-6/2/10 Well I see that folks aren't loving this photo; no matter, I ADORE IT! After voting it's gonna be printed and framed and hung, not only in my home, but in the home of a prominent framer in our area! I'm very excited as it may also be hung in his office (he is also an oral surgeon).
For those who commented on the processing.....it wasn't so much the processing as it was the overexosure upon pressing the shutter release....here's the orginial

I like this image, a little high-key never hurt anyone! Nice horse too.

I think that this did not do nearly as well as it deserved. Funny enough, I also accidentally over-exposed this month and liked it so much that I put it into the FS also. Great shots can come from accidents - don't let the voters put you off trying this sort of stuff! Sometimes Often they have little taste...

Didn't vote on this one, but I still think it's a wonderful image!

I really like the processing on this. I hope you're not getting beat up on this one. Nice job.

What did you smoke before bed?

As a high-key image I guess this works pretty well... Have I ever mentioned that I rarely appreciate high-key images??

So, I'm on a campaign of appreciation, I'm trying to really vote based on merit, regardless of my taste (well, maybe a bit of a bonus for aesthetics...).. In any case, last week you would have gotten a 3 for this, maybe a 2.. This week? hmm.. So hard. I guess it's nice for what you were trying to do, and it's not overall displeasing.. So... I guess I'll be generous, as I'm sure many others won't be.... You get a 7 on this.

As a side note, have you looked into the printing on aluminum? They say it's best with high-key images, and since you're dreaming about horses, clearly you love them, so this image might be a nice print on aluminum...

Too high key - the shape of your main subject is lost in the wash out.

Seems to be an over-contrasted otherwise plain picture of a horse. The processing has almost become the subject.

i like that the horse is intently looking at us - but i am not sold at all on the processing

It is a good dreamy effect, but I don't really care for the overall photo (sorry!).
