The horse was not afraid, although it appears she was. She wasn't rearing up at the trainer, either, although it appears she was.

She was changing directions abruptly and lifted her front feet to put them down in the opposite direction.

I thought it looked really violent though, although it wasn't, so I entered it. *grin* They're really really good friends.

I don't think I've ever done a BW/Sepia for a FS before. I'm hoping I'm not crazy.

Oh wait.

I am.



I forgot.

OK, I'm going through the Free Study submissions, purposefully finding those images I think are shot with a less conventional eye - this is one of those images! Thanks for offering something that isn't just DPC friendly eye-candy (though of course there's nothing wrong with eye-candy). I'll be picking one of these images for my Mu (most underrated) award:

Positives: Sometimes during this comment series I find myself commenting on images that have more than 'just' niche appeal - this is one of those images. What a brave edit to take this so dark but I really believe it is this boldness which is the key to the success of the image. The compositional elements are fantastic - such drama. The more I look at the image the better it gets.

Critical stuff: Nothing really, though I worry about the edit to your background.

Overall: This is a very good image, full of drama - I expect this to do very well.

Seems a touch on the dark side to me, but otherwise a very nice action shot.
