Two in the picture.

This is one of those pictures where you get a surprise when it shows up on the computer screen. I like it, to me it is natural. My wife, a confirmed horse lover, does not, because of 'the other'. I call this photo of a paint horse a high key color. C&C appreciated.

Nice fur with the eyes like a woman's !

That mascara looks sharp with feminine qualities behind that left eye!

p.s. i noted your interest in horses as so many of your shots posted are about horses.

You keep horses in farms?

Your feminine makeup descriptions really bring a smile. Thanks.
We are down to one horse at present. My wife is a very involved
horse person and she has a number of friends. I take whatever
opportunity I can to photograph their horses so I can get a good
variety. Like I said before, they are wonderful subjects if you can
get them to hold still long enough. My poor little P&S takes so long
to fire up and focus that I miss a lot of shots so am very pleased
when I get a good one.

I am quite amazed how much you could do with P&S. You definitely put a lot of work into your composition and delivering emotional energy across to the people seeing your photograph.

Have you thought of upgrading to dSLR?

Sure you can develope a gallery devoted to your only horse at present. Use different lenses, playing with bokeh etc. Have various photographs of all seasons. It would be so much fun.

Thank you again. As to the SLR I am looking forward to a K10D sometime after the first of the year. Want to get bills cleaned up before I take on that expense. Interesting idea to develop a gallery around one horse. It would be a real challange. Hummmmmm..........

I like the shot. The fly kind of bugs me (no pun intended) though, although that maybe something good about it to some people.

Have you ever seen Lynn Glazer's horse photography? It's unreal!

Kjask, thank you..again with the frame, as if you whisper under your breath
Talk to me about the frame. I am keen to get your vision to see if I can improve my presentation.

Skydragoness, My wife is 'bugged' by the fly too. Please point me to Lynn Glazer's horse pictures. I am interested. Thanks.

Here's her Smugmug site:

http://www.photo.lynnesite.com/

She has a love for the spanish blooded breeds (as do I) and some of her photos have been in many equine magazines, like Horse of Kings (a magazines all about baroque breeds). Simply gorgeous imagery. Prints can be bought off her site too.
Check out her photos for the Cavalia show, it's neat.

Great composition.. very nice portrait, I appreciate that there are no distractions on the left hand side.. nothing to focus on other than the subject...
