image. #4966304

Tamara K. Walker 10/23/2007 10:49:12 AM

Superb work. #4967432

Marsha S. Smith 10/23/2007 2:29:03 PM

I LOVE this! Looks like some very old oil painting. I love the moon! I looked at the other shot and although I liked it too, this one is definitely my fave of the two. #4968277

Sarah F. Myers 10/23/2007 3:01:45 PM

Emily E.R. Cryer 12/10/2007 9:01:00 PM

Wow... This is a very good photo but it's my worst nightmare... I have a problem with goats and goat related animals. I had a nightmare where one was chasing me one time.
My mother showed me this one a while ago and I thought it was really funny because that's exactly something that would scare me!

But again very good picture!!! =D #5194008

Reworked. Added a moon and some grass and changed the title. I liked this version better than the last post.
