Great photo. I like what your saying, maybe something like "Pretty Ugly" Would have conveyed it more. The wet fur works well :D

Amazingly good photo! Good composition and color. Funny! The weeds in the background are a little distracting but I dont think it hurts the picture. Great one!

Made me laugh and smile. I like this "Awfully Pretty." Great capture of the moment, good composition, etc. Hope it does as well as awfully pretty can.

Great capture! Those teeth! And the little chin hairs! LOL. Wish the background looked a little less blown out.

HOW on earth do you get that horse to DO that?! Is this the same animal that did so well in another fairly recent challenge? I've got the last one flagged as a favorite...hmmm, should go take a peek. :D

I think you did a nice job of getting some pretty deep DOF here and keeping a good portion of the horse in focus. Also a good choice to let the background blowout...it works just fine.

Good luck in the challenge.

I'd say Pretty Awful ;P
Nevertheless, a nice capture with very good contrast.

This is more like "pretty awful". But that doesn't mean I don't like the shot.
