A gorgeous capture of rural America. I really like the way the evergreens form a V above the horse's back - great composition!

This is really just an amazing shot. I cannot believe it didn't finish higher. Honestly a top 10 shot IMO. Great composition and just the right saturation. Congrats on an incredible capture.

Nice and serene. If it had a horn on it's head you could have put it in the Fairy Tale challenge. (But I suppose that would violate editing rules!)

How did you get the horse to stand in the perfect spot, the angled tree brings this to life

I never tire of shots like this... especially since I'm in the office and I wish I were there right now :-)

This is my favorite image in this challenge, it helps that horses are my passion LOL but in fact the overall color, mood and feel of this shot is beautiful. Good luck. 10

border is far too bold, trees in background look oversharpened. very good color and tones, perfect composition

this is stunning. Maybe a little overshap? Other than that beautiful 9

Very pretty shot. So warm and serene. For me the border draws too much attention away the image and disturbs the pleasant mood of the pic. Great colors and nice composition otherwise. 7

love the lighting here - the highlights on the horse is right on the money

Well composed, but I wish the light was softer. Perhaps a different angle, or a gaussian blur.

This is about as scenic as you can get! It reminds me of the Black Beauty story where they are finally under the apple tree in the end. This is a lovely image....so peaceful. Makes me want to be there!
