I really like the quality of this shot. well done! Nice colour and very sharp. The light is great.

It might be interesting if you cropped just at the right side of the car. Then there would be almost no modern signs in the picture. But then again the contrast between the 2 is also interesting.

I wonder if you can be charged with drinking and driving....

"Car park" to the rear, but no horse park?

Colors preserved perfectly!

I really like it.

Wonder how long it would take for the cost of a horse to offset the cost of gas.

Drink all you want at the pub and ride the horse home - can't be charged with 'driving' under the influence! But since it was taken at 12:40 I can only assume they are in having lunch.

In all it is a nicely composed picture. Did you try to get any closer shots? I seem to have this little voice that keeps repeating "get closer, get closer!" every time I go to take a picture. (Geeze - now I'm hearing voices! )

Good irony in the photo as well with the name of the pub and the car park sign above the horses. Good quality and fun picture. I suggest make a copy and give to the bar, they and the patron should enjoy!

A beast like that will take you home by itself - you'll just be the rider, so no DUI.

Great picture. Does burning the droppings smell any worse than burning peat?

Fun picture well taken - I agree with croping out the car. It appears that John Wayne and Lee Marvin live !

Great shot. Nice colours, contrast and sharpness. I would be inclined to lose the car.

I don't think they will stay longer, can't you see the the announcement on the right side, "food available"?
