Thanks, Gareth, it was one of those moments when the light is just right and it picked out the colours of those lovely horses.Terrific work Andrea!
So much detail, and those rich colours! Lovely!
Definitely qualifies for the theme....and certainly not a (horse)-shoe-horn!
Thank you very much, Mandy. I agree about the light - it seems to take your eye straight to the horse on the left and then through the scene. They were a gorgeous pair.Definitely fits the theme Andrea. Love how the lighting has emphasised the colouring of the horse on the left. Really lovelly image from you yet again.
I like the image Andrea well done.
Thank you for looking back through the images and commentingCold and Waiting are both brilliant captures. DOF on both is really good. Lighting on the ice cream has a lovely feel to it
Thanks, Bob, they were great subjects and the light broke through at the right moment!Very good shot indeed. Composition is just right, very sharp and colourful.
Thanks, Carl. You're right about the wires, and I can't believe I didn't notice them until I uploaded it and linked it here. You'll be pleased to know I have now gone back and got rid of them, and I'll probably have to do it on quite a few images from the event as they ran right over the fieldLovely image Andrea, nicely framed and fits the theme really well. I might have been tempted to clone out the wires that run through the sky?
Thank you, Stan, they were lovely animals. They have a few similar contests here throughout the winter for horses and various types of tractors - this one was organised by the local Young Farmers - so you may find something similar. As a photographer, it's well worth a trip if there are.A very different take on the theme. I don't even know such competition exists. Two beautiful animals.
Thanks, DomVery nice Andrea, fits the theme well. Good composition, lighting and colours!
Thank you, JoanLovely image and pin sharp with a beautiful background. Well done.
Thanks Dominic, they were a very striking pair.Rough
Love a good horse photo.
Thank you, Peter, glad you like themI really like the waiting the DOF works very well indeed sending the seating oof.
And rough is very good it’s a rough job and a rough life and they have really roughed the ground up
Thanks, Daniel, it was nice to go out and see something differentGreat work Andrea, there seems to be a few similar images floating around for this weeks theme, not this one! Well done!
Thanks, Chris, there was lots going on and I took quite a few images but this is my favourite.Andrea, that’s so nice. The detail, setting just right. Well taken
Thanks, Ian, there were vintage tractors and two other pairs of horses but these girls stole the showLove this image. What beautiful detail to it. Those horses are amazing
Thanks, Tim, I hadn't noticed the ropes but yes they were working hard and it was great to see the effort and skill on show. The horses were the stars but the old tractors were well loved, too.Great Image Andrea. The tension in the ropes show it's an action shot, not staged.
Great colours and not something you see everyday.
Thank you, Roger, I have just replaced last night's version with a re-edited one to correct a white balance and highlights issue. That'll teach me to edit late at night on the laptop! She's still a baby and I was lucky to take this one as she has the knack of moving just as I release the shutterYet another lovely shot, it is simply spot on.
That is a lovely picture Andrea, highlights above the nose are a little bright. Well done on getting a picture like this, I can imagine the boundless energy!
Thank you both for your accurate feedback - I have just replaced last night's version with a re-edited one to try to correct the white balance and highlights issue. That'll teach me to edit late at night on the laptop! We were in a misty plantation with trees just above and grass below and I think all the green light and shade threw things out a bit. She's always on the go but she sat still just long enough for this onelovely portrait of the dog, having two of them I know how hard it is to get a decent picture
if you don't mind me saying the WB looks a little off the blacks look a little blue,
I think this site might be the issue as to losing detail.
You are very kind, Gareth I have re-edited and re-linked a newer version as some of the highlights were blown on her nose and there was a hint of green in her coat from the surroundings - I will try to avoid editing at night on the laptop in future!Completely adorable puppy portrait Andrea!!
Fantastic sharpness and detail....and indeed those eyes are beautiful!
Perfect exposure, and composition too.
Thanks, Dave, I have edited it again and re-linked to the new version so hopefully it's a bit better than the late night version of last nightBeautiful image of your lovely pup Andrea, agree with Allan that the site effects the shot but it`s still a cracker.
Thank you, Bob, she's a lovely model, although rarely sits this stillWhat a beautiful shot!! Enough said.
Thank you, Joan, luckily my husband caught her attention for a few seconds!Lovely photo and lovely dog. She is pin sharp so you did well to get her to stay still. One for the memory books!
Thanks, Tim, I had lost some highlight detail in the original but it's mostly there nowLovely shot Andrea. I missed the original edit, but this looks spot on.
Her eyes are really brown! Really nice image Andrea, missed the first one, but this one looks great.
Fab looking pooch
Looks like it's concentrating on something! Nice looking dog and a great image to go with it.
Thank you all, she (can be) a lovely girl! She's still young and has her moments It was nice to get this rare opportunity for a 'posed' image.Lovely image Andrea, lovely dog too!
Thanks Dominic, I think that makes it all the more special when you do get a nice one - and you have some lovely ones of Ruby.Object
Lovely photo, I feel your pain at getting a dog to pose properly for a good photo. Even though my Ruby is past the days of running around, she won't look at the camera if it's pointed at her.
Thanks very much, IanThat's a great, great image Andrea. The detail you've got into this, with the DOF does your dog so much justice. Love this
Thanks Lee, I do like the background here too. It made the light a bit challenging but I just about got away with itObject - as others have said, simply a lovely portrait. Really detailed. Great colour and background. Really nice.
Thanks, Chris, she was watching my husband's hand as he held her attention and she did get a little biscuit afterwardsAndrea, did you bribe her to sit so still ? Nice image must admit
