    First time for me for horses.
    And I hope they are @Snips approved as he does a wonderful job
    .
    Froze my hands and had to warm up twice. These horses wanted some love, not photographed! They kept coming up to me wanted some petting.

    This one I wanted it to turn a bit. No deal.

    I know the focus is on the mouth! It went straight at me as i was shooting.

    I think it will be worth going back. I want to get some better full body shots.

    Both shots are great. I do slightly prefer the first one though.

    Thanks guys. I do like #1 however I wanted a more turned look. Maybe a hint of it's other eye or lashes. It finally turned but to the opposite.
    As for the second, I missed it but I do like the darker grunge look. I want to experiment more alike, with maybe a bit of gaussian blur.
    Horses were on a hill right up where you can reach them with the morning light also reaching perfectly.
    I shall return.

    For me the first is the best the light in the second along with it being white is very harsh, the first is much softer and a nicer pose.

    Love the first but don't like the second at all if I am honest.

    First is the best of the two Marc, second doesn't work for me - think you would need to crop most of the body out and just keep the head in the second IMO

    Lovely horses, oh I do love those animals. The first shot is very well captured, not quite perfect as you are already aware, but working with children and animals...
    The second doesn't work although I still like it - but there is a rule about not approaching horses head-on except where you actually want to create a fear response, so maybe that rule needs to be applied to photographing horses too!
    Keep at it - I love seeing horse photos and you've just inspired me to add that to my list of ToDo's with my new D500.
