Horses in Twente


Joergen115 was right the crop was to tight. Changed it and now the white horse has more grass in front of him. Thanks for your honest critique Jorgen!

Last Saturday I met my four sisters and my two brothers in my town of birth and had a great day together. We rented a coach which was propelled by two beautiful Frisian horses and drove through the countryside which I know so well. During the journey I observed these three horses. The platform from which I took this picture wasn't very steady those horse can make quite some speed.. ..that's the reason I selected a reasonable high shutter speed.

Anyway this is a typical Twents landscape and I was happy with those wonderful cloudscapes.

PP work, Shot in RAW adjusted contrast and brightness. Converted to JPEG, resized and sharpened and finally add frame.

Good Morning Hans,

A pleasing subject, full of tranquility to calm the troubled brow.
Three is good for composition and whereas, I would normally like them placed together, in this situation, it encourages the eyes to scan the whole scene.
Possibly a crop of the sky would improve the composition.

Have a good day,
Bev :-)

wonderfully bucolic landscape from a master photographer. Janos

hi bro.
not your best image to date.
nice composition but lacks the 'Hans' magic touch.
i'm glad to see that, even you, are human.

Hi Hans,
I tend to agree with Brian here. Also on this image I see this small light edge like the one we talked about in a previous picture.
I really believe that somewhere, something is going wrong...
Could it be that the lens is the cause of this problem?
Maybe there are som reviews on the internet about it, where you can read about possible defects and flaws.......
You never know!


Hoi Hans,

Een mooie tukkerse foto. Ik heb me maar even bemoeit met het gesprek tussen jou en Anneke, omdat ik precies weet waar het mis gaat. Misschien is het tijd om ff terug te gaan naar de basis en niet te veel willen doen in je PP werk. En, met dit soort foto's is het beter om even de tijd te nemen, je statief op te zetten en twee belichtingen te nemen. Dit levert een beter resultaat op.......tijd om samen op pad te gaan.


Horses in Thirds! This reminds me of some photos I took in the Hill Country of Texas a while back! I love the greens in this, they are glowing! Wishing for the horses to be closer together, so the crop would be tighter! They didn't cooperate with you eh? That is what a whip is for! Good to be back Hansie!
