Horse Photo Competition 3 2016 : Entry Number 13

Judges Comment

What a spectacular image, and an instant favorite. The use of a wide-angle gives us a wonderful wide landscape view with a full sky and leading lines on beach. One suggestion: I might have corrected the lens curve in post so that the horizon line was straight. But this is a great image ... good white balance, wonderful natural stance. Great job! Congrats! ~ illona

Oh wow, thank you so much. This photo shows my icelandic mare Halla and my all time model. We were at the Baltic Sea for a walk with some friends and I think she enjoyed this liberty walk very much. The curves in the sand were so inspiring for this shot. I love this never ending sky and her calm and familiar expression. We are from Germany and the picture was taken with my Canon 5D Mark III and a Canon 16-35mm.
