Thanks for all the wonderful comments. This is one of my favorite shots and is now hanging on my wall. To finish in the top 100 of this challenge was great. Beautiful images to compete with. And to the one voter that gave this a "1", get over yourself.

I think the 1&3&4 voters should get over themselfs (I got some too... very frustrating). This was one of my top picks. Good job.

I like the contrast of the warm tones of the horse against the snow. I am partial to horses, of course, but he (she?) is a beauty.

sorry, but in my opinion, you've ruined a perfectly beautiful photograph with your processing. i imagine this may be gushed over by some, but for me, this is what i would expect to see printed on velvet, being sold in a rural flea market...and i don't think it really needs to be that way. the composition and capture are excellent. oh well, to each their own.

Excellent work. Love the strong rust tones framed by white. Well done!

This is awesome. At first glance, I wasn't crazy about the effect of what appears to be post processing, but, I think the awkwardness of color/lighting (for lack of a better word) on the horse's belly and the unevenness of the lighting really helps to emphasize the harshness of the weather. Good work.

I initially thought the red hue of this photo is a bit much. After going back and reviewing the scores I gave out, this photo actually stood out more.
I went back to this shot quite a few times and the more I look at it the more I really like it. I liked the composition a lot. This is one of those photos that actually grows on you as you look at it. The red hue, which was my initial beef, was the feature that gives the photo character.

That horse looks almost as though he has a little wood-burning stove in his belly, it's glowing so red.

I love this photo. It looks like a Christmas card. I hope the horse wasn't too miserable -- and had a place to get out of the cold.

Beautifully done!

Easily one of the most striking horse portraits I've seen on this site. I LOVE the snow's effect on this composition, and the cropping and positioning of the subject is perfect.
