Picture taken at the same location as the earlier one.Here you can see the other farmhorse.I've been standing there for almost a half hour to get this shot, wanted to have the perfect lighting with the sun in my back and the horse was standing on the other side,she was slowly coming to me and it took her 1/2 hour to reach the spot I wanted her to stand ..horses can be difficult models :-))

color balance and median on the grass part

Enjoy !!

Well, I enjoy it, Leon. I think these are beautiful horses, and you captured this one in one of its favourite activities: eating ;o). You framed it perfectly with these blossoming trees. It was well worth that half hour of your life, wasn't it ? TFS.

How nice this composition is, Leon, again a picture of the horse. You composed this in a fine way, the strong horse filled with the softness and colours of the trees in a huge part, nice done !

Tha is good title, Leon. There is something about trees in bloom that always seem serene. And the combination with the house makes it a special beauty (it is what I mentioned about getting life into a shot). I am amazed at how you got the horse so sharp and the tree next to it almost blurred. Or is it just perfectly controlled shallow dof?

Oh God! Those horses are really something! They seem to have boots on!!
I like this one too, both the compo and the colours are great, but I think I have a little preference for the other one... That soft blur was kind of romantic :-)
Either way this one is great too.

Beautiful with that apple tree in flowers and the horse just under. A magnificient composition Leon! We can make a poster of it.
Best regards

Your patience paid off Leon. Great shot. I love the lovely spring flowers and the horse is positioned in just the correct place. What a magical orchard. Very good job!
Is he a Draft horse?

A beautiful horse, I like what you did with the background and kept the trees in focus with the horse. It makes the color pop out at you.

Beautiful view of the Workhorse.
Excelent composition and details.
Hey, how does it feel to be the proud and soul user of the Fuji? LOL
