About the Image(s)

I shot this image in November 2014 with my Canon Power Shot SX10IS when I visited a farm with my photography club. We focused on taking images of horses standing still or in action. My challenge for this image was difficulty getting close to this horse; shooting between the rails of the corral. Post-editing required a delicate touch to straighten. I also corrected some distractions and decided to leave the eye alone.

Nice one Rusty. I went for a square crop & ran it through super sharp filter in Luminar 4   Posted: 06/18/2022 12:29:06

Great seeing for this image. I really like the contrast of textures between the wood and the horse hair.   Posted: 06/18/2022 21:09:00

Love the contrast between the face of the horse and the light wood. It's always great to have a clear view of an eye, which helps us content with the subject.

Because the eye is so important, I feel it needs more prominence in the image. Miriam improved upon it, but the square crop still didn't give the eye the impact, so I tried a vertical crop. Thoughts?   Posted: 06/19/2022 17:13:31

I agree that the eye needs more importance. I would crop out the fenced andthe bottom to the outer edge of the eye lid.   Posted: 06/20/2022 12:28:57

Like the version from Tom to light up the eyes. It brings more connections between the horse and phtographyer.   Posted: 06/22/2022 15:17:26

I love the texture of the hair and the liquidity of the eye. Can we remove the reflection of the photographer ??   Posted: 06/22/2022 17:18:40
