    Thank you very much for your comment (and your vote :) ). I really appreciate it. I thought there were some great photos in the competition and am happy to be in the TT.

    Congratulations on your finish in a very tough competition. I am surprised that this didn't finish higher, and it was my top pick. Everything was perfect in this capture except for the loss of Sam. Beautiful capture, and this would surely be a wall hanger in my home!

    Thanks, Jade, and to all of you others who made such kind and generous comments. Sam did not belong to me but was my favorite subject after Elliott (Right, Jade, good eye) got moved.

    It must be so difficult to lose a lovely animal like Sam. What a beautiful place to spend his last days.

    A true classic shot of an aging horse, would make any wall proud.

    Reminds me of Elliott (the horse not the Panachallenge member!) There is a greatness in this shot, a true artistry. Wonderful, ethereal lighting, balance, colour, tone. One of the greatest entries ever. (Frames not allowed.) In my top 5.

    I like the painterly aspect of this, with such fine attention to light and shadow and subtle color.
