This is such a wonderful image. Framing this adorable pony with the two bent trunks is perfect. The rich colors of the leaves and moss contrast with the soft, misty background, and the pony stands out brilliantly in the midst of it all. Nicely done! ~ illona

Thank you very much for the Mark of Excellence! My name is Valentina Goeck and I'm working as a pet photographer, graphic designer and artist. I live in the middle of Germany, but I'm travelling a lot for pet photography, I also love travelling to other countries. I took this picture in an area called Odenwald near Heidelberg. The owner of the pony showed me these special trees so I wanted to integrate them in a picture. I'm using the Canon 5D Mark III. The editing process was quite complex but I really enjoy bringing out the important things in a picture and reduce the others as there was for example a diagonal tree in the backgound which I edited out because it was heavily distracting the view.
