Willie again, this time after just having had her feet trimmed. I suppose I could have gone hawg wild and done all kinds of weird-ass PS tricks to her, but I know only a couple and can't do them very well. There are enough PS wizards on this site. That's their job!

Shot inside my friend Lisa's barn from atop a 6 ft ladder with the wide angle lens. Willie is standing ground tied, meaning that with the lead rope simply dropped to the ground, she literally thinks she IS tied...even though she is tied to nothing.

pp: RAW-TIFF conversion, crop, shadows/highlights, brightness/contrast, clone out another horse's head, use Topaz Tilt/Shift lens effect (thanks Bear!), resize, sharpen, save for web

This is the first image to pop when I start looking at the challenge and absorbed me completely. It set the tone. So little fuss, just some blur and curves and we get to weave an entire story. First page stuff.

I am a horse of course. Shall I run? Shall I stay? Maybe just a day in the hay.

Now THAT is an interesting pov. And yes, it DOES make your butt look fat. Love the lensbaby.
