Just back from a weekend in the Camargue with Lillian - this is one of the shots I'm quite pleased with. Comments and criticisms are very welcome.

A very high class shot of these two stallions interacting: I remember so well Lillian's fine shot from last year. Hope you got lots more like this..........will watch this space, as they say. Love the 'pose' of the pair if I can call out that, and you have frozen the action perfectly. A fleeting nature moment preserved for all time.

Thanks Brian - I desaturated it because I'm not a fan of bright blue skies.... I think the next step is to do a high key mono as suggested by Keith.

If you do a mono version - use the original coloured version - it will help with the contrast.Smile
