No, it's a crappy photoshop job, BUT at least the horse looks proportional. The second photo is a decent enough conformation photo, but it completely showcases why you pay a professional to do your ad photography. The second photo shows a horse with a GIANT head and a crappy neck at best... and that's as far as I got looking at it.... The first photo shows a typey head and a decent neck. Amazing what the right eye and camera can do, hey?
I would bet my hat that the first photo was shot with a telephoto lens, or one that doesn't have any sort of distortion towards the edges, and that the second photo was shot with a point and shoot or with a crappy lens for that job. Now, there ARE ways to shoot with a P&S camera and avoid distortion... this person hasn't figured it out.
