Horse Photo Competition 4 2015 : Entry Number 101

Judges Comment

This dark image is immediately intriguing, with a true story-telling style. The light highlighting the side of the horse's face, allowing him stand out from the shadows, is wonderful, and his distant gaze makes the viewer imagine a nighttime racetrack. Nicely done. ~ illona

Thanks for the 'MOE' This image was taken in Henley Brook, a rural suburb in the picturesque Swan Valley of Perth, Australia. Henley Brook is home to many horse training facilities. I was out photographing one misty winter morning when I stumbled across this solitary horse facing the rising sun. Shot with a Nikon D3X and post processed in PS this image is one of my favourites.
