About the Image(s)

I converter this to B and W in PS, gave it a light sepia look in Silver Efex. I gave it a tight crop to emphasize the riderless horse.

1/25, 3.8, Iso 1600, 77 mm

Great job here, Jen. Scenes like this are so busy, and you've managed to avoid all the clutter and present a nice clean compelling composition. I love the way it's bordered at the top, with just a bit of the riders showing, and the way the vignette directs the light to your subject horse. If only we could have seen the faces of the riders. Very nice.   Posted: 11/11/2019 10:49:06

Nicely done, Jen. You have achieved a very moving photograph. One nit pick. There seems to be part of another horse and rider on the left edge. I would cone it out aand give the remaining horse and rider a little room   Posted: 11/11/2019 12:05:07

Jen - I've never been to a show like this, so am unfamiliar with them. I'm afraid I don't understand the "farewell" story here or the implication of the riderless horse! Sorry! We can't see the faces of the two mail riders.

So it's not doing anything for me. I have to be missing something!   Posted: 11/13/2019 10:49:47
