Can't believe I'm actually entering this challenge but here goes.

The models are my friend Judy and her QH, Odie. The setting is the barn where she first met Odie and became the only person to take an interest in this sweet, elderly gelding (he is 20). Sadly the barn is all but closed completely down now, and apart from one other boarder and his horse, they are the only ones left.

The essence of you. I love seeing the horse bathed in light. The glow on the stables is a nice lead in to your subject.

Fabulous! Reminds me (and gives me a wonderful feeling... THANKS BUNCHES) of the very first time I took my new lens out... and got my highest score ever... it was over an 8... I thought all week that my eyes were wrong and it was a 6.xx... Ha! but rollover didn't happen on time... and it sank to 7.9892. I'd never even had a 7... so was thrilled. :D

This is ... lovely. I wish the woman weren't so hit with light... so we could see her expression as she gives love.

This is truly gorgeous. So many people have problems with blown areas, but I think it adds so much to this image. 9 from me!

Excellent leading lines and I like your off center composition. I'm wondering if you should have left more image on top. Your crop seems a little tight but I don't know what's up there. Nice!
