This is a beautiful portrait of a young lady and her horse. You've captured a very tender moment, and the post-shoot processing is "just right." Congratulations. #1476525

Thank you for your kind words Susan. I did this photoshoot with the intent on processing in B&W. I will post couple more tomorrow. #10241779

Extraordinary Portrait.
As Susan stated it certainly reflects the tenderness and bond between them.
You managed to get the precise moment.

I agree, this is a wonderful moment and you've captured and processed it beautifully. Awesome, Awesome. #10242413

Beautiful capture Arthur. The post processing makes this look quite authentic. It looks like she is wearing nail polish. If so, you might want to clone that out as young ladies back then did not wear any. #10242421

Arthur Bohlmann July 24, 2012

Thanks Carla. Robert thanks for catching the nail polish on her fingers, I did not even see it. can I lie and say it is dirt? Hahahaha #10242447
