[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
These horses (that actually were black and white) were in a pasture near my hometown and I had to stop and visit them. I think horses are majestic creatures! The lighting was very harsh (midday) but I managed to salvage this shot using virtual photographer's "flashback" filter and by doing some contrast and levels adjustments. I like the way it turned out, contrast and all.

a nice picture! If the bottom more longer, must be perfect captured.

I'm surprised you haven't got anymore points.

This is a fantastic shot, You worked the B.W. well here. This is a good lesson in B.W.

So what, you missed a little bit of the hooves. You deserve better recognition.

A million thumbs up!!!!!!

Mike <>< check out the workshop

A bit small but superb anyway.

Your shot has this something Laurie... I guess its the dreamy feel that it has about it. BW is excellent for this pic. It would have been nice though if the full legs of the front horse were in the picture. But I like this photo!

I like repeating theme of two horses - white and black. PP is wonderful. Your photo looks very smooth and shadows play perfectly. Congratulations.

I would like to know something about your equipement. P.

Hard to go wrong with horses - they are so photogenic.
This is a great composition, and you made good use of the B & W conversion and contrast levels.

Nice angle! But I don't like the position of the black horse, maybe you can't wait for her move at that time.
To avoid highly contrast between dark and light, I suggest you 1)use some real filter before your lens and 2)reduce proper EV.

Excelente fotografia.
