Icelandic horses late in the evening during mid-July in southern part of Iceland.

Worked on the file first in Lightrooms, cropped the image, brightening it up a bit and made some tonal arrangements, exported the image to PS for levels, curves, hue/saturation before resizing and sharpening. Framed and saved for the web at last.

I like the over sat effect here, it seems to work well with the title. Nice work.

excellent shot with a unique perspective. nice colors just a touch too much yellow IMO, still excellent shot.
Thick frame not too my liking though (no vote)

6 - Nice image, I see the potential cropping dilemma but still, the angle of the land below the mountains distracts me, so even with the horse right at the corner of the frame, a nudge rotate up on the right or a perspective correction probably be better, in my opinion.

oversaturation, doesn't look natural.
