Great shot Leon, good composition with the tight crop, excellent natural colours and well framed.
Thanks for sharing.

Great shot! It looks sad :(
Good choice of frame and good note.

Wow! I love this one...great eye macro, Leon! This is my favorite kind of photo...Good job! I love the horse's eyelashes! :)

Great job Leon! Perfect shot technically. Too bad the hair was covering the eye partially but it is a great effect.

Hi Leon,

Well done on this capture and details, excellent work.


Beautiful shot, Leon! The eye is centered, but the hair creates a nice composition is two unequal parts. A clever shot!

Very creative way to present this detail of the horse, Leon. I like the colours, the light & the composition. This horse seems to be looking down like he was shy about you taking such a close-up. Well done!

Maybe you could have combed your model's hair first, Leon ;o). A different horse shot, and of course you went for your favourite subject: the eye... that's why I think it's a pity there are some stray hairs over it. It would have been nice if we could have seen your reflection.
But: that's just me nit-picking. I love it as it is. A gentle portrait 'au naturel', as I prefer them. Looks like a beautiful model too.

Nice shot...hard to see in the thumbnail, but I was glad that I opened it up and took a proper look. I like the colours and the subject being just one eye and the blonde hair. Very attractive.

nice shot
like the eye lashes very crisp
nice simple colours
nice crop

Bonjour Léon, Cette photo est vraiment spéciale, j'aime beaucoup ce close up d'un oeil qu'on ne voit pas vraiment mais qu'on devine. Belle netteté et bonne composition...

never thought such a crop in a horse shot,great idea.
