Darren K. Fisher 5/25/2005 8:55:17 AM

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. #1395170

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.
