Winter coat

By waltknox
Hope everyone had a great weekend..... I was very pleased with the response to my shadowy barn image . Thank you all,
PM`s were sent to all who gave their awards. Once again thx to Geoff ( Simmo73 ) for his GEA .
A winter horse for today ,
my editing skills are lacking in some areas.. if anyone wants to try a mod that would be wonderful and appreciated. I would love to see the horses nose in better focus . Not sure if that can be done as I am not a photoshop genius by any means.
A framed 8 x 10 copy of this one and a few more of my horse photos are going to a gallery that supports battered woman and their children in a town near where I live.
I`ll never make money at this hobby (which was never the intent) but if my photos can possibly help raise money for a good cause well count me in .
cheers walt

I've done a mod where I used Levels to get a full range of tones, then brightened the image using Curves.

I applied selective sharpening on the head using the High Pass method as it's very controllable and subtler.

Finally, I made a selection around the red wall of the barn in the background and selectively reduced the reds as it was that was qyuite a
distracting part of the image.

It's a nice portait in super winter light.
