    A striking image, Crystal. And I learned something from your composition. That sort of crop would never have occured to me...until now. :)

This is AMAZING! I would have never thought to take such a close up picture of a horse like this. I may have to try this sometime. Great work!

BAM! into my favorites. Excellent shot. Sooo cool. You know, I'm gonna have to upgrade my camera - of course it takes skill to take shots like this too and you have it. All of your photos are fantastic.

Great image Crystal. Love your lighting and clarity. :-) I know how hard it is to get a good eye shot. All my horses try to get closer to me and won't stand still :-)

The lighting and clarity on this is amazing! Excellent work. I tried to capture one of these with a horse... never did get it right.. you absolutely did!

Thank you very much Sharon for truly appreciating this one-of-a-bazillion that turned out. It might have helped that this particular horse didn't know me and was cautiously curious.

Thank you so much Amy! You know, I have more than I will admit of blurry-up-the nostrils, cropped the ear, swooshed by a tail ... shots. I was elated to catch this one. Lucky too.

Thank you for the wonderful encouragement! Truly appreciated :)

Thank you soooo much Amanda for the fabulously supportive comment! I'm very happy that this one got noticed. This "horse" was such an entertaining and curious model that I have very unsuccessfully failed at trying to duplicate this same type of capture with other horses since.

Very good, so pleasant.
I especially like the light, and your choice to shift this eye in one side, and have the other side full of nothing, that is full of thought ;-)
Bravo!
