This photo is FABULOUS! Beautiful in color, but the black and white adds even more magic to it. Congratulations on the top spot with this deserving photography!

For having such premium equipment this pic looks pretty soft and I really don't consider it to be a good BW conversion. Absolutely amazing subject matter though.

awesome shot and congrats on the blue! The b/w version I think has a lot more impact as a photo, in addition to being perfect for this challenge.

I only voted on a few images in this challenge, and I guess i didn't get to this one. Absolutely amazing!!! An obvious choice for the blue, and going directly into my faves. Congratulations!

Breathtaking. Posthumous Yellow Ribbon, even though I know it's likely to get one of them regular ribbons.

That is absolutely unbelievable. Amazing shot. It definitely conveys the temperature of color, even though there is no hue. Great shot.

What a find. Great scenery. As much as I enjoy the scene and compostion, it could be stronger if the horses were not dead center in the bottom of the image. I'll be interested to read the retails of PP after voting, as the sky has some odd characteristics that I can't resolve particularly on the right of the rainbow. Still a good find.

Beautiful.......

How lucky would you have to be to get a rainbow show up exactly in the 'color in BW' challenge (unless you changed the camera date to future and took it in advance.. J/K;-).

Beautiful! I love how the focus drifts away to the right... and the horses (I am hoping .. no.. I want them to be exactly 7 to rhyme with the rainbow so I am not even counting them:-) Camera angle could probably have been more oblique (looking up). I wonder if a more sharp pasture would help more. Excellent find anyways!

Great Capture. Things obviously went right for you to get this. Hard to stage these and get the horses there when the rainbow is there. Exceptional shot and stands alone (outside of the challenge topic) as a great photo, as well as meets the challenge. Would love to see the original for this.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/24/2008 12:38:36 AM
Wow. I would only take the contrast down a notch because the detail is lost on the darkest horse, but the picture and the concept are stunning. It takes your breath away. 9
