Challenge: Your Corner of the World II (Advanced Editing IV)
Camera: Canon PowerShot Pro1
Location: Round Rock, Texas
Date: Sep 29, 2005
Galleries: Landscape, Animals
Date Uploaded: Sep 29, 2005

This is the same area from which I took my Destination shot. I don't think it's the same horse though. It is about a mile from our house. I am very suburban and then a mile away is lots with acreage and horses. He looked at me and held the pose. I thought that was so thoughtful of him. LOL

Thanks to all who voted and commented. Some people are purists and don't like the filtration that I adore. That's ok. I loved this shot whether it did well or not. I have a similar shot I'm going to put in my portfolio tomorrow.
Cropped, applied gothic glow, adjusted single saturation of red, adjusted curves.

Oh my goodness, you know, I don't think I ever took a good look at this before! I absolutely love it - your processing is dreamy!

What a beautifully serene shot. Great lighting and colors and you've captured the horse in a great pose. Looks like you've added just bit of a soft glow and I think it's very effective here.

What a pleasing photo! I enjoy shooting scenes like this too, but don't have the software to do the magic after the capture. Thanks for posting it.

Wow, gothic glow, I have to look into that. It might be even better with a slight crop as long as it didn't interfere with the dreamy quality. Nice.

I love the dreamy mood you achieved in this shot, it really stands out from the common horse picture. Congratulations!!

I'm a sucker for a good dreamy kind of post processing, and this shot works really well with it. The curves of the horse and the lines of the tree are really well seen through the glow, and the tree frames the horse really well. The left side of the frame, though, seems kind of empty. Theres no tree and no horse, and those seem to be the main focus of the shot. I think with a little tighter crop this would be absolutly perfect!

I love your work, it seems to have a Tim Burton quality to it. I mean that in the best of ways.

Enchanting. Would you mind telling me what you did to achieve this almost mystical glow?
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Nice placing and BEAUTIFUL picture! You captured the mood very well!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/13/2005 05:23:25 AM
And lookie there...a horse from you! Exceptionally nice one too. I love the Gaussian filter myself, especially with "soft light"
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/12/2005 08:43:46 PM
great placing..Im so happy this did well, Im a big fan of horses, and I envy you for living around them. This horse looks great, although frail and the smooth tone to the photo always looks great with grass and trees.

I didn't vote in this challenge, but this is a beautiful capture. I love the gothic glow. I don't think PSP has the option (darn). I've admired the effect in many a photo. Anyway, wow!

I really like this. It's got a great "feel" to it. It was super nice of that horse to hold the pose for you, but even nicer of you to photograph it and share it. Congratulations on the 13th place finish.

I like this but I went to get my glasses to see if it was in focus. Yes,k it is, but something about it makes me feel like it is not. Weird, perhaps it is my computer.

Dodging/burning a tad overdone? Especially in the top corners.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/07/2005 10:57:19 AM
Excellent! I love the dreamy effect and the way the branches of the trees are hovering over the horse. Fairy Tale for sure. 10.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/06/2005 04:23:21 PM
too processed for my taste
10/05/2005 09:10:28 PM
This isn't a bad shot but it feels very over-processed to me...I think it's the colors in the foreground that all seem to run together. Maybe it's just me but it feels like a painting more than a photo. The leaf in the upper right hand corner is pretty distracting, maybe try cropping it out?
10/05/2005 04:26:26 PM
Nice soft effect but not sure about the composition.
