Do I think this is a great photo?

Nope. But, I think it's funny!

Yeah... so... I know it's not level. I saw the clouds, ran to ask Hubby if he would change clothes and saddle up on his afternoon off. I'd already pounded the tool into the ground, but forgot that it was Minimal Editing. So, I ran back in.

I don't think I've ever cleaned my sensor as quickly as I did. (I HATE cleaning my sensor. Scares me. It's not perfect, but much better than it was.)

Anyway, Hubby changed and saddled up in well... perhaps a nano-second. (He's SO good to me!) Then, I was basically standing on my head in the hard clay, my bracing elbow STILL hurts from the pressure... the horse and rider kept putting the horse's head "in" the teeth of the tool... so I'd adjust my "stance" while balancing on my head.

I wish the horse and rider were a bit closer. They had been a few frames earlier, but I thought this looked more like they'd just roped themselves a tool. *grin*

This is a new horse for Hubby... they don't know each other very well yet and the trust thing is not quite established, so modeling was not easy.

Still, I like it.

I hope folks know what the Lasso Tool is. I use it often... well... the Magnetic Lasso... It's quite handy. Try it! You'll like it!

Exceptionally uninhibited - I should have guessed from your hubby but thought instead some western cowboy had posted it. Quite a challenge for minimal editing. How many exposures to get an optimal one?

She's a beauty! The horse. The tool is a bit tired. :-) One of my favorites in the challenge - quite clever and very entertaining!
