Obie


What your opinion on this type of photo. I was drawn to it in the group because his whole self filled the frame. And of course I know him...so I think that this captured his 'self' really well. It's probable a little bit overexposed.

I love it! His eyes light up and it just captures such a sweetness about him. You could darken the edges like a vignetting around the edges if you felt it was too bright.
Would be pretty in black & white as well!
Great job!

If you're wondering about the extreme closeup, I think you know, from my bee photo today, that I love that close-up perspective. Sometimes, that is what we see, so that is what we ought to capture. I love it, actually. It really draws me into the eye, and I feel like I may have glimpsed the soul of a horse. :)

IT's an eye-catching photo.. love the way even the bit of background we can see is brown.

I think it is perfect. I love it. Beautiful!!!

Sorry I haven't been a very good bloggy friend these last few months. Just been really busy!

Thank you everyone!

Amy...I've never tried to do anything with vignetting....I'll have to play around with that. And it never occurred to me to try B&W, which is scary because last months Outdoor Photographer was dedicated to B&W (the personal learning curve is steep here in Western PA)!

Roxane...thanks! I love the smallest details of life.

Tami said...

Lady Fi....I too liked that the whole frame was totally him.

Carrie...that's okay Girl! We can't be everywhere at once.

Hi Tami, I think this is an amazing photograph and the horses magic comes out perfectly, really capturing eyes and light. I also love the color!

Thank you for your comment on my post on Gene Ovnicek and Natural Balance Hoof Care.
I think it is great that your horse is able to go barefoot for such a long time now.
I would like to know what ground your horse(s) is (are) walking on???

He looks like a big teddy bear! Such a cute picture!

I know this is a really old thread but I love this! The close up is one of my favourite type of horse shots. He looks such a kind boy.
