Horse Silhouette

Uploaded: December 08, 2004


I took this at sunset at a Pop Photo Workshop in Michigan last August. Setttings: F11, 200 ISO, 100 shutter. I used the Canon 28-135 IS Lense.
I lowered the curves in Photoshop CS to increase the color. In addition I boosted the saturation slightly and used Noise Ninga to reduce the image noise. Resized and sharpened for the Web.

Please provide a critique on this image. I am always interested in improving my skills. This was taken at a private lake near the Double JJ Ranch in Rothbury, MI.

Mellanie December 08, 2004 it! Sorry, can't give you any thing else...I think it's a beautiful photograph just the way it is! #960703

Another nice one. Could have been improved with a little lower angle as the head and tail tend to blend in with the background. Lower angle would have given better seperation.

Remember, if you plan to use this or other images for editorial (News) use, do not get carried away with the manipulation. What you have done so far is acceptable, but not too much else would be.

Good luck and keep shooting.

Good...thumbs up again.

From that series I liked the one where she and the horse are in the water.

Great images...both.
