A horse's view

A ride with a carriage through the lush green of Twente, the region I was raised. On the right you can observe the ripen corn.

Used fill flash to brighten the horses and show the details of those magnificent animals.

Not much to tell, hardly any PP work except a firm crop, adjustment of levels and curves.

Hi Hans,
An unusual perspective from the coachman's place to show us the horses eye view when they are traveling. Very good color saturation and management of light.
Great light and sharpness.
An intelligent crop enclosed in a complimenting tight white frame.
Well done,

Francis Xavier

Bonjour Hans
J'aime cette prise de vue qui nous donne la sensation d'être dans la calèche dans cette jolie campagne.Merci de nous faire partager ce moment.Catherine

Nice shot Hans - like the pano crop! Difficult contrast of light - the fill flash well used to illuminate the darker colour of the horses! Very sharp too.


Good idea Hans, to get this shot. I like the way you've constructed this with the horses off-center and the rooftop to the right. The colors are lovely - yes, very lush as you said.
What a lovely part of the world!

A great shot, Hans.
I feel to be in the carriage with you!
The flash has lightened the horses well
Love the crop and the the off-centre positioning.

My warmest regards,
Bev :-)

Hi Hans,
I have the feeling to be aboard the carriage, me too!
Clever composition with this panoramic format.
What I like more is the fabulous light you captured, the shine on the horses' croup is especially well rendered!
An alive picture very pleasant to see! Annie
