Daylight stars
Lens: DA 16-50 Camera: Pentax K-7 

This is an up-down photo, the boy was training the horse passing many times from this point,
small bubles were created in the water pool from the last passes
and all this picture was like a sky full of stars in this afternoon sun light.

I have increase a little bit, saturation and shadows/highlights (curves).

Amazing - great eye for this shot !! I would like to nominate it for the creativity , the processing applied and again for how keen your eye was ! Spotting this composition was a recipe for fantastic, painterly, dream-like scene - well done ! I would probably go ahead and crop out the bottom part to make it even more surrealistic - by getting rid of that horse legs - it would improve the composition too in my opinion. Still a great shot !!

Thank you manntax, i see what you mean cropping the legs of the horse, but i just wanted to keep the ''key'' of reallity in the frame... any way i have more frames of that point, maybe i will try it in one of them...

I nominate this photo...No way!!! Great idea, great composition. Honestly, I would not think of it. I'm big fan of B&W but there are some photos which looks just better with the colour. This is one of those photos. Good job!
