Time to stop

By Lillian  
This was taking it a little to far, and that hurt!!
the Guardians stopped their 'play session' after this and that was the end of out great time there in the Carmargue
the next image after the last one I put on then it was time to unfortunately come home
but as Arnie said....I will be back!

Thank You all for so many UA's have thanked each personally...very much appreciated

Hope that you like the mono, will put on the colour as a version, see what you think

The colour image is very good Lillian, but the mono has that tad of extra drama and excitement

Excellent mono image LillianSmile

Mono for me, an excellent image.

Superb Lillian but definitely agree with Adrian. Cathy
A superb image. I'm torn for a preference - probably the colour for it's softness, however the mono is very strong and focuses the eye more on the subject matter.

Amazing action image Lillian. No wonder you keep going back.

A gorgeous image either way.

The colour has the edge for me, though I think you can do variants of the mono that might be a little brighter/contrasty that will work well.

I would crop off the left to exclude those buildings, and add just a little on the right for balance.

The mono looks a wee bit dark on my screen. That aside, I still prefer the colour one. Such a beauty Smile

They both work well, Lillian, such a strong composition, full of movement and excitement. The mono is a bit flat though, the 'levels' can be adjusted to boost the whites quite a lot.

The colour version has more appeal for me, Lillian.
What a tremendous image, though.
Full of wild power...

Wonderful action and interaction, but to could so easily turn to anger, one extra nip and who knows.

Gosh, what a long way to have to scroll down to append my tuppence worth: wonder interplay between the two stallions, Lillian, and it has to ne the colour version for me, mainly as I cannot make out so much detail around the right head area in the B and W version. I think I noticed someone referring to contrast as I scrolled down and perhaps enhanced contrast would gee up V 1 for me.
