Shaggy face...
Posted By: clarenceclose, 03-01-2007, 05:48 PM

Windwalker again with his shaggy unshaven face.
As you can see there was a sacrifice of highlights to get the best shot of his 'darker side'.
He also has quite a few burrs in his forelock and mane so spring cleaning for him should be just loads of fun.

Any comments and critiques appreciated.

Nice one Clarence...so the Highlights are a little blown, so what...I like it.
And the background adds to the shot.

I'm on the fence with this one. This shot seems to be yelling "B&W!!" to me. But not a typical B&W conversion...

Have to play with that thought and see if I can make something of it. Have various B&W conversions I could try.

Thanks for the comments and suggestions.

ol' blue eyes?

This probably shows my massive ignorance of thing horse-related (my parents refused to allow me riding lessons, knowing full well what expenses that would entail!) but aren't most horses dark-eyed? The blue eyes are certainly striking, I'd never noticed the shape of the pupil before. Lovely shot, burrs and all!

Most horse eyes definitely are dark and the blue eye or ice eye is unusual. I believe it mostly shows up in paint or pinto horses and could have something to do with genetic variations in their markings pattern, but don't know for sure.

The horses iris is weird shaped, to may way of thinking, but then I didn't design them either. As they are prey animals, their field of view is enormous and they have two blind spots.

If you are curious, here is an interesting article on the horse's eye, short read.
