[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
One of the pics of the wild horses that roam in the Kaapschoop area. The mare on the left is heavily pregnant, and the last time I saw her (about a week ago), she was still large. With winter coming up, I hope they have a warm place to keep the foal...

I was amazed when I stumbled on this watering hole of theirs. I'd seen them across an open field and went after them to take photos. I got distracted and was very surprised when I bumped into this place. Took lots of shots - posted some to TE.

I thought this one looked a bit like the wild west, so I made it look aged with a sepia tone. Added a border. Nothing much else done, other than running through NI. Hope you like it.

It does a little bit to the yellow green tone than sepia. The frame distract a bit. Having said that, I like the compo though. It seems to be very clear and sharp on its original too.

Good shot overall.

Composition of this photo is very good, first I love the placement of the rocks, and also the way they act as a frame for the picture, second I love the way the horses are spread out, great. The focus and detail of the picture seem good and clean. The *(yellow) sepia works well, you can if you want add a little noise to the photo, just to add that little bit extra for the aged look, having said that, Judy this is an excellent and well presented shot, thanks.

Beautiful photo Judy. I like horses and this wild horses are very very beautiful. Well done.

I love this great composition, but find the sepia tone a little too "yellow". Would love to see the original in colour, could you post it as a workshop please?
The subjects are so natural at their watering place - it is nice to see these animals in the "wild". Thanks
PS. I did a workshop changing the colours a little.

This is sepia taken to the extreme, Judy! But it seems to suit the image nicely and gives it an artistic, warm glow.

Judy, I liked the yellow overtone very much ..I think is suits the idea and title..I am a little unsure about the frame only...It would be really great to have the burnt out effect on the framing maybe..(although I don't know how to make it myself..maybe you do:)

I liked it very much...

Personally, I like this excess of yellow and I find the very pleasant composition. Excellent.

Personnellement, j'aime cet excès de jaune et je trouve la composition très plaisante. Excellent.

Judy,
Fine capture! I like the yellow-tineted sepia here. I have never seen this tint before on an image. It seems very original. I think you got the composition right and left some good notes. Good job,
Scott
