Early yesterday morning on a hillside in the Brecon Beacons.
There's been quite a bit of processing of this image, various layers, dodging, burning, etc. that's why it's marked as digitally manipulated.

Thanks for looking, all comments welcome.

I love this shot Rob. I think it can be quite hard to capture the character of equines. You've made an excellent job of this cheeky little chap. Well done.

This is is superbly done Rob. I suspect it's a montage, and if so, it is very proficiently done as I wouldn't have even thought that if you hadn't mentioned 'digitally manipulated'!!! That said, it's probably not, and thus it's a great capture with superb processing to make the image jump off the page.

Thank you for the UA Dave.
No, it's not a montage. The horse has been selected though and brightened with curves and some dodging to help it stand out.
If' I'd brightened the whole image, I'd have lost the rich colours in the background and sky.
Maybe it's not digitally manipulated then, it's hard to know where the line is drawn!!

I think most people would agree this is processing not manipulating but what does it matter, it's a superb image which ever way you look at it. Smile

Superb shot Rob and the processing is top notch....I would not called this Digitally manipulated to be honest as 99.9% of the shots on epz would have to be classed as such - you have just used the "digital darkroom" innit. Smile
