HI from the CC Club,

Stunning shot!!

You have a great focal point in the horse on the left, with the leading lines going down to the rest of the herd. The clouds are dramatic to say the least.

You have two strong leading lines going on here, one is the path the other is the clouds, then the three focal points are the horse, the tree and then the herd. The cloud line leads to the tree, the path to the herd. It is difficult to keep your eye in one spot I am searching all over the shot. A tiny closer crop on the horse on the left, would have made him more of the focal point i believe.

The left horse's body is fairly bright compared to her face, maybe bringing in a little more of that brightness into the face would help as well. Your horizon is a little tilted too.

Your shot, is sharp, clean and clarity is stunning. I have enjoyed looking at this

Even at 6.2+, this shot is underrated. Should have been front page.
