This is a wire netting statue of a horse and It was fun to watch it grow green from the feet up the last 5 or 6 years. It's standing in a garden not far from where I live. Almost ready now. I couldn't get a better angle, can't just walk into that garden, so my position to take a shot was rather limited.
Problem with resizing from 2560 to 640 is the loss of detail. It just doesn't look as sharp as the original.

Cropping, curves, sharpening. NO use of layers this time.

An interesting picture. The horse blends into the background though, which robs it of impact. Another angle may have helped, perhaps down very low and closer in with a wide angle would have placed at least the horses head against the sky if no other contrasting background could be found. Itís a shame that the rear of the plough has been clipped off.

Wow, are those hops or just ivy? I'm terribly jealous of your growing season. Just getting started here on the East Coast. Like the splashes of red in the photo and the novel subject.
