Photo Contest with prize...Ends 29 April

I haven't been on the boards for a few months mainly due to just been too busy. But thought that it would be fun to start a photo contest to get back into it. And the winner will get an 8x10 print of one of my horse photos of thier choice, a $50 value. The choices are located here Horses - dingoimages' Photos More photos will be put up for your choosing shortly. Many of them being both national and international winners.

There are not any catagories. The photo must have a horse in it. You choose the catagory.

1) You must be the photographer to have full rights to the image. Meaning you cannot be in the photo.
2) If a photoshopped image, you must explain what steps you took to get the result.
3) Only one photo per person will be accepted. If multiple are entered then the first photo will be the only one to be counted.
4) Photos not taken by you will be disqualified.
5) Watermarks ARE allowed and encouraged.
6) Clear and sharp photos are a must, unless purpossely blurred image for artistic needs.
7) Photos must be posted in message or attached, no links will be allowed.
8) Contest starts immediately, and will be closed on 29 April at midnight (12am) PST.
9) Results will be posted on 30 April.

I've always loved the way his forelock came across his eyes.

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.

It's not always what you say but what they hear.

Uploaded into Photoshop CS5: adjusted brightness/contrast, tones, and hues.
Added a layer mask and did some blurring to the background.

Here is my entry, I was outside the round pen and had my hand through the fence and under the jump. Such a cool angle and a rather lucky shot (I have the worst timing on shots like this) Anyway, Triple To A Tia is the horse!
