Macareno, P.R.E. Andalusian Stallion.

This was shot for a magazine add promoting the stallions *ahem* services... It was shot in the late afternoon sun, but I used a fill flash on camera to even out any harsh shadows. Post processing was minimal, just a saturation boost for the background and some selective sharpening around his eyes. I have a similar shot of him showing all of him, but presenting it in this maximum 640 pixel format this version was much more effective with being closer to the action like this. Thanks in advance.

That is some mane! The lighting is pretty good on the horse but I would think it could have been a little more dramatic with a little more vibrant of colors and lighting in the grasses.
