1) Best Edit (This is my horse Cowboy. I took and edited this photo)


17) Dirtiest Horse


19) Star Horse

Well first of all Cowboy has a Star on his head! And hes a amazing horse. He is my first horse and my best friend. And the only boy Ill love for a long time. He is normal but hes not. He doenst blend in with the other horses, he has this thing about him. I get this feeling when ever I see him in the pasture. I love this horse and he should be known, hes a star.

That girl is a Cowboy.
Sometimes the best cowboys, arnt cowboys at all.

When you say no proffessional photos do you mean no random photos found on the internet by proffessionals? Or a proffessional can't enter? Just curious what you mean by that.

Can you define a 'Professional' photographer? Because one has a pro set-up, does that make him a 'pro'? Now a 'Pro' using a point & shoot, now not a 'pro'? A professional photographer is mainly a matter of opinion. Sure there are lots of pro's who claim to be pro, but in reality, they really don't know what they are doing. Then there are photographers who really know how to take a photo and edit and you would think they are pro's but they do not consider themselves 'pros'.

I am an advanced photographer. I know how to take photo's, right angles, rules of thirds, what have you. Can i be considered a pro? Sure, but I'm I? by no means. I just have that knack for photography? I know how to use pro software to make my photo's look stunning. I've been shooting for a long time, lots and lots of practice and time to get to the point I am at today. A good camera and a good lens doesn't make you pro by any means. As i can take the same photo with a 50 dollar point and shoot and still 'awe' people with my creativity and eye for photography.

Again, Define a 'professional'. (no pun intended, just curious what you mean by that).

This is exactly why I posted my question for the OP. She is the one who stated in her rules that no proffessional photos are allowed. You can't rate a pro.

And believe me I completely agree with you on the aspect that the camera doesn't make the photographer. I along with many other photographers struggle with that argument constantly. The digital camera's today are hurting the photo world. Because people think that buying an expensive camera warrants them the ability to be pro, when they are not and often offer their photos for very cheap or even worse free.

And to answer your question. Yes, I am a professional photographer. I make a living from my work. Selling prints of a select few of my photos, as well as being official event photographer as well as doing private farm calls for advertisment purposes for breeders.

And typically if you ask any other proffessional photographer what they think designates someone as a pro is the same as stated above. Someone who earns over 50% of thier income from thier photos.

Cool. I have my own opinion of 'Professionals'. Nice to see it's doing you well. I agree, Seems like today, everybody is a 'Pro'.
