Challenge: Country Life II (Advanced Editing IV)

Soooo close to ribboning in both the country life and the city life challenge that it hurts! I'm actually really happy with this score and the photograph too. It was by freak coincidence that I was able to get this shot of country life during the challenge. There isn't a whole lot of it in my immediate vicinity.

What a neat, shaggy little guy. Great capture. Like how he's right up front in the frame. Like the subtle tones throughout. 10

This is a very nice shot. The composition is interesting: there is something interesting to look at in the fore-, middle- and background, the frame is filled very well. The exposure is just right. The title suits the picture very well. 10

Ok, my favorite so far. I say 10 without hesitation. The composition, the leading line, the red, the sky, the post editing. WOW - Love it. I really want to pet that horse.
