This one is from the archives, liked the pose here and the blooming trees in the background, these horses were used for the heavier work on the farm in the past , picture taken in Hengelhoef last april..

cropped,sharpend and boosted the saturation 16%.

This is a very beautiful horse, The composition is excellent, with the great contrast between the horse and the background, the colours are excellent so is the sharpness. Great shot. TFS

Hi Leon,

This is nice! i like the horse and the BG.

Well done.


Very good; the horse is too heavy in format and strength in this tiny cute garden. This contrast makes the picture attractive; also the dark almost silhouette-like colouring of the horse.
Beautiful picture; every detail has its own beauty; all together it's a great composition.
Thanks Leon

schitterende foto van een prachtig paard.

A very lovely Spring photo Leon. The greens of the grass and the tree blossoms are just perfect. It is a beautiful horse and standing in a great pose, you have captured him just right. Is this called a Percheron? It looks something like that kind to me. Anyway, whatever he is - you have a great shot of him. Well done

Lovely shot, majestic animal, captured in a masterful way. Great exposure, details and presentation.

Good composition and saturated colours. Love the colour of the grass.

Gosh, I love these horses, Leon! They look like they're wearing those fringed boots that cheerleaders wear, which makes the shot humorous to me! :)

This shot also is a good illustration of where the concept of "horsepower" came from! Wow! Beautiful background, too.

Gayle :)

So glad you found this one Leon. Well composed, lovely rich colours and that beautiful animal. We still have a few farmers in Australia who keep a team of horses for some of the work on the farms. TFS
PS many thanks for the comment on my 'Willow'

The "Brabants trekmeisje" really stands out here, Leon... Excellent idea to boost the saturation, compo looks great too.
Beautiful animal.

wonderful scenery for this brabanšon

What a nice image, I'm looking forward to spring for sure! Is this a Clydesdale horse? The size of it is massive and I love the hair above the hooves. Well done, very peaceful photo.


Great Horse composition
like a UK horse called a Suffolk Punch used for heavy farmwork
nice photograph
PP and framing are all good

I love all horses, and particularly draft horses. This one looks fantastic. i love his intense dark color and his pose. The BG is very nice too, with those trees in blossom. Nice sharp details too and great composition. Very well done !

the pose is nice. The framing and text are good too.
