[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Photo collage, produced in Photoshop while listening to "Mujer contra mujer" by the excelent spanish band "Mecano" and the supreme voice of Ana Torrojas in a closed loop of about 40 times...
All pictures were taken during a photo trip to Ílhavo, same place as this and this ones.
the P.P. work is pretty evident... nothing to add there.
The photo exif information refers to the widest of the images used, the background with the trees and the 2 horses. Then there's the detail of the white horse's head, the barbed wire and the falcon, all separate shots.
Awaitting your comments....

Triple WOW for this photo Emanuel, this is art in it's finest form, a picture saying more than a thousand words, I would add a black frame though it might enhance the feeling of captivity (smile, just my personal oppinion)...well done

Very nice composition, full of emotions. Looking at that white horse, I kind of feel what it thinks and feels and brings tears to my eyes. Well done.

EXCELLENT work of art. I just look and admire and add this to my fave.

Your concept and execution is first class work. I admire you for this. I like the differences in the opacities, and the inclusion of the bird in flight
