This horse, Cabrio, isn't mine, but he's almost a twin to my horse who passed away this past August 2008. I'm dedicating this to my beautiful boy, the best subject I photographed in 2008.

They say timing is everything, so I thank my friend Ritad for getting me reinterested in photography last Dec '07 - just in enough time for me to capture images of my best friend ever who I still miss every day...that's him below:

lovely details in the horse - especially the veins - it does seem a bit close cropped and the fence below seems a bit unnatural (likely due to some over burning)

Good capture! Have you tried it in blac and white? Not that it isn't good now, but look into his/hers eyes and imagine this in B&W. Could be good?
