What can I say, it was a natural... Just hope people know what a snaffel is... This'll either be a hit or miss

870, 864 < reminder for me.. LOL I shot diff focus points and combined the imanges in layers, layer mask hide then revealed the 864 bit imange... cloned out the dental floss holding the copper bit, roated and cropped,burned down a highlight in the background, took back into raw and raised the oranges back to ps5 selected the mouth piece of the 1st bit and desat a touch to get the orage glow put on it in raw. resized and unsharp mask

Well I should've stuck with Meow... I was afraid non-horsey people wouldn't get this.. A Snaffel is a type of bit with a broken mouth piece. A bit is what you use to drive a horse.. LOL

Shame about the creased material in the bottom right of the shot, bothers my eye a bit. Not a very interesting shot for me, I can't quite see what your subject is supposed to be and I don't see a connection with the username. Focus on the subject is Ok but overall not a high scorer for me.

Well, you learn something new every day. I never would have guessed at the meaning of snaffle. But this helps me understand your photo: //www.thefreedictionary.com/snaffles
