Beautiful, I like the way you separated the rider from the BG, and GRATS on the placing!!

Beautiful clarity, and spot on exposure. I love how they are looking into the early morning fog adding a sense of mystery to the overall photo. Congrats on the good score and placement in this challenge. Good Luck in the next round of the tournament.

I thought this would have done better...I didn't get to see any of the images or vote on any of them...but this should have been higher

I'm hoping to leave comments on as many photo's in this challenge as possible... out of (currently) 1113 images, I gave 90 of them an 8. Your image was one of those 90, placing you well within the top 10% for this challenge.

One of the more unusual shots in the challenge in that it doesn't involve a sunset or a bug macro, but this image really appeals to me. I think it the contrast between the clarity of the horse and rider compared to the smoky haze of dust in the distance. A really nice shot.

Good luck for a strong finish in this challenge.

Very nice shot. It's difficult to make a photo work from the behind perspective like this, but this one, IMO works really well. The natural lighting is great at these angles, and I just love the misty background. Great work.

nice light

Oh, I love this. Love the dusty light. 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/16/2009 11:30:33 PM
I like how the dust/mist in the background separates your subject from the rest of the picture... makes it stand out nicely.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/16/2009 03:10:11 PM
Nice shot. Nice detail and angle.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/15/2009 07:03:26 PM

Nice capture, excellent lighting and DOF.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/15/2009 04:53:38 PM
Is it possible for light to be soft and dramatic at the same time? I think so, that is why I was such a fan of this series when you posted it previously. Great photo!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/15/2009 12:09:26 PM
excellent capture of this moment. nicely done
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/15/2009 11:58:58 AM
Great light in this photo. Horse in sharp focus, nice fog? effect, and good restraint on processing. I would have taken it a little further which would probably ruin the mood here. Sweet!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/15/2009 09:17:24 AM
Coming back to comment...

So peaceful! Love the fogginess, and the feeling of being alone with nature.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/15/2009 09:09:50 AM
Great PP job - love the tone and color of this - keep up the good work
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/15/2009 07:47:55 AM
the outback, love it. This could be in inland Queensland? maybe
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/14/2009 11:17:03 PM
It looks beautiful. I very much like how the rider is riding into the fog, how the horse/rider and grasses in front are so sharp, and the background not.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/14/2009 08:07:43 PM
Going somewhere.

Beautiful misty light, wonderful composition, tells a story.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/14/2009 04:24:27 PM
beautiful tones and lightness. I like the image as it is, but i think i love love it with more space. I know, it would be a different image entirely, but I feel overwhelmed by the size of the figure on comparison to the scene he is in front of. hope that makes sense.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/14/2009 11:39:39 AM
oooo...really like this...excellent color and tones...
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Beautiful capture!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/13/2009 09:53:44 PM
I really like this. There is a haziness to the background that makes the horse and rider stand out.

Good sense of mystery by keeping us from seeing his face
  Photographer found comment helpful.

It's almost if I'm in a movie here. Great light and composition.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/12/2009 06:13:11 PM

Great light in this and great composition
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/12/2009 08:49:22 AM
I like the detail and focus on the horse and rider. The background being low light and misty makes it work nicely together.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 10:02:02 PM
a nice capture. I like the dust/haze that he is riding into.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 09:54:39 PM
Good composition, nice DOF. The tightness of the focus on the subject doesn't leave much to the story though, in my opinion.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 07:02:16 PM
Nice mood.

Nice atmosphere, perhaps in black and white would be even better? 7
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 04:04:32 AM
This really puts me in the moment - beautiful depth, excellent light. I can feel the air - warm but not too hot, and can hear the quiet, but a few bugs, a few birds perhaps. Lovely moment.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Beautiful composition and lighting. This looks like a Judi?
