For Darren

The sun actually came out yesterday after weeks of rain so I took advantage last night and went for a little walk. These are two of the horses that board at our neighbor's facility. Pretty Boy (near) and Wrangler (far)

Made some adjustments, added buzz, and history brushed it off the horses.

Really beautiful! Perfect composition with the horses balancing each other out, the fence lines, and the bales of hay in the distance ...

Thank you so much Marcie, really needed a bit of a boost today. You already know I love this, and will say it again. The horses could not have been in better position if you had done it yourself, and know you did not...LOL..Your colors and lighting really complament the image. Like the fact you brushed the effect off of the horses as well.

This is gorgeous Marcie!! I love the way you did not buzz the horses. Must admit I am not sure how you brushed it off the horses with history. Do you use RAW format? Such a beautiful composition. I really miss horses.
