[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
If you've spent any time with horses, you know that they "say hello" by smelling your breath. This Morgan mare and her foal had just been turned out in a pasture for a romp, and the mare did her maternal job of reconnecting with her filly on a regular basis.

I experimented with PS on this shot. Cloning to eliminate some distractions, bluring, rendered lighting to accentuate their contact with each other, used Neat Image.

So cute and full of feelings.
I like the central light that makes an accent on the horses.
Good PP.

Belle photo de famille....sympatique..

Nice and tender shot. I like the softening around the edges of the photo it gives more intimacy of the mother and the child. Beautifull colors, very calm. I would even say that the green of the leafs is a little disturbing under the mother horse.
