So I want to state why I chose the pics I chose...
For Photo 1, I just thought it looked so "clean." The background was plain & simple, though not natural, however I liked the clarity as well as the position of the mare's face and how well shined up she was, especially her white areas.
For Photo 2, this one just stood out to me. The horse, like #1 is clean & glossy and faced in the camera's direction, though not looking directly at it.
Photo 3 is just a lovely image, made all the more stunning in b&w. Love the gleam in the horse's eye & the sharpness of him in comparison to the background.
Photo 4 is great I think. The lighting is beautiful and the way the horse is coming down into the photo made it a sure pick for the top ten for me.
I liked Photo 5 because of the contrast between the horse & his background, which looks nearly black. The grey horse really stands out.
Photo 6 just makes me laugh. I was really taken by the clarity of it, and how the water droplets stand out, even on his whiskers!
Photo 7 is lovely. The foal's expression is so sweet & funny and i'm pretty sure she's on the verge of a whinny! Lol!
I really liked Photo 8. The color of the mare along with the shadowing and the "baren" background really makes it a nice pic. I liked how her left eye is still shining, even in shadow.
For Photo 9 I chose it simply because of the overal positioning. The little mini is groomed up nicely & the purple ribbon sets him off nicely. I love the background he's put against as well.
And finally Photo 10 was a last minute decision. Something about it really stood out to me. I love the softness in the horse's eye. He looks so gentle & sweet & the picture is sharp and at a nice angle, I think!
