I was experimenting with the new canon 680ex flash and I shot this photo around midday. So I used the flash to bring back some of the details otherwise lost. Then I wanted to bring back the horses "texture" to get a feeling of more than simply a 2d flat image. I also wanted to get a different angle on the horse to try to show just how big he really is. I figured the best way is to get low and shoot him in an upward motion. I hope I achieved it, any feedback would be nice. Thank you.
