    I like the last one best, the first is not bad though. Did you try to edit image, maybe try an HDR technique as the colours seem over processed. Thats why I like the last one best, that and its like its hiding :p

    Yea, the more I look at the middle two, the more it appears I made them look like crap with Aperture :(

    Thats call nature photography, I really like all those photos Buffaloes are given over here,
    I think Its a forest buffaloes. I like mostly nature photos and I like to collect different types of nature photos.

    You might want to crop out the out-of-focus grass in the foreground.

    I'd also add a bit of fill light in the ones with obviously dark shadows on the subject & dial in some local contrast enhancement. The knob in Lightroom that does this is called "Clarity", not sure what it's called in Aperture.

    You can go even further with tone curves, but that's something that takes a long time time to learn how to use effectively...

    I think the grass adds a nice touch of depth, and beauty
