I was driving on the road leading to the south coast of Iceland. I spotted a few horses standing by a river, one horse was standing on the edge of this pond and I found this placment good and give a sence of serenity. I could only get two shoots of this horse with his head in a upright position before he ran away.;-)

Wow, excellent landscape here. The only thing I don't like is that my eye is immediately drawn to the lower sky, which is the main point of high key. I think that had it been cropped out possibly and some on the sides, the brightness could have been raised to create a brighter shot overall without blowing out the top portion. Still, one of the best in the challenge even if it is a little darker than a high key should be. 8

I'm too distracted by the cuteness of that to judge this image ;) lol

Just had a pedi and doesn't want to get her feet wet? Sense of scale is amazing. Love the reflection.

The reflection is such a cool element and I like how the horse is just standing there in the middle of the frame, making him the obvious subject. Good balance of light vs. dark in this high key shot. This is very nice.

The dreamy determination of the solitary horse. Top 5
