I can't believe there are no clicks and comments! What a terrific shot and a lovely scene. I love the B&W treatment, the toning is very good. I would like to see it in colour as well, though. Very lovely and very nicely done.

A wonderful girst image and a fine welcome by the members Kellie. Hope there's lots more to come of this quality. You have a fine composition with a wonderful portrait of this horse, the power of the neck is well desplayed and the b/w concentrates the image on the horse within the foggy landscape.

Hi kellie welcome to epz!

I am always honest with people here when i crit and image,some like that and some dont.
But thats just me and if they dont like honesty then thats tough....

I have looked at your web site and their is some pretty impressive shots on there,more so the cars etc so well done on them Wink Get some on here lol.
Right the shot above if i'm honest its an average shot thats made slightly better by what looks like a soft focus effect. And it does make it slightly better.

I noticed you have made a lot of comments and thats good,but sometimes it goes against honest crit and by that i mean some folks will click yours back because you have clicked theres and that can and often gets you more clicks than the shot normally would.

SO what i am saying is not meant to come across as negative.
But be careful as you will not improve if people are just clicking because you have clicked theres....
SO give honest crit to others and tell them exactly what you think of a shot the good and the bad and you will get the same.
Thats the only way to improve yopur photography...

Hope this helps Wink
