Post-Processing: Topaz to denoise, cropped to subject, cloned out a couple of minor distractions, Topaz 5 to finish       Extra Info: Winter is off-season for the horses at the Central Experimental Farm, and their shaggy coats bear testimony to the cold. In the summer, teams of two, beautifully groomed and caparisoned, pull carriages of visitors through the tree-lined roads, to the delight of everyone.

    Those eyes are so expressive, it's almost spooky! Nice shot of the horse, I just find the background a bit distracting.

    A truly magnificent specimen. Nicely photographed to show the character of the horse. The background gives it context. I find the blur on the fence vaguely irritating. This image sticks in my mind. Well done.

    This is a very large horse, and because it's winter, he's cooped up with his buddies in a rather small enclosure. Not only that - there is an inner fence that prevents people like myself from handing over carrots and apples, hence the rather disgruntled look. The background isn't very appealing, and perhaps I should have blurred or darkened it. I didn't do much processing - He really did look a little rough around the edges without my help.

    Nice horse portrait but the background has me wishing you'd chosen a different background. I find the hose getting lost in the background - maybe I would have selectively darkened it.

    A fine model you hired here! You caught the animal in a good pose. In some places, the background blends too much with the subject. Still in my favs, though.

    Good capture of the horse, just seems a bit over processed to me especially in the mane.

    I appreciate the extra info you provided. It looks like a very large horse. Interesting pose you got. I like the composition but something about the horses expression is kind of off putting for me. I may be reading too much into those eyes!
