photoblog image Pride

Pride

I know it breaks all the rules. Rule of thirds, blown highlights, people interfering, and it's not too straight, but if you'd seen the original....

I like this because this animal looks so proud, with no regalia, no saddles and not attached to a trailer. And I love the sky.

Later in the show, I saw the same horse done up like a dogs dinner, with multi coloured ribbons, brass bits and harnesses all over the place. If a horse could look like it was doing a drag act, then this was it. They took all of it's dignity, in my opinion only, of course.

The original Uffington White Horse perhaps? Beautiful.
Chris Macnamara: Very good! Why is it I missed this very clever play with words? Feel a bit daft now.
Break the rules, I love this capture grin
Chris Macnamara: They are there to be broken.
Oh fabulous shot! The angle really shows this maginificent animal in all its glory. Love the b/w perfect for this one. (;o)
Chris Macnamara: Cheers Ros. If I shot this again, I'd try to get even lower, and get more of that sky in. Hindsight is great.

What a majestic animal. I feel quite priviledged just to see this incredible horse standing there, proud, strong, powerful. Nice processing too, perhaps just a little blown on some of the highlights, but hey, who's looking at them?!
Chris Macnamara: You are right about the highlights, but I am pleased as I got this image back from a WB nightmare, as per a couple of others in this set.

I love the tone of this image
There is so much that is good about this picture. Stunning - in every sense of the word.
Chris Macnamara: Thanks very much Eddy. I am blushing, y'know.
