This was shot in raw in afternoon light. lens was Canon 70-200L IS. Shot as I sat on the ground in front of the stallion as he ran free(a little intimidating, but he is a gentle giant)
The Stallion is a Friesian named Leo who stands at stud in Cave Creek, AZ. Owner is Stefanie Maas. I extracted the image of the horse and drug it onto the textured, framed bg (courtesy of StruckDumb at Deviant Art)Added more texture with various grunge brushes.
