Wow. First Blue, a PB and first entry over 7! What a thrill to see this!

This photo was taken a the Return to Freedom Sanctuary Wild Horse Preservation and Sanctuary in Lompoc, CA.

Several hundred acres, several hundred wild horses allowed to live in relative safety and comfort. They offer monthly photo workshops/tours - one in the early a.m., one in the late afternoon. An amazing experience!

Great shot, love the dustup! The bg is so freaky, with the horse being on level ground the perspective beyond looks so off. I imagine the view beyond is of a valley.

Either way grats on the trifecta of a score over 7, new PB and a blue!

Pretty image, but seems to me to be a shoe-horn for the challenge. Just my two cents.

Interesting that this is portrait not landscape but I like how it gives a sense of perspective. Love the choices in toning and dof. Lovely shot overall. 8
