Anna Knapp-Peck down between her oxen, Bramble and Rose (2000 lbs. each), getting in position to hitch a log sled to the yoke, at The Wilder Homestead (as in Almanzo Wilder, husband of Laura Ingalls Wilder), Burke, NY. I do have photos of them with better IQ, but this one has an unacknowledged (by her) tension that I think overrides the IQ issues.
(Okay, so I critiqued myself.)

At first glance, it looks like the real story here is about her,
and not the animals. You captured her intensity beautifully.
But it is her interaction with the oxen that fuels that intensity;
so ultimately it all works as an engaging and interesting shot.
