    My Daughter's Horse

    I was supposed to be taking some shots of my daughter, but Tucker was more interested, he thought there was a bucket of food involved.
    Nikon D80 18-135mm 135mm @f5.7 1/320 ISO 100 and a bit of PP in CS4
    C&C welcome.

    Practically perfect rim lighting! I'm wondering if your daughter is still o.k. with your telling her to hide behind the horse? Would you be at all interested in cloning out the one little stem just in front?

    It is amazing what you don't see, fixed the stem.
    The daughter is fine this horse is so quiet you can climb all over him as he doesn't care.

    This is a beautiful image.
    I do wonder if it would be even better with more detail on the face of the horse?
    What do you think?

    You could be right Brian.
    The wife agrees with you.

    Lovely shot Stephen! As Jim said; almost a perfect rimlight.

    My only comment is that I would like to see the detail somewhere between the first and second image! The first is a bit too dark, as Brian pointed out, and the second is bit too light! Just my opinion of course.

    Beautiful shot, Stephen ~ the lighting is really nice. Animals of all sizes grab my heart.

    Shawn,

    When you gave more detail to the face of the horse, Im assuming you did some dodging? Did you only focus on the face area? Im asking because it now seems a little strange with the face lighter and the bottom half still dark. something just seems unnatural shadow wise. It looks like the right side of his face has some fill lighting, but the bottom half does not. Am I making any sense? Or maybe its just me! Otherwise its a great shot that your daughter would love!

    Thank you for your replies.

    I have had another go at lightening the horse's face.
