A simply awesome shot! The movement, muscle and sinew of the horse captured is brilliant! Also the DOF for me is perfect with the slightly out of focus background. Contrast is great and conversion to b& it!

At this point around 100 people have viewed this photo and not voted for it....sometimes I struggle to understand this site...ah well...Smile

I know I am being a bit contentious but if there are people out there that don't like this image enough to vote for it could they add a few comments as to why?

Cheers Guys, and many thanks Matt.
Matt - I think some people get so bored by stunning action shots that they can barely raise a finger to click or comment. Maybe people think the thumb will open into something else entirely? Maybe a sunset behind a naked puffin? Maybe they clicked on it by mistake, maybe they don't like my current style of work-up, maybe they don't like me.....

I would also like to know. Smile The again, maybe I'm not that bothered. Many thanks for stopping by and for your kind comments.

Honestly mate it cracks me up sometimes. At least it's properly focussed - give me that at least..............
Only the post before I referred to myself as a small pile of dusty crap so it's not all bad. Smile
I think I may concentrate more on my studio work in order to be taken seriously by the more serious togs on here. No, I must stop, must stop......stop......

Maybe I need a holiday. Need a lodger?
What's a lodger ? Can it paint walls and do plumbing ?

NevP 15 853 13 Canada
8 Jul 2008 6:14AM
Sure, when it's not on holiday. Smile

I think this'll be my last post for a while, it's not worth getting wound up and I don't want to come off like some arrogant up his own arse #@%* - even if I am. Smile
oh... sorry... didn't realize you were so bothered by it neville Sad

To be honest I think many viewers just browse the gallery and view/enjoy the photos but aren't involved in the site (commenting and stuff) apart from that. And, well, I re-visited this one about 50 times just to get your stats messed up Smile

seriously though Neville... don't stop posting. Just let those who almost daily come to see what you uploaded further enjoy your photos. We do it because we really love most of your uploads.
bummer, you just went one vote ahead of my last upload Sad

Okay... you can stop posting now

LOL Grin

Thank you guys, and many thanks Allan for your much valued award, and support and friendship. Smile

Koen - thank you for your kind words also. Well, most of them. Smile
I have to spend some time re-visiting your last shot now to reduce the percentage to a point where Pete will need to employ a mathematician to calculate it.

I don't want to come off like I don't appreciate people stopping by to check out what I'm doing, because I sincerely do. Smile Smile Smile
