Sea Water Massage

By bglimaye
At one of the Indian Beaches , everyday this horse is being brought by the owner early sunrise time . I was told that his one of the legs is having injury and hence being sea water massage is the therapy to get recovered from it.

Looks a beautiful beach and the horse does seem to like the salt water spray. Hope it works for fixing the problem. I find the image very pleasing as is...........Sandy

I agree with Sandy also - nice composition. The horse does not look too well - it's ribs are showing.

Where's the owner. Decent image with some heavy shadow that you may have been able to lighten with the dodge tool. The horse looks ill.

The light is very nice but I agree that the horse does look very sad - thin and it's head is a bit down. Also the horse's head is in shadow so doesn't take advantage of the lovely light. It would have been better if the light was shining on the horse's face, but I know that you cannot always control these situations. Let's hope the horse recovers well.

Best wishes

I like this a lot, bg, and also the story that goes with it. Your horizon is straight, you have captured a lovely splash of water, the rocks are a lovely colour and texture, you have a part reflection of the horse, and your colours and composition are good.
However, the light was not in your favour and I think it's important that their is less shadow on the horse's head.
I have done a modification where I played with highlights/shadows in an effort to bring some detail into the shadow areas, including the rock on the right. The image is now a lot brighter. I also did a small crop in order to place the horse within the left-hand third of the frame.

Love your version as the horse's ribs don't show so much & prefer your colours
