The guy in front is four months old. The gray mare is his grandmother.

They're both very sweet and I had a hard time getting even my wide angle lens far enough away from their inquisitive noses to shoot.

I hope this is HDR to folks... I've not tried to do this before.

I've been watching this great score all week now. Up and down, up and down near my Profile list threshold.

I'm really hoping that it will knock my "frog on a lightbulb" shot off my profile. Come on folks... just beat 6.8414... Just a little bit more... Please? :)

Congrats on your 7th place!!! I wish it would have placed even higher but so glad it made top 10! It's refreshing to see something like this that is wonderful work AND gives a smile, very outside the box!! It's a fabulous, creative capture with pizazz and you just have to look over idiots that low rate consistently in every contest, it's because they are idiots and they know not what they do.

You never cease to amaze me with the way you blend talent and personality. I'm faving this for my wife who broke out laughing when I showed her this. She's not prone to open displays, and she just totally cracked up.

Clever view & title - LOL. Captures the eye like no other! Image seems a bit flat, however--especially for an HDR.

Great composition!

I feel there needs to be more contrast in the shot, the washed-out darks make the brown horse too unrealistic.

09/14/2009 03:37:16 PM
Oh. This is just priceless. Priceless, I tell you. And the title - well that just takes it over the top. I don't care whether this is HDR'd or not (I'll just assume it is, and it's been done perfectly for that matter) but how did you get them so skinny??? Priceless.
