It works for me. The only thing I would do is to maybe just crop a little off of the bottom of the image. Nice!  :)

For me the main focal point the cattle are just too distant, it looks a little washed as well, I think A crop will pull in the cattle I'd be very tempted to increase contrast and increase saturation a little...as always that's just my eye...one opinion in a sea of billions....otherwise nice shot.

I like it! But, at least in this small size, I see it almost like an abstract scene with subtle colors.

I like the pastel colours and the sense of vastness.

Thank you - that was my goal for it.  Shaunw - I see your point as well.  I think that by calling it "The Herd" perhaps I have put emphasis on a part of the picture that I did not mean to put emphasis on.  "Early Morning Range with Cattle" might better reflect the purpose of the shot and its final presentation :)

I agree with the comments by shawnw but absolutely love the colors and overall composition. I think any potential failing it might have due to the size were seeing it, is more than offset by the end result.

fwiw, some here are sensitive about titles but Im not one of them.
