A couple of weeks ago I talked about when I was out driving through the country and I came across a pasture with a couple of horses(see Sometimes You Just Have To Stop And Pick Road Apples), well here is one of them up close and personal.
I like this photo because it begs the question what is the horse thinking of and what is he feeling at the moment in time. Hence the title “Why The Long Face“.
I did enhance the photo by opening up the mid tones in the eye to make them more visible. I also added a vignette as well as global enhance of lowering the color temp, raised the brightness and increased the contrast. Please enjoy.
