Horse Photo Competition 3 2016 : Entry Number 14

Judges Comment

What a beautiful image. The framing of the tree trunk on the left and the branches reaching in on the right keep the viewer's eye in frame and directly on our subject. The detail of the breath vapor and low sun catching the fuzz of the horse's winter coat add to the feeling of the cold morning. Wonderfully done! ~ illona

Hi my name is Eric and im from the Netherlands! Thanks to the judges for making this picture Mark Of Excellence! This picture was taken in January early in the morning, with the sun low in the sky just touching the back of the horse so it greats a nice rim light! The shot was just perfect with the eyes of the horse closed and breath vapor! It almost looks like the horse is in total serene with her or his environment! Camera Canon 7D with the 70-200mm f2.8 II Post processing all done in LR cc some straighten, color corrections, contrast and sharpening... Kind regards Eric
