ah! I am editing this from futureshop right now, I ain't at home and got no internet connection where I'm visiting. :-)
so maybe there aint much rain in it, and I'll get "it's more about the horse than the rain" comments
Which, of course I agree.
I wanted to show 'the food chain' you know, the water feeds the grass, the grass feeds the horse and the horse feeds the troll.

Congrats on your top 10!
This is a great photo. Not the blunt, in-your-face rain, but still rain all over!

wooaaah...hold on...does this mean you can do other things?

didn't expect this was yours. gave you a 9. can't always get 10's. better luck next time.

i'd like slightly more pastel colors next time.

Like I've said MANY times before, I hate your guts, mah boy. ;)

Great shot! I like how this is so different from all the usual pretty-little-horsey shots.

the angle makes this outstanding.
08/21/2005 11:32:03 PM
This is a really nice pic. I do feel that it looks a bit overprocessed, though. I also think you could have revealed more detail in the horse, it is a bit dark.

It doesn't get much better than this...10

Horse must have been wondering what you were doing. Just a bit dark. You can tell it rained and can see some small drops hit the water. Like the reflection.

nice dramatic colors
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Looks like Pedro's horse, like how you got close to the ground and just enough ripples in the puddle to tell it's raining. bumping up
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/18/2005 08:46:27 PM
I think I might have liked the image better if you cropped out the second horse in teh background. Also, it needed a little brightening up.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Strong image; different and intersting composition, but which actually follows all the rules one could wish for. Love the colour - especially the vibrant green - though one might wish for more detail in the horse's face perhaps, for all that it isn't the real subject, it would add depth (as if it were lacking much depth anyhow - but there could be more, no?)

Nice contrast
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/18/2005 07:00:07 AM
Interesting perspective, I like the distortion the wide angle lense creates here, as well as the low angle. The fence line helps lead the eye to the subject and there are actual rain drops falling into the puddle. Good job adding an interesting element to this challenge.

i'm a sucker for horses.... 9 for you!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/17/2005 11:55:11 AM
Really nice I wish I could see just a little bit of detail on the horse's face, but that could also possible be a monitor calibration issue too.

great picture. the colors are great!!!

Unusual point of view. Good colors too.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/16/2005 10:27:55 PM
Outstanding in every way. The reflection, the horses and that fence that leads away from the lovely foregound past the horses and into the sky. 10

for me it is a 8
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/16/2005 07:59:17 AM
Very nice. To me it looks a little too smooth. I think it might be improved by cropping out the left horse. Get a high score nonetheless.

this is beautiful.....

Great over-all tone.

reminds me of one of Pedro's shots from a while back. nice mood and colors. 8

The main horse is a little under exposed, a little dodging might have really helped here but a great shot none the less.
