Originally I wanted the little princess to be blowing glitter so that it would be her 'magic' & love that would set the fairy horse free to fly. Didn't work - tried this shot on four different occasions & 3 different locations with various poses. This really is the best one that shows off the Windancer horses the best. Don't know how this will be accepted but after some image processing this one grew on me. To me, the sadness of letting go but knowing the little creature born of wings needs to be free, is palpable.

"Little Wing"
As Sung by Sting

Well, she's walking through the clouds
with a circus mind
that's running wild
Butterflies and zebras and moonbeams
and fairy tales

That's all she ever thinks about...

Riding with the wind

When I'm sad she comes to me
with a thousand smiles
she gives to me free

It's alright, she says,
it's alright
Take anything you want from me,
anything

Fly on, little wing

I think this would have been better if the girl had more light on her and her hair was out of her face a bit. Also, maybe a simpler outfit for her.

The only thing that spoils this is the flash shadow on her hair, otherwise interesting scene.
