Finally the blossoms opened on the field,i've been waiting to shoot till now, this picture is taken in a domain not far from my home it's called Hengelhoef,today i went out to take some pictures of several places in the domain, it's a beautiful place to stroll and clear the mind, the horse you see here is a " Brabants boerenpaard " in flemish roughly translated it would be " Brabander farmhorse", they are used in the season to pull a wagon with tourists around the domain.

tried to give the picture a dreamy impression
used the median filter to create the effect.
boosted the saturation a bit.
Used the trees on the side for natural framing.

Enjoy !

Hello Leon,
Well I say you achieved the dreamy impression quite effectively. The colors are wonderful as well as the composition. Very interesting farmhorse. Almost like a Clydsedale. Very enjoyable picture Leon...thanks for the dreamy spring. Great feel.


It's really like a dream. Thanks for the sharing. Congrats:)

Dreamy it is, full of softness, a wonderful scene with this heavy horse, Leon, nice PP too !

Leon, very good work and the effect is great.
Well done on this composition.


Very nice softness, beautiful subject
Spring is there !
Bravo Leon

Hoi Leon,
Mooie lente shot van dit Vlaams trekpaard. Ik vind dat zulke mooie paarden: groot, sterk en vriendelijk. Het is goed dat er liefhebbers zijn die het ras in stand houden.

Hi Leon,
looking at such beautiful place where spring is finally around, I have the feeling of moving out of my rainy grey and autumn city and rest there for a while :)
The composition looks like a dream.. very moody!

Nice effect Leon. This is surreal. B

Oh yes, Leon. This is definitely a beautiful dream. You acheived the effect wonderfully and I love it. Such a lovely and peaceful scene of peace and harmony where all is well with the world.....:O)

And it's definitely dreamy Leon! The effect is fantastic, but so is the composition and the colours. A very balanced shot. Well done ;-)
Points tomorrow ok?

Beautiful shot Leon, you have really succeeded with your dreamy impression here. Your composition is excellent with the trees framing the shot. Well done.


What a dreamy photo, well taught & captured.
Ciao Rosana

Ah, een Brabants Trekmeisje ;o). Prachtig effect Leon, en een goede compo met de bomen aan beide kanten. Jammer van de omheining, zonder zou het een perfecte foto zijn. Maar je kunt niet alles hebben hé... TFS.

good pp work...it did the job, yes, it is dreamy and surreal....like in a fairytale:) lovely!

Beautiful animal and well complimented with the shrubs in full bloom. Perfect position on the photo as well. Great job again here my friend.

This photo seems like a dream...I like the green tones that make me peaceful...I like the flowers on the trees...Excellent work...


You definitely succeeded with the dreamy impression. But at the beginning, it is a strong composition with great light and colours. In other words, the PP didn't save a bad shot. Great job!

Une vue poétique, donne l'impression d'une peinture, bravo !

Very nice one Leon, a beautiful composition, it looks like in a dream, like a fairies'place, magical...
Best regards

I love the effect on this one Leon. The soft effect is not too much but gives a gentile softness to the scene. Thanks for sharing the technique,
