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.

Superb capture of the horses Ann. My only ' nit pick ' is you have good light and shadow yet the sky and water are washed out.

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
