I know this shot sucked...it was done at last minute; during a snowstorm, plus I cut off the ears in the original shot, didn't crop them...sometimes I never learn.

Its nice to see that not all of the horse is in the picture! I know you have gotten comments on having the ears cutoff (I got the same comments), but I think what you are trying to capture here doesn't require the whole horse!!!

Out of focus, looks like a snap shot. Cute title though.

Would be a great shot if the horse's head were not cut out.

It's cropped in the wrong place. I would have liked to see more of his face.

nice, probably a little too tight in the crop, but there's a good atmosphere about the shot...nice shot...hope this does well for you

I like tight crops, but I think seeing the ears would bring more of the focus to the horse's face.

I think you needed to back up and take this picture. By cutting of the top of the horses head, it sort of ruins this picture in my opinion.

It is a little bit odd crop, Why dit you do it like this?

Interesting but the crop doesn't seem right on this horse ... he needs the rest of his head .. or at least some ears :)

I love the image of the horse playing in the snow, I just wish I could see more of it.
