How did I make the theme my own?

I wanted to showcase something other than just a nice sunrise in the morning. I decided to photograph my brother's cows since he feeds them every morning.  

What do I like about my photo?

I like the effect I used on the photo and I like the angle of the gate in the picture. The gate gives the photo nice implied lines.

What would I change about my photo?

Next time I would try to have the cows in the background more in focus.

What actions did I run and what did I do with these actions?

First I cropped the photo and adjusted the brightness/contrast. Then I ran the photo through "Fog Monster" from the ghost stories actions. As my final step I adjusted the brightness/contrast again.

What photo from last week do I think is the best and why?

My favorite from last week's theme of Windows was Eric Mashek's photo. I enjoyed the different effects he added to the picture to make it more interesting. The different colors in the photo help to move your eyes around the picture.
