You heard the lady. Give Ham Operator a kiss!!

Hammy is the only one of a small herd of 5 old TB broodies whom I haven't used yet in a challenge. Will be interesting to see how she does.

I love shooting horses. Depending on the horse and what you want to get, you can easily get a shot full of drama, majesty, nobility, speed, power...and yeah, a certain level of cartooniness too. Horses' heads are long and angular and perfect for wide-angle work like this.

pp: RAW-TIFF conversion, shadows, brightness/contrast, some HDR, clone out a hair or two, resize, sharpen, save for web

No self-respecting horse would allow such an image...must be a one-eared camel!
