Originally I was trying to frame the horse using the sunset illuminated field grass, but the horse wouldn't cooperate and get in the correct location! :-}

I was pretty much just following the last bits of sunlight when I took this shot. Liked the way the light was playing on the foreground grass, the fence & gate, and the background area as well. Slipped on the aperture dial and must have bumped it up a notch ... could have blurred the front grass a little more at 5.6. The lens really compressed the distance as there's probably 30 feet or more from the grass to the gate. I'd REALLY like to try this with my 200/2.8 (if the conditions permit I may try Tuesday night). Otherwise, this is the one I putting in for now.

Awesome! A77 on the front page. I really liked this (gave it an 8 in voting) as the golden sunlight really contrasts with all the wood.

Great light and composition. The best approach to the theme. Blue ribbon, IMO.
