Agree with the over-processed comments. I liked the effect created though, especially as it accentuated the 'sleekness' of this fellow.

Thanks for the comments.

Thank you again (also for another chuckle) - just to clarify, I didn't use a wide-angle lens, but yes the perspective/angle was quite sharp, intentionally. A very gentle horse.. equine.

I liked your outake much better! ' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/39850/thumb/297457.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/39850/thumb/297457.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

I scored it a 5. It's a nice image but I don't are much for the PP and I can't help my bias towards the distortion of the equine. The wide angle caused his head to look too big for his body and like he might just fall on his face if not for the fence but it wasn't a big enough distortion to appear as if it was shot that way on purpose.

Edit; fixed link

Hi, I actually liked your entry and gave it a 7. Your original is a great shot in itself but how you pushed the levels of processing make it rather different. For me it works. :)

I'd be curious to see the original before post-processing. It's a little over the top on the whites and highlights for my personal taste, but nice composition.

Don't know what you were trying to accomplish

Nice looking horse. The duotone of this image to me does not do it well.

Beautiful animal but I'm not all that keen on the post processing.

This seems totally over contrasted ...

I love the image but the post editing is too severe for my taste. I'd like to see it a bit less harsh and maybe in sepia or black and white.
