New Forest Pony having a drink in a small pond. I was actually quite impressed with the depth of the water for such a small pond.

I like that Miles, I love the way he is kissing his reflection or is he just admiring his looks. Made me smile.
Lovely colouring also.

Great shot, love the colours. I saw the prog on tele on Sunday about the New Forest on BBC2 and that inspired me to visit there this year, so does this image.

How do you know that this wasn't a short legged pony ???

Sorry Miles !

This is a beautiful natural image, I could easily see this imae promoting the new forest.

Well done

Fantastic shot. It looks really pure, no messy background or interruptions from the focal point. Excellent work. I like the crop you've chosen too.

Thanks for all the comments.

Lol@Andy...you could be right!

Chris, no filters used in this shot, but I did add a slight (20%) grey gradient at the bottom to darken the water a little between the bottom border and the reflection.

Image is pretty much as it is, I've cropped a little off the top and the bottom to lengthen it a little, and I did play with levels, saturation, bright/contrast, as is usual for RAW images to polish them up.

Sorry Ian, don't really like your version of it, I wanted the space in front of the horse to give a sense of open space, whereas your version is too enclosed, and highlights are burnt out. Thanks for having a go though.
