Yes please, tell us how to get the black background? I've always wanted to know!

If at first you don't succeed, try, try again

I could be wrong but I'm guessing they were outside pictures that you just crop the photo out very carefully and then fade out the back end of the horse. That would be my strategy lol

It's amazing how differently the final product looks from the original - I'll dig up the un-edited pics and I'm sure you'll be shocked at the difference!

Where do you board Blush? Maybe we can set something up.

I've also heard that some people will walk the horse's head out of the barn aisle and leave the aisle dark, not sure EXACTLY how you would do it though!

That's what I did, I'm not much for photo editing. I feel like a lot of photographers are not so much photographers, but good photo editors. The only thing I tweak on mine is the brightness, contrast, saturation, and straightening. The photo came out nice, but you can still see the little bit if the run in. I'm guessing you need something deep and the sun angle can't be to low, otherwise it would illuminate the shed. I would think you need to increase the shutter speed too.

Here is the one I did, contrast and brightness had to be played with, otherwise the beams would have been visible.

I've only achieved the photo effect twice myself.. I'm curious now to try a bit harder. I may have sweet talked my fiancé into coming out this weekend with my SLR... *ponders*

Nice pics, Blush!!
