    Exclamation Need Honest Critics *ASAP

    I'm creating a calendar of my photography for our stables to sell as a fundraiser to buy horse shelters. All the photographs feature horses on our property. I'm on a serious time crunch. My nerves are getting to me. I've been processing hundreds of photos and my eyes are going buggy. Please give me your honest vote. I have no one else to ask. Is this photo calendar-worthy?
    Thanks in advance =)

    I personally don't like all the shadows on the right side of the horse...I know it's an evening pic, but it's overwhelming (the shadows)...I love the sunset though!

    The extra horse butt sticking out there bugs me a bit. Otherwise I would say its great.

    Thanks for your opinions... they're very helpful (keep em coming). I can easily get rid of the horse butt. Lol

    As for shadows, I feel overwhelmed, too. Good word. All the black at the bottom, I think, bugs me most. I can crop in tighter, though, if that would be better.

    From my unprofessional eye:
    The first things that stood out to me:
    The colours -- very pleasant and easy gradient
    The butt doesn't work
    The noseband rub
    The thick neck (or impression thereof)
    The right eye -- very pretty
    The crooked lip

    I played with it in Photoshop for a while to see if I could crop it someway that worked and didn't come up with anything for my eye. Have you tried doing a crop with a cutout sheet? That way always worked best for me when I was doing logo work years ago.

    I'm not trying to be overly negative, but honest. Do you have any other shots of the same thing? Because it's a very pleasing scene.

    Thanks so much! I'll definitely get rid of the butt and the rub. This horse is a rescue we have on the property and his lip hangs like that.

    The butt and the little ... glare? On the bottom right hand side are all that really jumped out at me
