there is something ultimately cool about this. I don't know what it is yet, but I really like it. I think the only improvement would be to lighten their faces just a hair so I can better see them. You're from ky. You must have seen a thousand times men gathered at a fence, shooting the crap, watching cars drive by? Horses do it too, don't they. That's why I love this. :)

I think the composition would have been stronger if you'd shot from a higher angle, to incorporate the horizon, and not have it hidden behind the bar of the fence, and also if you'd levelled the shot so that fence ran straight across the frame.
Nice colour. Like the strong contrast of the fence.

Great colours. A bit of fill flash would bring up the foreground nicely.

Fore ground is to dark for my taste.

I like the wide angle and the colors. The horses are a little too dark, though. If they were completely dark, it might work. The lines of the fence are nice, too.

This looks like Lexington Kentucky, 8

It's a shame the horses are in so much shadow.

The horses are a little too dark ... maybe a little less contrast and more brightness may have helped.

I hope it is not just my screen but the horses are in shadow which distracts me a bit. Like the colours.

I love the colors and lighting on this photo. One thing I would have changed would be the angle. The top rail following the horizon line for almost the entire length of the photo bothers me. if you brought the angle either down or up it would have worked a little better in my opinion. Still, I give it a 7.

The lighting on the horses is soooo dark. It would have been nice to see them lit a bit better.

I think the photo is very good. Great color in the background. I think the horses are a little oo dark. They look blindfolded (which may have been what you were aiming for).
