I can't offer anything 'helpful' to your photo - it's perfect as I see it. I'm scoring it a 10 and I think it should place in the top 10 for sure but I'm really thinking it will get the Red Ribbon.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/29/2008 11:33:01 AM
Class. Very funny caption and brill photo
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/29/2008 12:19:33 AM
It looks like it's singing! How fun! Great background and lighting too. Very nice, and different.

This challenge has some of the best titles in a long time - this one is perfect. Great shot, too.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/28/2008 09:31:44 AM
LOL! Looks like he's hitting the note.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/28/2008 01:27:01 AM
Top entry in my opinion. Technically great, exposure, color, use of focus, DOF.

Horses are powerful, wild and naturally fiesty/competitive. This captures that wonderfully in an untraditional manner (not running).

Well done. If I were voting it would be a very high score!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/27/2008 07:53:35 PM
Now there's a blue. Vibrant, exquisite, title rocks. 10 for you. Good luck.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/27/2008 12:29:03 PM
LIghting is fabulous! Love how the light shines and picks up all the highlights in the pony's mane and rich color variations of red/gold/brown in the hide. Composition is good for it captures the main subject well and also plays up that pose of the pony in full 'singing' form. Colors are wonderful. Well done; 9.

08/26/2008 02:35:27 PM
Possible winner.. great angle and the sky looks great, as does the horses epression.. the lower third of the shot bothers me though.. I would of preferred this as all sky.. just a minor nitpick though.

....And there it is. THE shot of the challenge. Not only have you mastered colour and light here, but you've gone and given this animal some character with your wide angle perspective, quick thinking and brilliant interpretive title. Doesn't get much better than this. Congratulations in advance.
