This was shot only 2 hours before voting started. My son, 7 years old, rides this 12 month old unbroken pony around the yard with a halter and rope. They have the same length legs and he just loves her. The pony is well trained in other areas, bowing, laying down, pulling a cart etc.

In most circumstances I would agree with you...but not in this case.

What a funny shot... great fun (at least for the little boy lol) I love it when humor is incorporated into the challenge in such a creative way .. makes you wonder what the story behind the photo is... nicely photographed!

Poor pony! I really like this, only thing is I don't think the wee boy should be smiling and it's cropped a bit tight at the bottom. Otherwise, good work!

Humor that works (for me at any rate) - nice scene. Think this would look a lot better were it shot in nicer light (early morning, sundown). Not voting, just commenting. Good luck.

OMG, he killed it! :) Focus seems a bit soft and maybe a little bit over sharpened, or a tight crop as the diagonals around the child show aliasing and jagged edges. The lighting is pretty harsh as well, although you can't always control that. :)
