Oh Laurie!!!! This photo was yours??? It's one of my favorite photos of all time! I know 6.4 is a good score -- but I'm crushed that this one didn't win a ribbon and earn a score in the 7's! If you made a print of this, I would buy it -- seriously -- (why don't you do that)?????? Not only would I then have an original from my friend, but I would be proud to own one of my favorite photos EVER!!!!!

WTG, Laurie! What a beautiful image, just perfect.

Beautifully composed; and the browns and whites (lines, masses, textures)work really well. (Not sure I agree with posthumous, but it would be interesting to see it without grain).

I love this shot, and had no idea this was yours Laurie.
It is so emotional, and so very special.
I wish it was on the front page at least, as it so deserved it.....

Very nice grain, it is very natural looking, unlike the noise in a lot of the other images. I like the muted colors.

The potential is there, nice shot. There is something that doesn't realy work in the composition of the picture, is it to cropped, would it bean better with a little bit of "air" on the right side of the horse? The main object is dead center in the picture, rule of thirds might have helped.

Really cool shot. You displayed the concpet well and the grain really adds a nice touch to the shot.

This is gorgeous. Your metering is just sensational. 10.

I really like the lighting and soft tones on this entry. The noise adds so much nice softness to the image. The only thing that is a very slight issue to me is the noise seems to have some green and pink in it. This is especially noticable on the horses neck.

the grain seems like an afterthought. Lovely photo, though. 6

So sweet and what splendid surroundings, love this!

I like this shot and think the grain works really well here. For me, the crop is a little tight on the right side. Good job!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Very painterly...I can't help thinking...sort of a cross between a Doolittle and a Rockwell. Very nice, I like this!

Love it! Great moment captured!

Nice! You did a good job on this one!

Ohmy. ..this photo is AWESOME!! From what I've seen so far, if this doesn't win a blue ribbon, then it is a great injustice! The subject. The composition. The processing. Everything is flawlessly perfect. And it is a photo that is truly enhanced by the grainy effect! This one's going straight to my favorites too! 10
