Really nice. Good use of HDR.
Just a shame the third horse is hidden. Only hope you had some other shots with the three horses in.

I wish so too but unfortunately not, I was there for about 10 mins... hoping... However the third horse didn't move his head out of the other's ass the whole time Blush

Its a really nice shot against that menacing sky.

It would be better with the third horse visible, but since its not, - its best if you remove him completely; though tonemapping may have hekped, it wasnt able to deal with the blown area of sky between the horses, and this can also be sorted out by copying an area of sky that not blown, and pasting it over the blown area, - then clean up with a layer mask.


Ive done both changes in a mod to show how it looks.


Hope this is helpful,



regards

It is a strong image but I immediately knew it was HDR because of the brightness around the horses. That's the down side for me - the less than natural effect which should not draw attention directly if it is to succeed. Even then, the left horses back fades into the sky and you could do to lighten the faces a touch with the dodge tool.

I can see how difficult the lighting was, and the general effect is quite strong. It is when you look a bit longer, you begin to see things to change.
