I liked the drama of the headshot, but the background was awful. The manes were too cmplex to select so I smudged, blurred, cloned and generally just messed up the background. Also added a vignette...did other stuff but can't quite remember got wrapped up in it ;)

Exif: FNumber: 2.8, ExposureBiasValue: 0/1, ExposureTime: 0.002, Flash: flash did not fire, ISO: 400, WhiteBalance: auto white balance
