Again: I'm so enchanted by this photo, Phyllys.

A beautiful horse and rider- position and with surroundings that is so dazzling - the snow that looks like the horse just stamped the ground to give it extra effect - - I just have to as you:

How and with what did you capture this?

And how did you achieve this dream-like look?

Will you share the information? #11076224

Phyllis H. Burchett 7/2/2014 6:18:26 AM

Thank you so much everyone for the lovely comments and a big congrats to all finalists and winners!!!

Kirsten, this was taken with a Nikon D4 70-200 F2.8 lens at 185mm. Settings were F2.8 1/1000 ISO 400. Didn't do a lot in post as the light was beautiful that morning, a little Nik tonal contrast on rider/horse and snow...then I blurred the background to bring more focus on the main subject. Hope this helps!
