Aperture: F5.6

Taken at a paddock on Fort Rucker. It was a pain to get him to look forward, rather than me running back to the camera to take the photo (a remote would've helped!) The sky is quite flat, but I ran out of carrots before things cleared up!
Cropped, adjustments to brightness and contrast.

The fence to the vanishing point is a superb example. The white sky is a disaster - too bad you didn't have a nice crisp blue sky with a couple cumulus clouds. Horse is a nice addition.

Gallop to the end and run wild!

I like the shot but the weight of the horse keeps pulling my eye away from the vanishing point. - 6

nice idea. Over exposed, though.

One of the diffficulties about this challenge, is that this (somewhat obvious) use of the technique also involves the other compositional trick of 'leading lines' - which have the effect of drawing the viewer's eye to their meeting place - in this case, the extreme left edge of your frame, and that partially visible shed. Kind of a shame, because you've captured a moment of light moderately well, even though the hugely blow-out sky is rather an annoyance. There are ways t avoid that, however. A 4

Good VP, nice to see lines going sideways instead of the old Bottom-to-horizon...

One of my top five. Lighting is great, not too bright or dark. Fence line give the illusion of a vanishing point so it meets the challenge and I like that you added a subject that goes naturally with your vanishing point. Beautiful horse.

Less focus on the horse, more focus on the fence would make this pic much better. And maybe a bit too light. But the idea is GREAT.
