when shooting horses and other large animals use a longer focal length to keep the distortion from being so bad on the animal.
this is a nice composition but the horse is so deformed by the short lens it hurts this image a lot. there is a place for shorty lenses on horses but not when the horse is part of a landscape. Gorgeous place to shoot! and lovely image otherwise.

Cute POV. The mane on his/her forehead is adorable and you got a nice feeling of movement in the clouds.

I'd like him positioned a little differently in relation to the mountainous bit in the background; I think what's bugging me is all the different backgrounds for his head.

Though the perspective is wonky due to the use of an ultra wide angle lens, I like it. Good drama in the sky too. The horse may be taking up a bit too much space though, as it competes too much with the barn (red roof) and the sky for attention.

Great shot and framing. Burning in the sky is decent, not too over the top. Image is well composed and angle is creative. Good Luck. 7.
