I'm not being critical because this is a great photo and is teriffic use of the fisheye lens, but for those of us who enjoy airline photography (i.e. airliners.net) this kind of technique is quite often used with similar results. But I still like what you've done.

Phrase reminds me of the novel "Brave New World." Nice photo! I'm impressed that you were able to get such great contrast and saturated colors with no editing other that cropping and resize. Congrats!
07/19/2006 12:24:32 AM
This was definately my pick to "WIN" this challenge, as it not only made me laugh, but was a great example of perspective.
I only voted and commented on this image, about ten minutes to rollover, and gave you a "10". Congratulations on your "yellow" ribbon.

lol, well its a little distorted (as you know), and I can't see the teeth to tell its age/health. But it certainly is a unique perspective. :)

07/16/2006 04:30:32 PM
Very funny shot! Nice to see that all is not serious an boring here at dpc :)
Good use of the fisheye.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/16/2006 12:41:04 PM
GREAT angle! And you kept the DOF deep enough that the horse's body draws you into the distance instead of becoming part of a flat background.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/15/2006 08:22:12 PM
I know this photo deserves higher marks but it's just too strange!

07/14/2006 05:42:41 PM
This is just tooooooo good. I love the fisheye look. Great composition, great tilt, and just a plain great capture. If you don't get a ribbon on the site, then I'll mail you one! ! ! !
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/14/2006 01:43:36 PM
I gotta say, this is probably the most unflattering use of a wide angle lens to a subject I have ever seen and the subject isn´t even human! Man that horse looks wierd, makes me wonder what the heck was in that coffee I drank this morning, hehe :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/14/2006 05:38:31 AM
Wonderful comic distortion;)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/13/2006 10:44:44 PM
8 - Very good. A more refined crop make this even better in my opinion. Undecided on the 'odd' horizon/tilt, but does work as is. Good sharp eye on the horse.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/13/2006 02:33:43 PM
That's messed up, man!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/13/2006 12:03:58 PM
That's some pretty good perspective you got there with that fisheye photo, but man that sure makes for one skinny and ugly horse. Great color tones by the way!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/13/2006 10:10:49 AM
GREAT DRAMATIC EFFECTS THIS PICTURE HAS! I like the up close and personal! This picture has a lot of personality and good humor!

07/12/2006 10:38:59 PM
Never seen a horse shot like this. I can't stop looking at it.
Looks like the horse is a mile long and the head would weigh 10 tons.
Brilliant approach - insane and wonderful shot.
