Challenge: Free Study 2013-08 (Advanced Editing VII)
Camera: Canon EOS-550D Rebel T2i
Lens: Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS
Location: Moundhouse Nevada
Date: Aug 21, 2013
Aperture: 5.6
ISO: 400
Shutter: 1/400
Date Uploaded: Aug 30, 2013

This mustang is the lead male to one of the many herds of mustangs I photograph. This fella is by far the largest mustang I have come across to date. He is so muscular and powerful having no problems letting me know he was the boss and I needed to watch how close I come.

I have to say that it was hard just editing this photo because I would laugh and giggle every time I looked at this stallions face.

I'm super happy, this is my first ribbon and want to thank everyone for the great comments and of course their votes. I hope that this photo has made your day a little happier!

Yep, yawning horses are funny...and this shot reminds me of an almost identical angle on another bay mustang with a big cresty neck, though by the time I was working with them, Twilight was a gelding and a little less wild Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_831294.jpg

Congrats on the ribbon and PM, very well deserved! :-)

This one makes me laugh each time I view it - title is right on! Even though it's just a tad soft and I could use a bit more light in the shadows especially the eyes, it's my favorite of the Free Study. 10
