This is Cheryl from my barn riding her horse Cabrillo. I took some pictures of them yesterday and decided to experiment with tri tones and also a great sharpening process I read about in my CS3 workbook. I also ride dressage like this - or at least attempt to.

Love this shot! I'd love to hear about the sharpening process in that CS3 book- and the crop is perfect- it looks wonderful!

This is really nice, the lighting is awsome and the b&w converion is so well done. The texture added enhances the shot too, well done!

Great energy in this image. I showed it to my horse-crazy daughter, and she loved it. I'll concur with the thumbs up for the crop. It focuses all of our attention on the powerful form. This reminds me of a shot that I took of my daughter for the Slice of Life challenge in October.

Excellent crop and light - the shadow on the left is outstanding. Very inspired image - love it.

Excellent crop, and the light is just perfect! At first I thought I was looking at a display in a glass cabinet, like in a museum. : )

Beautifully processed. You demonstrate a wonderfully quirky and unique eye in all of your photographs. You tend to crop to the germane context of each photo and that directly focuses the viewers thinking as well.

This gives the appearance that the horse and rider are trying to go like crazy inside a box. Almost like a miniature that you are looking at through a diorama. Does that make sense? Love your horseys.

very interesting crop, excellent b/w conversion and toning. textures are just present enough to give the picture some mystery

This is so glorious. I love the crop, and the tones are so beautiful. The texture works great here too - I like how it seems to accentuate the veins on the horse's muscles. :)
