I instantly fell in love with the focus and sharp resolution of the horse's head which is why it deserves a high 'Vision' rating.
However I am afraid this portrait shot is not original. I have seen many shots like this one before unfortunately.
Although overlooking this, I think this piece has wonderful lighting and I adore how the horse is not centred in the picture which I feel can negate some beautiful photos.
Furthermore the background is not too disruptive of the main focus but provides enough color and shape to be aestheticaly pleasing.
As mentioned before, lovely use of camera equipment to capture a detailed image with just the right detail.
Thanks so much for taking the time to critique!
I would have to agree with your comments on the originality factor, or lack thereof. At the time, it was very bright outside and I was using my telephoto lens, so my main concern was lighting. Also, I appreciate your comment about the background- I was worried that it was too busy. I was at a horse show and there was so much happening! It was a challenging setting for taking photos, but I did manage to get a few good ones.
You are most welcome
Aha I see, yeh i hate it when the image is too bright when photographing outside but it looks like you were having lovely weather!
Oh yes I remember when I tried to photograph some horses at shows and it was so challengin with all the background events and stuff going on.
So very good job I think <3
