I like it Miles but I prefer yesterdays equine shot :)
Wonderful contrast in both the last two shots. I'm envious of your b&w processign abilities.
def like the uncropped version a LOT better! awesome shot!
Love It!!!! Great shot. I love horses and i have a close relation with them, so i can feel this moment, great capture. Congratulations
A very good shot indeed, your b&w conversion is spot on. I prefer the cropped version of this but either would work cause the image is that good. - [Chuks]
While I can see the reason for your crop, I have to say that I prefer the uncropped version. Either one is a very successful effort.
Thanks all, I should mention that I cropped it more because I wanted more of it to fit on the page than for aesthetic reasons, the uncropped version is definitely my choice. A bit lame I know :)
Your images have a real quality to them that makes them stand out. Seems to be a combination of shrpness and contrast not sure but it works so well.
The uncropped version is tops for me!!
Wow -- fantabulous b+w processing!! An an equine person, yay! For what it's worth, I prefer the cropped version - the bar on the bottom of the uncropped version is distracting for me. :D
Miles, Thank you for putting my link on your site. I have enjoyed your photos for a long time. (I'm a silent visitor) Thanks again.
I too like the uncropped version much better... I am always a fanboy of your work.
That is so awesome! I love how you get your shadows so rich looking.
Unusual and striking capture.
Mr Ed! This is a great shot, like the b&w conversion a lot and as with most, prefer the uncropped version.
Ohmygod, that's a crazy horse.
Miles -- I think the crop works well here.
I'm not put off by the crop either. If anything, it helps focus the eyes on the horse eye. What a striking photo. Nice capture.
ha. Great eyes: "Buddy, did you get consent for this shot?!!" :)
Thats quite a look.
I think it looks much better cropped actually.
Miles -- this shot couldn't get any better -- love the eye -- it's great ... LOVE the b&w work, too...
miles -- I JUST looked at the uncropped version -- I like it a smidgeon better than the one you posted ... dunno why - I guess for me, I spent a lot of time at the race track -- a rail bird, if you will -- so seeing that rail reminds me of the good 'ol days...
Love this photo. The expressions are fantastic - horse vs. jockey in the shadows. Well done.
thats another wonderful 'capture'
I believe that the full size version is better, for no real reason other than that it gives the viewer a better sense of the environment, even if it is only a little more.
love the expression on the horse's face.
The horse totally reminds me of the one in Animal House.
Now you know I love this shot.
Dramatic, super shot!
Very nice shot!
